The Green Energy Corridor (GEC) is crucial for India’s energy transition, especially the power sector subtransition. Ladakh became the eighth state to join the Inter-State Transmission System (ISTS GEC-II) with this 13 GW project. The Power Grid Corporation (PGCIL) will be the implementing agency for this particular project.
The project will help in developing long-term energy security, promoting sustainable growth by reducing carbon footprint, contributing to India’s 500 GW non-fossil fuel target for 2030.
How many other RE-rich states will be encouraged to join the ISTS GEC-II?
How will challenges such as complex geography and harsh weather concerns be addressed and managed throughout the project?
