NLC India Ltd (formerly known as Neyveli Lignite Corporation), the Navaratna company under the Ministry of Coal, has set a target to reach 21,011 Mw power generation by 2025.

The company which was traditionally a lignite and coal-based power producer is planning to generate over 4,200 mega watts through renewables.

India has already set a renewable energy target of 175 Gw in order to achieve a target of generating at least 40 per cent of its power requirements using non-fossil fuel by 2022 and 45 per cent by 2030.

The objective is to reduce the country’s carbon footprint and to mark growth of renewable energy as a key indicator of the nation’s economic development.

NLC has set a target to reach 21,011 Mw power generation by 2025 with a share of 4,251 Mw from renewable energy. In 2019, with the commissioning of a 709-Mw solar power plant in Tamil Nadu, the company’s renewable energy capacity rose to 1,404 Mw.

Its thermal capacity rose to 4,640 Mw with the commissioning of the 500-Mw Unit-I of Neyveli New Thermal Power Project. NLC’s total power generating capacity, therefore, has gone up to 6,044 Mw.
