Providing clean, renewable energy and a range of benefits to communities in India

This wind energy project in the Indian states of Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Telangana tackles climate change by providing a renewable source of electricity to the Indian Grid. The project also benefits surrounding villages – providing employment, boosting access to education and to clean water.

The context

A transition away from fossil fuels towards a clean energy alternative is an important development for India's rapidly expanding economy. Wind farms harness prevailing winds to create clean, renewable energy, while also providing important infrastructural, economic and social benefits for more remote communities.

The project

This project converts wind energy into electrical energy, across a number of wind farms, which have a combined installed capacity of 493.5 MW. This clean electricity is then exported to the Indian Grid, supplementing energy demands with an alternative to coal-fired electricity.

The benefits

The clean power produced by the project displaces an equivalent amount of power from the grid, which is fed mainly by fossil fuel-fired power plants. Therefore, it results in a reduction of GHG emissions. Mytrah Wind, the project owner, also runs a wide CSR scheme that supports the wellbeing of local communities. This includes investment to improve access to education, clean water and a focus on reducing unemployment and the lack of opportunities for young people in the area. It also runs two community camps, together with UNICEF, to empower young women by educating them on their rights, creative abilities and skills in healthcare, while a safe water project provides clean water, sanitation education and improved latrine services.
