    Environmental aspects

    The project, if located in the EU, would fall under Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2014/52/EU amending the EIA Directive 2011/92/EU leaving to the competent authority the decision as to whether an EIA is required or not. According to the applicable Indian law, PV power projects 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. A comprehensive ESIA study for the project including an Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP) has been produced by an external consultant. It concludes that the project has no significant negative environmental and social impacts after mitigation. There is no resettlement envisaged for the project.


    The promoter has to ensure that the implementation of the project is done in accordance with EIB's Guide to Procurement.
