RNAIPL continues its upward trajectory in green energy usage for operations

Kolkata, Feb 22 (UNI) Taking ahead its commitment to achieving carbon-neutral operations by 2045, Renault Nissan Automotive India Pvt Ltd (RNAIPL), the automotive manufacturer located in Oragadam, Chennai, has announced that it has predominantly used green power for its operations during the second half of 2023.
On average, the plant utilized more than 85 pc of green energy every month between July and December 2023, with 100 pc of green energy utilization in September 2023. RNAIPL uses a combination of in-house and externally sourced green energy to produce cars.
“RNAIPL is committed to reducing the environmental impact of our operations and last year, we announced our comprehensive plan for achieving carbon-neutral operations by the year 2045 and becoming water-positive by the year 2030. Our latest green energy milestone, with an average use of 85percent green energy in the second half of 2023, demonstrates our unwavering dedication to sustainability. We are committed to further enhancing our environmental stewardship and contributing to a more sustainable future.” company MD said in a statement on Thursday.
RNAIPL uses a three-pillar approach as part of its roadmap to carbon neutrality. These pillars are increasing the share of green energy in the overall mix, aggressively improving efficiencies in energy usage and continuous adoption of energy-efficient technology at its Oragadam plant.
The energy portfolio includes a mix of conventional power supplied by the government and various green power sources such as solar power, wind power, and bagasse/cogen power. RNAIPL has plans to transition to 100 percent consistent renewable energy usage by 2045.
It has an in-house solar plant with a capacity of 2.2 MW, which feeds directly into the plant’s power grid, with additional plans to expand capacity to up to 14 MW in the next few years. Additionally, other green power is sourced from external suppliers located in Tamil Nadu. Wind power is sourced from wind farms in Tirunelveli/ Coimbatore, a geographical area that is naturally well-placed to harness wind power.
