ReNew Power (a subsidiary of ReNew Energy Global), and Gentari Renewables India (a subsidiary of Gentari), a clean energy solution provider in Malaysia have announced plans to set up equal joint venture to develop 5 GW capacity of wind, solar and energy storage projects.

The comp1any plans to use the funding for new initiatives in green hydrogen production, solar, wind, hybrid, and energy storage, cells manufacturing and solar modules.

In April 2023, ReNew emerged as a winner for Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited’s 500 MW auction. The company secured 200 MW of capacity and quoted a tariff of Rs 2.71 per kWh. While Avaada Energy, Mahindra Susten Private Limited, and Solarcraft Power Private Limited bagged 140 MW, 100 MW, and 60 MW of capacities, respectively.
