At the forum, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and Adani Group chairman Gautam Adani also held discussions regarding the two projects.

Adani Green Energy is one of India’s largest renewable companies, currently operating a 20,284MW portfolio.

The company develops, owns, operates and maintains utility-scale grid-connected solar and wind farm projects.

According to its website, Adani Green Energy supplies the electricity produced by the assets to central and state government entities and other government-backed corporations.

Last year, Adani Green Energy acquired SB Energy India for Rs260bn. At the deal’s closure, SB Energy India had 5GW worth of renewable assets.

Adani Group chairman Gautam Adani has said that the group aims to invest $20bn in the renewable energy segment by 2031, as well as triple its clean energy generation capacity by 2025.

To meet its renewable investment target, the group plans to focus on renewable energy generation, component manufacturing, transmission and distribution.

Over the next three years, Adani Group also intends to spend more than 75% of its capital expenditure on green technologies.
