    Speaking on the recent sharp rise in the Company's portfolio, Sumant Sinha, Chairman and CEO, ReNew, said, "The clean energy transition in India must happen at an increasingly rapid pace to meet—and green—the expanding energy requirements of the country, and to strengthen its longer-term energy security.

    Given the recent electricity shortages and blackouts, customers are even more keen to sign new power agreements to ensure future supply. ReNew will be at the heart of this growth in clean energy that will support India's crucial fight against climate change," Sumant added.
