Will the Revival Plan of JSW Energy's Renewable Business Boost its Presence in India?

Following the footsteps of Reliance Industries and Vedanta group, JSW Energy became the third company to announce a restructuring of its business in November 2021.

Billionaire industrialist, Sajjan Jindal, is all set to separate the renewable power business from the publicly listed JSW Energy.

The board of directors of JSW Energy has approved the re-organisation of the company's green (renewable) and grey (thermal) businesses.

As a result of this re-organisation, all present and future renewable energy operations will be housed under JSW Energy Neo, a wholly owned subsidiary of the firm.

This is in line with the announcement made by the company on 30 July that the board had approved the evaluation of re-organisation of these businesses.

Strong portfolio of renewable energy projects under way...

Currently, about 2,458 megawatt (MW) of renewable projects are under-construction, including the 2,218 MW of wind and solar projects, for which power purchase agreement (PPA) has been signed and are expected be commissioned in the next 18-24 months.

Also, the 240 MW Kutehr hydro project is expected to be commissioned in the next 36-40 months.

With the commissioning of these projects, JSW Energy Neo's total generation capacity will increase to 7 gigawatt (GW), with the share of renewable energy increasing from 30% to about 55%.

Equitymaster's Stock Screener: Identifying High-Potential Stocks Has Never Been this Easy

Fierce competition between Indian players in renewable energy space

India's renewable energy sector is set to become a battleground for the country's top billionaires.

The aftereffects of Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani's Rs 750 bn push into green energy, which promised to shake up the industry, were felt across other power companies like Adani Green Energy and Tata Power, who are also striving to be a major player in the renewable energy business.

In an effort to increase its presence in clean energy space, recently, Gautam Adani, chairperson of Adani Group, sealed the largest deal in India's renewable sector with acquisition of SB Energy for US$3.5 bn.

While, Tata Power Solar, subsidiary of Tata Power is consistently expanding its horizons in solar power play.

As the world comes to terms with the enormity of the threat posed by climate change, India's emergence as home to one of the world's largest clean-energy expansion programs is like a whiff of fresh air for the above-mentioned companies.

India's target of 500 GW renewable energy by 2030

Earlier this month, foreign secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla said that India's new target of 500 GW of renewable energy by 2030, announced at the 26th session of the conference of parties (COP26) in Glasgow, is a 'very significant' contribution to meeting the goals of the climate summit.

He also informed that PM Modi at COP 26 announced that by 2030, 50% of India's energy needs would be met from renewable energy sources.

The Prime Minister also stated that India will reduce its carbon emissions by 1 bn tonnes from now until 2030.

During COP26 address, Mr. Modi announced five 'amrit tatva' including the target to attain net-zero emissions by 2070.

He stated that India is the only major economy that has worked and delivered on the Paris commitments both in letter and spirit.
