Ashok Agarwal, CEO, Essel Infraprojects, said, “We are glad to announce our alliance with Schneider, FeConGmBH and Passavant Energy and Environment GmbH. We believe that this will put us on the fast track in delivering on our commitment to produce 12500 MW of solar energy and 4000 MW of wind energy in India in the coming year as also in establishing Essel as a major player in the 7.5 billion Euros market for waste water management in India. Our MoU with German partners will also provide a fillip to the ‘Make in India’ movement envisaged by our Prime Minister and will put Essel at the forefront in realising his vision for Smart Cities in India.”

Essel also looks forward to export the surplus renewable energy as the tie-up shapes up.
