The wholly owned subsidiary is tasked with developing 30 gigawatts to 40 GW of solar, wind and power storage capacity, up to 1.2 million tons per year of clean hydrogen/ammonia, and around 25,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging points in Asia-Pacific by 2030. In an interview with Energy Intelligence, Gentari’s CEO Sushil Purohit explains how the company aims to achieve its ambitious targets. An edited transcript follows.
