A 13 GW project of wind and solar for India

This week was unveiled what is perhaps to date the largest renewable energies project in the world. Indeed, an Indian company – Airvoice Group – plans to build 10 GW of  solar PV capacity and three GW of wind power.

All these capacities are due to be built on various sites within the decade in the southwestern state of Karnataka. This occurs as China is also pushing hard on renewable energies.

This $50 billion (36 billion euros) project exemplifies even more India’s willingness to increase its use of low-carbon energy sources. The cleantech arms race is just beginning. Be sure I will keep you posted.
