Further, our proven excellence in safely building hydro plants and operating the largest hydro portfolio in the private sector has uniquely enabled us to develop Hydro PSPs in the country. We are closely working with the various State Governments to kick start development of these projects in the coming months".

JSW Energy has set an ambitious target for a 50% reduction in its carbon footprint by 2030 and achieving Carbon Neutrality by 2050 by transitioning towards renewable energy. The Company has set a target to reach 20 GW capacity by 2030, with the share of renewable energy increasing to 85% of the total. Around 2.25 GW of renewable energy projects are currently under construction, Wind projects of 1.26 GW tied with SECI, are expected to be commissioned in the next 12 months. With the commissioning of these projects, the Company's total generation capacity will increase to ~7 GW, with renewable energy share amounting to about 55%.
