    Promoter – Financial Intermediary




    Construction of a 100 MW-AC photovoltaic (PV) plant promoted by Shapoorji Pallonji Infrastructure Company Private Limited in Mahbubnagar, Telangana.


    The project is in line with the EU policy in the area of climate change, since it would contribute to the development of renewable energy and the associated avoidance of greenhouse gas emissions. It will support the development of a sustainable and secure supply of energy that is necessary for the long-term economic growth and development of India. It will also bring economic benefits to the region through the production of energy from renewable resources, the displacement of imported fuel costs, the expanded use of domestic resources and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and other airborne pollutants. It supports the EU-India strategic partnership, which foresees, inter alia, cooperation in curbing climate change. Similarly, this is in line with the Indian National Action Plan on climate change mitigation.

    Environmental aspects

    The project, if located in the EU, would fall under Annex II of the environmental impact assessment (EIA) directive leaving to the competent authority the decision as to whether an EIA is required or not. According to the applicable Indian law, PV plants do not require an EIA. Under the conditions of the related framework loan, the final beneficiary is required to carry out an environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) study for the project. Details of the project's authorization process, ESIA and implementation of the environmental and social management plan (ESMP) will be analysed during appraisal.


    The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that implementation of the project is done in accordance with the Bank's guide to procurement.
