Bosch Limited, a pioneering technology and services supplier in multiple areas in India, has reportedly collaborated with Amp Energy India, one of the fastest-growing integrated renewable energy power producers in India. The alliance would observe Amp Energy facilitating the former for its solar energy requirements and projects.
The capacity of the solar project is 30 MW and would be offered from AMP Energy India’s open access utility in Mallat Village, Raichur district, Karnataka. This is knowingly Amp’s 3rd open access project in the state.
The solar open access unit commissioned this month will produce about 43MUs of green energy per year for Bosch Limited and will fulfill around 40% of their energy consumption.
This project will also help solar power to energize 3 of Bosch’s plants/facilities in and around Bangalore. Moreover, by swapping to solar power, Bosch will also help reduce about 31,000 tons of CO2 per year.
Pinaki Bhattacharyya, MD and CEO, Amp Energy India, said that India had witnessed major adoption of solar energy by top companies over the last few years, especially after challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
He added that Amp Energy is grateful for the Bosch team’s continuous support to the firm since the beginning.
The firm believes that with this partnership, Bosch will set up new levels for other businesses to switch to clean energy for growth in the country and achieve their RE100 targets.
Soumitra Bhattacharya, Managing Director, Bosch Limited & Regional President, Bosch Group in India, quoted that India is a key market for the company. It would like to help the country reach its true potential.
Soumitra also mentioned that the firm is pleased to have collaborated with Amp Energy for this project, which has promptly helped it achieve its sustainability goals.
Amp Energy India, with its unique range of projects, has already developed large open access projects, including some revolutionary projects such as the First project of captive solar open access in Uttar Pradesh (42MW), the Largest Solar Open Access Project in Maharashtra (30MW), and its second open-access project in Maharashtra (13.5MW).
