ENGIE just won a 200 MW wind project in the State of Tamil Nadu, in India, in addition to another 50 MW wind project that had been won in that State last month. Earlier this year, ENGIE had marked its first success in wind in India with a 30 MW project to be developed in Gujarat State. All these successes bring a total of 1 GW of renewable energy generation capacities in India for ENGIE, installed or being built.
For the 200 MW onshore wind project, ENGIE proposed a tariff of INR 2.51/kWh (~USD 39/MWh) for a 25-year power purchase agreement. This project is part of a 2,000 MW wind tender floated by Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI).
The ENGIE Group is currently the largest independent electricity producer in the world. Renewable energy represents 23% of its global generation capacity (24 GW out of 102.7 GW, end of 2017), and its objective is to commission 14 GW of additional renewable capacity by 2022.
