About JSW Energy
True to JSW values, JSW Energy believes in the efficient utilization of all available resources. Our goal is to become a leading full-service integrated power company in the Indian power sector with a presence across the value chain.
The company was one of the earliest private entrants into the power sector after the liberalisation in the 1990’s. By managing our operations, enhancing social and economic benefits, minimizing environmental impact and employing cutting age innovation, JSW Energy has consolidated its place at the top of the ranks.
One of India’s premier integrated power companies, JSW Energy produces 3,140MW of power, with a capacity of another 8,630MW under implementation and development. We envision achieving 11,770MW in power generation. With transparent operations, stringent corporate governance norms and a clear vision JSW Energy is setting benchmarks in the power sector.
The Company’s presence extends across several Indian states and includes stakes in natural resource companies in South Africa. JSW Energy is a full-spectrum integrated power Company with presence across the power value chain.
The ability to leverage opportunities, technologies and competencies to set up greenfield projects rapidly and efficiently, makes JSW unique. This allows us to aggressively mine new opportunities for growth.
The company’s strategic approach to expansion, ensuring diversity in geographic locations, fuel sources and power off-take arrangements, helps de-risk the business. During the last 4 years JSW Energy has enhanced the power generation capacity from 260MW to 3140MW.
Power generation: Incorporated in 1994, JSW Energy began commercial operations in 2000, with the commissioning of its first 260MW thermal power plant at Vijayanagar, Karnataka. Since then, the Company has grown rapidly in terms of both size and scope.
The Vijayanagar plant produces 860MW of power. The company have set up a 1,200MW imported coal-based thermal plant in Ratnagiri, Maharashtra. Our wholly owned subsidiary, Raj WestPower Ltd operates the 1,080MW lignite-based thermal power plant in Barmer, Rajasthan. The company has also identified projects which are under implementation and development phase in Himachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Rajasthan.
JSW Energy is one of the most efficient power generation companies in India. Our plants are the industry benchmark for the high plant load factor achieved, which is a measure of efficient capacity utilisation. The Vijayanagar plant has been awarded the Best Operating Power Plant by the Ministry of Power in 2012 for the fifth consecutive year. Our competitiveness is reflected in our high rate of returns and the profitability of our commercial operations.
