Soon after a bankruptcy filing by the US-based developer, several Indian companies were reported to have expressed interest in acquiring SunEdison India’s projects.
SunEdison India already operates 700 MW of renewable energy capacity, mostly in the form of solar power projects, with an additional 1.7 GW under development. The company sold 425 MW of solar projects in India to its yieldco TerraForm Global for $231m in 2015.
The company also owns wind energy projects, some of which it acquired last year from Fersa Energías Renovables.
Around 1,000 MW of solar capacity is being developed or secured by SunEdison in competitive auctions, which includes the 500 MW project SunEdison won in the Andhra Pradesh auction.
The project was among the most economical projects in India, in terms of tariff.
Apart from Adani Green Energy, Tata Power Renewable Energy is also believed to have expressed interest in acquiring SunEdison’s assets.
