NEW DELHI: Tata Power today said its 50.4 MW wind energy plant in Gujarat has been registered under the United Nations Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), making it the company’s third project to be part of this framework.

Located in Samana, the project will come under Clean Development Mechanism of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

“Samana wind plant is Tata Power’s third CDM registered project, with the 50.4 MW wind project at Khandke, Maharashtra & 25 MW solar project at Mithapur, Gujarat registered in June 2010 and January 2013 respectively,” the firm said in a statement.

The Samana project would help in reducing an annual average of 96,821 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent.

Another wind project is in advanced stages of CDM registration, it added.

An instrument established under the Kyoto Protocol for achieving sustainable development, CDM would enable developing countries to attract investments in clean energy technology, the statement said.

At present, Tata Power has 376 MW wind and 28 MW solar energy generation capacities.
