Godawari Green Energy, the first to commission a CSP plant under the JNNSM in India
Godawari Green Energy Limited (GGEL) has won the race to commission the first Concentrated Solar Power plant developed under the Jawaharlal Nerhu National Solar Mission (JNNSM) promoted by India’s government to boost the solar generation across India.
The widely criticized CSP program included in the JNNSM has resulted a failure in its first phase, if we only consider the established deadline to commission the projects. Indeed, none of the plants has met the timeframe to put the plants on line.
However, the plant promoted by Hira Group’s subsidiary GGEL has been very near, just a few days over the deadline. This fact may suggest that the program was correct and the companies that were awarded in the bidding process have failed in their forecasts.
