Ghani solar power project

Project type: Solar

Offset vintage: 2020

£6.11 per tonne

The main purpose of this project activity is to generate a clean form of electricity through renewable solar energy. The project activity involves installation of a 500MW solar power project in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Over the initial ten-year crediting period, the project will replace anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases estimated to be approximately 887,800tCO2e per year. It will displace 919,800MWh/year of electricity from the generation-mix of power plants connected to the Indian grid, which is mainly dominated by thermal and fossil fuel-based generation plant.

Description

The project was implemented by Greenko Group and promoted by Zuvan Energy Private Limited. The project activity is a new facility (greenfield), displacing an equivalent amount of electricity which would have otherwise been taken from the fossil fuel dominant electricity grid.

The project contributes to sustainable development in the following ways. 

Social well-being: the project has generated employment opportunities during both construction and operation phases. The project activity has led to development in infrastructure in the region through new roads and improved power generation. 

Economic well-being: the project is a clean technology investment in the region, which would not otherwise have taken place. 

Technological well-being: the successful operation of project activity promotes solar power generation as a technology and encourages entrepreneurs to participate in similar projects. 

Environmental well-being: solar, being a renewable source of energy, reduces dependence on fossil fuels and conserves natural resources which are on the verge of depletion. Due to zero emissions, the project activity also avoids significant amount of greenhouse gas emissions and specific pollutants like SOx, NOx, and Suspended Particulate Matter (SPM) associated with conventional thermal power generation. 

Benefits
