Tata Motors

Tata Motors Limited, India’s largest automobile company, has set itself the goal of using entirely renewable energy – including a switch to 100% renewable electricity for its own operations.

The renewable energy the company used during the financial year 2014-15 accounted for around 5% of its total energy consumption, and resulted in the avoidance of over 32,000 tCO2e.

Its consumption of renewable energy is mainly from wind power – ‘captive wind power’ plant and third party wind power purchase, plus wind energy via the grid. Tata Motors also has 6MW off-grid generation of solar energy at its Pune, Dharwad and Sanand plants.

Arvind Bodhankar, Global Head – Health, Safety, Environment and Chief Sustainability Officer, Tata Motors Limited, said: “The RE100 campaign offers a powerful network to support and celebrate businesses that are increasing their use of renewable power.

“We expect RE100 to address regulatory barriers and help to develop transparent reporting mechanisms, in addition to offering technical help and providing guidance on selecting and implementing the best approach to utilizing renewable power.

“The RE100 movement is giving a clear signal that the transition to renewable energy is achievable. The world's leading sustainable companies are getting prepared for this major change by committing to go for renewable electricity and Tata Motors is proud to join such an initiative.”
