Renewable Energy projects in India
Access to Sustainable, Affordable Energy
Poverty and access to affordable energy are inextricably linked. Globally over 1.3 billion people are without access to electricity and 2.7 billion people are without clean cooking facilities. More than 350 million people in India are still without access to electricity. Providing sustainable and affordable options will help some of the most marginalised lift themselves out of poverty whilst preventing environmental damage from less sustainable energy sources.
In 2008, The Converging World used its first donations to install a wind farm in Tamil Nadu, South India.
Today, TCW owns and operates 4.2MW of wind farms generating ~8,000MWh of green power every year, equivalent to powering 4,500 Indian homes.
This energy is supplied locally, including to a hospital, aiding in building climate resilient public health systems in vulnerable regions.
