NSE becomes India’s first stock exchange to invest in wind energy; Suzlon completes the wind power project

- India’s 1st Stock Exchange to harness wind energy for its captive power usage
- The wind energy project will cater to about 65% of NSE’s energy consumption
- Cumulative project capacity of 6.25 MW

Mumbai, India: India’s leading bourse National Stock Exchange of India Ltd (NSE) completed 6.25 MW
wind power project. Suzlon Group, one of the leading wind turbine manufacturer was the technical
partner for supply & commissioning of the project.

The project completion is a milestone achievement for NSE and Suzlon since it is India’s first Stock
Exchange to deploy wind energy to off-set its captive power usage. 65% of the energy consumption of
NSE office located at Exchange Plaza building, Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) Mumbai will be met by this
wind project. The project, comprising of 5 units of Suzlon’s robust S66, 1250 kW WTGs, will help in
reducing ~12,730 tonnes CO2 emissions annually. The wind energy project is located at Satara,
Maharashtra.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Mahesh Haldipur, NSE spokesperson said “The investment in wind power
project is part of our long term focus on sustainable development. We are committed to conduct
business in a way that protects the environment by using green technology. Harnessing wind energy for
our operations is a step in that direction. This is in addition to the various power saving and energy
efficient measures being undertaken at the premises.”

Mr. Ishwar Mangal, Chief Sales Officer, Suzlon Group said, “The increased focus and investment in wind
energy is a testament of efforts by corporates in India towards mitigating climate change and energy
security. NSE’s thrust on sustainable development and investments in wind energy will also encourage
other corporates to harness wind energy for meeting their energy requirements and to hedge power
cost for next 25 years thereby contribute towards a greener tomorrow. Suzlon’s ‘concept to
commissioning’ approach offers convenience to customers for setting up wind project for captive use.”

Suzlon leveraged its end-to-end wind solutions expertise to oversee the project completion from start to
end.
