The biomass power business focuses primarily on the development and operation of multi-fuel biomass-based power plants that generate electricity from agri - residues and waste from agriculture crops, forestry and related industries, such as rice, mustard and soya bean husks, straw, cotton and maize stalks, coconut and ground nut shells, wood chips, poultry litter, and bagasse.
OGPL targets regions with sufficient availability of
biomass, favorable incentives for renewable energy companies,
attractive tariff structures and a shortage of electricity
supply. The company currently operates Eleven biomass plants
and one biogas plant with an aggregate installed capacity
of 106 MW in Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Telangana and Madhya Pradesh.
Biomass power projects have been committed and are in
development stages in the states of Gujarat, Punjab
