SPDA, or the Solar Power Developers Association, an independent industry association committed towards promoting the renewable energy space, has made a strategic decision to rebrand itself as ‘Sustainable Projects Developers Association’ (SPDA). The new brand identity reflects the association’s transition from representing pure-play renewable energy developers to that of representing end-to-end provider of solutions across the decarbonisation spectrum.

In line with its strategy to focus on the overall clean energy eco-system, SPDA – Sustainable Projects Developers Association has been representing emerging decarbonisation solutions like green hydrogen and its derivatives, wind, solar, hybrid solutions, energy storage including pumped storage and batteries, carbon markets, solar module manufacturing and electrolyser manufacturing. The Association is poised to deepen further its engagement with policy advocacy, discussions and consensus building on issues related to the energy transition.

The Association has been instrumental in accelerating the transition to green energy and offering assistance in policy evolution and healthier investment climate for renewable energy and green fuel projects and services in India. SPDA’s new identity will reinforce its position as a marquee organisation in the green services space, forging co-operation with leading global associations and holding events abroad in its pursuit to promote India’s leadership in the global stride towards decarbonisation.

Speaking on the occasion, Shekhar Dutt, Director General, SPDA and Ex Governor of Chhattisgarh, said, SPDA aims to provide a neutral platform and become the voice of the companies engaged in energy transition in the country. This new identity will also enable SPDA to expand its global outreach especially in countries where urgent transition towards clean energy is becoming the new mantra for Governments. SPDA will promote offerings across the spectrum that support decarbonisation within the context of the future of energy.”

Vineet Mittal, President of SPDA and Chairman of Avaada Group commented, The urgency of addressing climate change is evident. Worldwide governments and businesses are seeking to adopt a more sustainable approach to foster economic development and prosperity for all. Round-the-clock Renewables, Green Hydrogen and its derivatives have emerged as potent alternatives to fossil fuels for advancing accelerated decarbonisation across the sectors and geographies. India with its vast potential of renewable energy and skilled manpower is poised to play an important role in fulfilling global demand for Green Hydrogen and its derivatives.” He added, “Rechristening of SPDA marks a significant milestone in our quest for a carbon-neutral world. Our primary goal is to widen the outreach of Indian developers, represent their interests both in India and abroad in countries where there is demand for green fuels buoyed by their decarbonization targets. In its pursuit, SPDA will leverage its networking capabilities coupled with research backed representations for effective and transformational policy advocacy.”

Sandeep Kashyap, COO Ammonia, Acme Group, said We extend our felicitations to Sustainable Projects Developers Association on its rebranding and renewed focus on advancing green energy sources. The new identity not only signifies commitment to bolstering India’s energy security but also to positioning the nation as a global hub for green energy innovation. We eagerly anticipate working towards our shared mission for a sustainable future.”

Ranjit Gupta, CEO, Ocior Energy, commented “Energy transition stands at the core of climate action and sustainable economic progress. In an ever-evolving sector, the role of SPDA in shaping green energy discussions cannot be overstated. With our commitment to a greener world, we applaud SPDA for its new direction and look forward to fruitful collaboration.”

 SPDA represents more than 40 member companies across the gamut of renewables and green fuel industry including solar, wind, hybrid, energy storage, green hydrogen and its derivatives (ammonia, methanol, SAF).

The member companies of SPDA include all the large players who have actively contributed with a lion’s share of total renewable capacity under operation in India. Most of the members are also developing an active pipeline of projects for production of green hydrogen and its derivatives (green ammonia, green & e-methanol, SAF) in the country.
