“The exceptional resilience of the Adani Group’s business model has once again been validated by our strong financial performance,” said Gautam Adani, Chairman, Adani Group.
Transmission business revenue growth in the quarter under review was driven by newly commissioned lines, and Distribution revenue increased on account of a consistent uptick in energy demand, the company said in the statement.
It said energy demand (units sold) improved by 11.5 per cent year-on-year in Q4FY23, driven by a rise in the commercial segment and industrial segment demand. Distribution losses in Q4 were at 4.89 per cent, and collection efficiency remained above 100 per cent.
Gautam Adani said, “Adani Transmission is well positioned to deliver exponential growth, and we are working towards fulfilling our nation’s massive electricity needs and strengthening our position as a world-class utility.”
According to the statement, Adani Transmission has pledged to become Net Zero by 2050, limiting global warming to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels through measurable actions, and has become a Signatory to the UN Energy Compact to further SDG 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy).
