Bengaluru: The renewable energy arm of the Adani Group, Adani Green Energy, has reported over a two-fold jump in the third-quarter profit. The consolidated profit has risen to Rs 1.03 billion in the October-December quarter from Rs 490 million a year ago.
Revenue from power supply increased by around 30% to Rs 12.6 billion. Its total income rose to Rs 22.58 billion from Rs 14.71 billion a year earlier, revealed an exchange filing by the company.
The increasing demand for power supply including the popularity of electric vehicles and appliances is said to be behind this. The government is also backing efforts to reduce carbon emissions and curb air pollution. Analysts observed that a considerable increase in demand came from industrialised states, reported NDTV.
