Green Gets Greener: Renault Nissan India Cruises on 85% Eco-Power for Half a Year

Chennai, February 22, 2024 – In a move that’s sparking waves in the automotive world, Renault Nissan Automotive India Pvt Ltd (RNAIPL) is not just talking the green talk, but walking the eco-walk! For six months straight, from July to December 2023, this car manufacturing giant turned its Oragadam plant in Chennai into an almost entirely green-powered wonderland, hitting an incredible 85% usage of green energy on average, and even amping it up to a full 100% in September 2023.

Keerthi Prakash, Managing Director at RNAIPL, couldn’t hide his excitement, saying, “We’re not just building cars; we’re building a better planet! Our leap towards 85% green energy usage in the last half of 2023 is just the start. We’re all in for a green future, aiming for carbon-neutral operations by 2045 and being water positive by 2030. Watch this space – we’re just getting started!”

RNAIPL’s Oragadam plant has been a hub of innovation, not just in car manufacturing but in energy usage too. They’ve been juggling a mix of conventional and green power sources like a pro. From harnessing the power of the sun and wind to tapping into the energy of bagasse/cogen power, they’ve got it all. And with an in-house solar plant already churning out 2.2 MW and plans to expand it to a whopping 14 MW, RNAIPL is clearly not playing around.

Between July and December 2023, the plant was a powerhouse of eco-energy, with wind farms and solar plants working overtime. In September 2023, they even managed a green energy grand slam, running the entire plant on 100% renewable sources. That’s nearly half the power from wind, a third from bagasse/cogen, and the rest from the sun – including a helpful boost from their own solar plant.

But that’s not all. RNAIPL’s green crusade has already saved more than 30,000 tons of CO2 emissions in just six months. And they’re not stopping at energy. With water management strategies like rainwater harvesting and recycling, plus a goal to make more water than they take by 2030, RNAIPL is driving full speed ahead on the sustainability highway. Their commitment to reducing the energy needed to build each car is just the cherry on top of this eco-friendly sundae.

So, as RNAIPL shifts gears towards a more sustainable future, it’s clear they’re not just making cars – they’re making a difference. Stay tuned, because this green journey is just getting started!
