The acquired 528 MW of operating wind and solar projects are spread across eight Indian states. ReNew Power held that the total enterprise value of these agreements is around $388 million (Rs 3000 crores) and is expected to generate in the current financial year EBITDA of about $51-55 million. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of this financial year.

Sumant Sinha, Chairman and CEO, ReNew Power, says, “The clean energy transition in India must happen at an increasingly rapid pace to meet—and green—the expanding energy requirements of the country, and to strengthen its longer-term energy security.”

He further adds, “Given the recent electricity shortages and blackouts, customers are even more keen to sign new power agreements to ensure future supply. ReNew Power will be at the heart of this growth in clean energy that will support India’s crucial fight against climate change.”
