Project-Portrait


Located in Karnataka, the project consists in the construction of a 21MW wind farm in the district of Koppal. It is constructed to deliver renewable power to the Indian power grid. A total of 10 turbines are installed, each with an individual capacity of 2,100kW.

In total, the wind farm generates around 48,000 MWh of clean electricity every year.

Sustainable Development – The Sustainable Development Goals


While focusing on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, all our projects also generate multiple co-benefits. These are supportive of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

By supporting this project you’ll contribute to the following Sustainable Development Goals:

Good health and well-being: It is estimated that life expectancy in India is shortened by 23 months purely as a result of poor air quality. The project reduces the carbon intensity of India‘s power generation and lessens the reliance on fossil fuels to support economic development. As a result, local air quality will be improved.

Affordable and clean energy: Wind energy is a zero-emissions source of power. By increasing the share of wind power within India‘s energy mix, not only is the carbon intensity of the electricity grid lowered, but the gap between demand and supply is also reduced. Consequently, the reliability of power supply in India is generally improved.

Decent work and economic growth: The project provides new employment opportunities and workers receive annual training. The improved power supply will benefit local businesses.

Industry, innovation and infrastructure: Through the construction of the wind farm, local infrastructure is also improved. In particular, new access roads are built which improves transport routes.

Climate action: By reducing the reliance on fossil fuels, the project contributes to the reduction of carbon emissions and the fight against climate change. The total emissions reduction for the projects is around 45,000t of carbon equivalent every year.

Life on land: Alongside the reduction of carbon dioxide, the project also avoids other pollution such as sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and particular matter. As a result, the project reduces the causes of acid rain, which is a widespread problem across India.
