  • Billionaire Gautam Adani’s logistics-to-energy conglomerate has set up a new subsidiary, ANIL to undertake green hydrogen projects, generation of low carbon electricity and manufacture of wind turbines, solar modules and batteries as it looks to become the world’s largest renewable energy company and produce the cheapest hydrogen.
  • Adani Green Energy Ltd (AGEL), the world’s largest solar power developer, is targeting 45 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity by 2030 and will invest USD 20 billion to develop a 2 GW per year solar manufacturing capacity by 2022-23.
  • India also announced a slew of other, more ambitious, climate targets for 2030: increasing the share of renewables in the country’s energy mix to 50 per cent; expanding installed capacity of non-fossil energy from 450 to 500 GW; and reducing the carbon intensity of the economy by 45 per cent, as opposed to the previous goal of 33-35 per cent.
