SunEdison commits to creating over 15,000 MW of renewable energy

SunEdison Inc., a well known global name in the field of renewable energy development, has drawn up a mega plan to construct and commission 15,200 megawatts of renewable energy in India by 2022.

This is, perhaps, the largest renewable energy commitment made by any renewable energy development company to date in India. This commitment should be read in the context of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s commitment to add 100 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity to the Indian grid by 2022.

“SunEdison is proud to support the Prime Minister Modi’s mission to add 100 gigawatts of clean energy to India’s grid by 2022,” said Pashupathy Gopalan, president of SunEdison Asia-Pacific.

“India has a critical need to add capacity to its grid as it continues to experience strong economic growth and growing demand for energy, and SunEdison’s solar and wind solutions are an ideal solution to accomplish that goal quickly, cleanly, and efficiently,” he added.

The company presented its green energy commitment to the Prime Minister at the RE-Invest 2015 Global Investors Meeting and Renewable Energy conference in New Delhi on Sunday. RE-Invest 2015 is the first Renewable Energy Global Investors Meet & Expo to be organized by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).

SunEdison is expected to formulate a detailed roadmap to hit this capacity addition target.
