Engie team eyes 1GW in India
Partnership with Abraaj Group to develop projects across several states
French energy company Engie is partnering with the Abraaj Group to develop over 1GW of wind projects across several states in India.
The Indian government has set a target of 60GW of wind power capacity by 2022, which will require a near doubling of the current installed capacity, the partners said.
Engie Middle East chief executive Sébastien Arbola said: “Engie is pleased to partner with Abraaj and work closely with its teams to share our business practices and skills.”
Abraaj Group partner Saad Zaman said: “There is a real opportunity to enhance renewable energy generation in India and we are delighted to be working with Engie to deliver affordable and clean power to the country.”
