The purpose of Jangi 91.8 MW wind farm in Gujarat is to utilise the wind resources for power generation to alleviate electricity shortage in Northern, Eastern, Western, and North-Eastern regions. The generated electricity is delivered to NEWNE grid (now Unified Indian Grid), which is dominant of fuel-fired power plants.
Purpose of the project activity:
The purpose of this project is to generate environmentally friendly, clean, GHG-emissionfree electricity, which will reduce the overall GHG emissions resulting from conventional electricity generation activities.
Scenario existing prior to the start of the implementation of the project activity:
The project activity forms a part of the NEWNE Grid of India (now part of Unified Indian Grid). The project activity generates power by using the kinetic energy of wind, thus resulting in zero emissions during electricity production. The power produced displaces an equivalent amount of power from the grid, which is generated mainly by fossil fuel fired power plants. Hence, the project activity results in reduction of GHG emissions. Hence, in the absence of this project activity, this power would be otherwise generated by grid connected fossil fuel based power plants.
Wind powered electricity generation is considered environmentally friendly. It replaces some of the fossil fuel dominated electricity generation mix of the current grid and contributes to GHG emission reduction. The project activity generates electricity by using the kinetic energy of flowing wind. There are no GHG emissions during electricity production in this way. The electricity produced displaces an equivalent amount of power from the existing grid, which is currently generated mainly by fossil fuel fired power plants. Hence, it reduces GHG emissions.
The project activity employs renewable energy source for electricity generation which would otherwise been generated by the conventional fossil fuel based power plants. This will reduce the emission of gaseous, liquid and/or solid effluents/wastes.
