Our Operations > Solar Energy Project
India enjoys abundance sunlight across most of its geography for bulk of the year. This, combined with favourable renewable energy policies by the Indian Government presents tremendous potential towards development of solar power generation in India. The impetus to pursue opportunities in the renewable energy sector for CLP India is driven by our Group's climate strategy of reducing carbon footprint in the business by increasing the share of non-carbon emitting generation in our portfolio to 30% by 2020.
