How Caffarel is fighting climate change with Aither?
Caffarel decided to compensate the emissions related to its supply of natural gas through investing in this project based in India. The project consists in commissioning and operating of a new, green field 469 MW Natural Gas fired, gas turbine based combined cycle power plant. The proposed project activity is being installed by GVK Gautami Power Ltd. (GPL) at Industrial Development Area, Peddapuram, near Samalkot in East Godavari district, Andhra Pradesh, India. The project activity uses relatively cleaner fuel, natural gas instead of most common fuel in the grid i.e. coal for power generation. Thus, the project activity will avoid significant emission compared to the usual practice in coal dominated Indian power sector.
