An interview of Mukesh Ambani revealed that Reliance Industries is going to make a big investment in the production of renewable energy. Mukesh Ambani announced that his company would produce 100 Gigawatts of solar power by 2030. The government has set a target of generating 450 Gigawatts of solar energy in the coming days. It was observed from Ambani’s announcement that Reliance alone will produce one-fifth of its solar power.
Mukesh addressed at the International Climate Summit 2021. There he explained what policy Reliance would take in solar energy production in the coming days. In his words, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has spoken of building an environmentally friendly economy in India. We are ready to make his dream come true.”
A 5,000-acre Dhirubhai Ambani Green Energy Giga Complex in Jamnagar, Gujarat, has already been started and it would soon become the world’s largest recyclable energy plant, a Reliance official said. There will be four Giga factories. “We will invest Rs 75,000 crore in this project in the next three years,” he said. He also said, “Reliance is trying its best to produce hydrogen in a very cheap and environmentally friendly way. In that case, the price of hydrogen will come down to $2/kg.
Ambani said, “The Indian subcontinent has the blessings of Surya Dev, Vayu Dev, and other deities. It is possible to produce a sufficient amount of recyclable energy here. In our country, sunlight is available more than 300 days a year. Only 0.5 percent of India’s land can be utilized to produce 100 Gigawatts of solar energy.”
