ReNew’s main business is clean energy generation and hence this SDG is contributed towards primarily through ReNew’s core area of operation. We are currently contributing to 1% of India’s total electricity generation, only through clean energy and helping mitigate 0.5% of India’s total carbon footprint. By 2030 we aim to substantially increase India’s renewable energy percentage in the energy mix of the nation.
Lighting Lives is the core of ReNew’s Corporate Social Responsibility effort. Expanding its commitment to ensuring that development reaches the last mile, the concept of Lighting Lives was introduced. It is a “Bottom-up approach” towards ensuring energy security as a driver for development. As part of this program, ReNew Power is working in schools in rural India to improve the quality of learning environment by offering customized off-grid solar based solutions.
