Adani Now Ranks As World’s Biggest Owner And Contractor Of Solar Farms

Figures published by analysts Mercom Capital Group show that India’s Adani Group – the owners of the highly controversial coal project in Queensland’s Galilee Basin – is now the world’s leading solar power generation asset owner in terms of operating and off-taker contracted solar projects.

Adani’s renewable energy portfolio measures in at 12.32GW – exceeding the total installed capacity of US solar in 2019 and displacing over 1.4 billion tonnes of CO2 over the lifetime of its current assets, according to Mercom.

Gautam Adani, chairman of the Adani Group, seized on the data to say it reflected his company’s commitment to a “clean-powered” future, notwithstanding its insistence on developing the Adani mine in Queensland.
