The Navy, as a self-driven and environmentally responsible force, has always been committed to environmental protection and green initiatives. As guardian of the seas, the Navy employs a number of ships, submarines, and aircraft that have high energy intensity, thus increased energy efficiency is paramount in every operation and process the Navy undertakes.
IN has commissioned solar power with a cumulative capacity of 15.87MW which is in line with the Navy’s objective of fulfilling Govt of India’s ‘Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM)’ mission.
