Feb23,2024



Mumbai: Bengaluru International Airport has signed an agreement for a long period of 25 years power purchase agreement with Renewable energy The company, Clean Max Enviro Energy Solutions (CleanMax) for generation and supply of renewable energy from a 45.9 MW solar-wind captive power project. This initiative will enable the production of approximately 90 GWh of renewable energy annually with a reduction of 642 lakh kg CO2. [64,200 metric tonnes]According to cleanmax,
The captive power project, set up at a solar-wind farm located in Jagaluru, Karnataka, which is owned and operated by Cleanmax, will consist of 36 MWp of solar and 9.9 MW of wind power plants, Cleanmax said in a press statement. “The estimated requirement of 90 million units of energy (kilo watt hours) on an annual basis is being planned to be sourced from the captive renewable energy power plant. This project will ensure annual supply of approx. 58.3 million units of solar power and 31 million units of wind power utilize the existing grid infrastructure.
The annual yield of 90GWh of renewable energy is equivalent to planting about 11 lakh trees annually, it said, adding that the Jagaluru wind-solar farm in Karnataka has a total capacity of 290 MW and is a power plant to reduce carbon emissions. “This is expected to result in a huge reduction of about 54,88,000 tonnes. CO2 equivalent,” CleanMax said.
“Solar and wind plants combine the two fastest growing renewable energy technologies due to their complementary nature. These highly efficient power plants provide reliability of continuous power supply and help in effectively managing the consumption load,” it said, adding that the project will be executed under an SPV named Clean Max BIAL Renewable Energy Pvt. Ltd.
Hari Marar, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, BIAL, said, “In keeping with our expansion plans, we have planned to deploy onsite renewable energy generation systems, offsite renewable power procurement to maintain our 100% renewable power consumption. Many steps have been taken for this. The long-term power purchase agreement with CleanMax will play a vital role in meeting the renewable energy needs of the airport expansion program and will provide substantial cost savings, further strengthening our commitment towards sustainability and responsible growth.” Kuldeep Jain, Founder and Managing Director of Clean Max Enviro Energy Solutions Pvt Ltd said, “This synergy in the aviation sector represents India's clean energy conscious leap, making it an important part of our progress towards climate care “
