This year, the BCO Annual Conference is supporting the 'Andhra Pradesh State Wind Power, India' project.

Andhra Pradesh State Wind Power, India

The project, based in Andhra Pradesh state, uses 42 wind turbines to generate a total capacity of 84 MW. This equates to 170,000 MWh/year sent to the Indian Grid. By delivering clean renewable energy the wind farm displaces energy generated from fossil fuel power plants and helps diversify India's overall energy mix. This assists in addressing India's national target to provide 175 GW of energy from renewable sources by 2022.

Sustainable Development Goals: In addition to delivering approximately 160,000 tonnes of emission reductions each year to take climate change action (SDG13), the project delivers other benefits.

Affordable and Clean Energy: By generating approximately 170,000 MWh of renewable electricity annually, this project leads the way towards estimations that renewable energy will provide 30% of the electricity sectors power demand by 2023.
