NTPC is taking various steps to make its energy portfolio greener by adding significant capacities of Renewable Energy(RE) Sources. By 2032, the company plans to have a minimum of 32000 MW capacity through RE sources constituting nearly 25% of its overall power generation capacity.
NTPC is pursuing capacity addition in Renewable Energy projects in two modes namely Own capacity addition mode and Developer Mode.
In Own capacity addition mode, NTPC sets up Renewable Energy projects on its own investment. In Developer Mode, NTPC acts as an intermediary procurer where it procures power from the Developers and sells to DISCOMs with a trading margin.
Own Capacity Addition
A) Commissioned Projects : NTPC has a commissioned capacity of 920 MW of RE projects under own capacity addition. The details of projects are as under:
|Sr. No.||Project||State/UT||Capacity (MW)|
|1.||Dadri Solar PV||Uttar Pradesh||5|
|2.||Port blair Solar PV||Andaman & Nicobar Island||5|
|3.||Ramagundam Solar PV (Phase -I)||Telangana||10|
|4.||Talcher Kaniha Solar PV||Odisha||10|
|5.||Faridabad Solar PV||Haryana||5|
|6.||Unchahar Solar PV||Uttar Pradesh||10|
|7.||Rajgarh Solar PV||Madhya Pradesh||50|
|8.||Singrauli Solar PV||Uttar Pradesh||15|
|9.||Ananthapuram Solar PV||Andhra Pradesh||250|
|11.||Mandsaur-Solar PV||Madhya Pradesh||250|
B) Projects Under Implementation :
1062 MW of RE projects are under implementation. Out of which 237 MW constitutes floating solar projects located in reservoirs in NTPC’s existing stations. Ramagundam 100 MW Floating Solar being set up under non PPA mode is the largest in the country. The details of projects are as under :
Projects under Implementation : 1062 MW
|11.||Bikaner (CPSU Scheme)||Rajasthan||Solar-G||250|
|12.||Jaisalmer (CPSU Scheme)||Rajasthan||Solar-G||150|
|(G- Ground Mounted, F – Floating )|
Under CPSU scheme of MNRE, it is envisaged to set up solar projects using domestically manufactured Solar cells and Solar modules with Viability Gap Funding (VGF) support from MNRE. Under this scheme, NTPC has so far won 1692 MW under competitive bidding of SECI. Out of 1692 MW, award has been placed for 400 MW (250 MW in Bikaner and 150 MW in Jaisalmer) as shown in above table and balance capacities are under tendering.
Developer Mode Projects
Commissioned Projects : 3900 MW of RE projects has been commissioned under Developer Mode so far
