CLP India is owned by CLP Group, one of the largest investor-owned power businesses in Asia and Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ), one of Canada's leading institutional fund managers. CLP India is one of the largest foreign investors in the Indian power sector with a total committed investment of over INR 16,200 Crores. This investment is spread across a diversified and environment friendly generation portfolio that covers renewable energy, supercritical coal and gas fired generation, amounting to over 3000 MW. CLP India has also recently ventured into power transmission.

CLP entered the Indian market through the acquisition of a 655 MW Combined-Cycle Power Plant (PCCPP) in Paguthan, near Bharuch, Gujarat in 2002. The plant has set several industry benchmarks for its operational excellence and safety. In addition to this, the company operates a 1,320 MW supercritical coal-fired power plant in Jhajjar, Haryana. It is one of the first few power plants in India to operationalize the Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) unit which helps reduce ~ 85% of SO2 emissions. The plant has also won the Frost & Sullivan and TERI Jury Special Mention Award for reducing its specific water consumption to 2.11 m³/ MWh against a statutory limit of 3.5 m³/ MWh.

CLP Group has committed to develop 30% of its generating capacity from non-carbon emitting energy sources such as renewable energy and nuclear power by 2020. CDPQ shares this vision and is committed to expanding clean energy investments in India to support the country’s economic development.

CLP India is one of the largest wind power developers in the country with over 900 MW of wind projects. CLP India has a solar power generation portfolio of close to 250 MW with projects located in the states of Telangana and Maharashtra. The Veltoor Solar Power Project (100MW) which is based in Telangana avoids over 126,000 tons of CO2 emissions. The solar farms acquired in 2018, Gale Solar Power Project (50MW) and Tornado Solar Power Project (20MW) in Maharashtra are also contributing towards the carbon-reduction goals.

In line with CLP India’s vision of investing in a low-carbon and clean energy portfolio, CLP India marked its entry into the power transmission sector in 2019 through a binding agreement with Kalpataru Power Transmission Ltd. and Techno Electric & Engineering Co. Ltd. to purchase key transmission projects. As a first step, Satpura Transco Ltd. (STPL), an intrastate transmission project spread over 240 kilometers in the state of Madhya Pradesh, was successfully transferred to CLP India in 2019.

With this step, CLP India has broadened its portfolio to straddle two out of the three main segments in India’s power value chain.
