India's Vedanta Aluminium tops industrial purchase of renewable energy in 2021

Indian producer Vedanta Aluminium was the largest industrial consumer of renewable energy (RE) in 2021 via procurement on India’s power exchanges, as part of its transition to low-carbon operations, the company said on Thursday January 13.

The company announced it had procured nearly 2 billion units of RE power in 2021 for consumption at its aluminium smelter in Jharsuguda, Odisha, via the Indian Energy Exchange (IEX) and Power Exchange India Ltd (PXIL).
The purchases have reduced its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity at the plant by more than 1,540 kilo tonnes of CO2 equivalent (KtCO2e) in the year.
