India has started the process of setting-up renewable energy projects at its twelve major ports by investing INR 7.04 billion (USD 104.5 million) as part of the country’s Green Port Initiative.

India’s Major Ports to Go Green
According to MANA, in an effort to switch to renewable sources of energy to power the country’s major ports, the Ministry of Shipping informed that it plans to set up 91.50 MW of solar energy capacity at the twelve ports and 45 MW of wind energy capacity at the ports of Kandla and V. O. Chidambaranar.
Out of the 45 MW of wind energy projects scheduled to be developed at the two ports, 6 MW has already been commissioned by Kandla port.
The move comes on the back of a Memorandum of Understanding signed between Indian Ports Association (IPA) and Solar Energy Corporation of India in October 2015 for the development of solar power projects at major ports.
