It gives us access into a very deep and liquid pool of global investors -- both emerging markets as well as ESG investors -- which we think is very important for us to tap into and access for future and long-term growth in our sector," said Sumant Sinha, chairman and managing director of ReNew Power in a CNBC-TV18 interview. Sinha said the company is primarily focused on the Indian market at this time.
Reportedly, around $700 million of gross proceeds from the listing will accrue to the company, which will be used to set up new power production facilities.
ReNew’s current commissioned capacity as of March 31, 2021 represents about 1.4% of India’s total installed capacity and avoids 0.5% of India’s carbon emissions annually.
