Adani to develop 200 MW to 400 MW of solar PV in Australia


Indian energy giant Adani is continuing to diversify its business and to expand outside of India with two new solar PV projects that it is planning to develop in Australia. It is welcome news from the company that is also planning Australia’s largest thermal coal mine, much to the dismay of environmental groups in the country.

The two new projects, which Adani has already begun to design and start the tender process for, will be situated in Central Queensland and in South Australia. The company has now secured land rights for the projects, which will be between 100 MW and 200 MW each.

Adani is planning on beginning construction on the two projects sometime next year, and will represent their first renewable energy projects in Australia. They are likely not to be the last, however, as the company has already announced that it plans on building up to 1,500 MW of renewable energy projects in Australia within the next five years, many of which are expected to be PV.

They will be added to the 793 MW of solar plants that the company has already constructed within India, while it currently has a further 1,225 MW in construction or in late development.
