On Tuesday, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the groundwork for the largest renewable power plant to generate 30 gigawatts of electricity. This massive project will be implemented in the Kuchi region of western Gujarat and it will cover 72600 hectares, which is the area of the whole of Singapore.
“The Renewable Energy Hybrid Park will be the largest in the world and will generate 30,000 megawatts of energy,” Modim said at the formal launch of the project.
In this “park”, in addition to solar panels, there will be windmills and specialized batteries that will store the energy produced. According to Modi, energy security is vital for India. The fashion government is trying to generate 175 gigawatts of energy by 2022 and 450 by 2030.
A special filtration plant is also being built near the Renewable Energy Park, which converts salt water into drinking water, and it will supply up to 800,000 people with clean drinking water.
