World’s First of its kind Suzlon wind Turbine with 120 mts hybrid tower to be Inaugurated by Hon’ble Chief Minister, Gujarat, Shrimati Anandiben Patel at Naniber, Kutch on 6th November 2014

Kutch, Gujarat: The Gujarat state Government with its focused approach on enhancing Renewable
Energy Portfolio is aligned to the dual objective of Sustainable Development and ensuring India’s
Energy Security.

In the State ‘s endeavor to promote Renewable Energy, Suzlon Energy has played a major role, with
installing about 50% of the total cumulative installed capacity of Wind Power in the State, with
around 1700mw of installations.

In achieving a major land mark in wind energy by Suzlon, Smt. Anandiben Patel , the Chief Minister
of Gujarat , is going to inaugurate World’s First of its kind 2.1 Mw capacity Suzlon wind turbine with
120 mtrs Hybrid Tower at Nani Ber in Dist:Kutcch on 6th of November,2014.

The new wind turbine is going to make low wind sites viable with increased energy output by
around 12 to 15 % higher energy generation over the other turbines of same capacity.

This is also being done along with celebrating crossing 1000 mw installation in the Kutchh wind park
in total planned capacity of 2000 mw by Suzlon, making it one of the Asia’s largest wind park its
kind.

The State of Gujarat, in the last decade under the pragmatic leadership of the Government of
Gujarat has emerged as one of the India’s largest contributor of cumulative Renewable Energy in
overall energy portfolio.

The conducive policy environment, thrust on Renewable energy, supported by effective planning
and administrative support by the State Government has put Gujarat on the top of all the states in
India’s Renewable energy map

With the highest Renewable Energy portfolio, consisting of highest of solar energy installation of
over 860 mw and 3rd largest installation of wind energy installation aggregating 3550 mw, the
State of Gujarat has emerged as the power surplus state with 24 x 7 power supply all across the
state.

The Gujarat model on the development of renewable energy has established benchmarks in India
and it is being replicated across states to enhance their clean energy output. it is testament of the
State Governments thrust on the development of clean energy through public private partnerships
(PPP). The state of Gujarat is credited with many firsts for Renewable Energy in India.
