Solar: Azure way

History:
In 2009, Azure Power's 2 MW Punjab facility was India's first utility-scale solar power plant. In Awan, Punjab, the project provides electricity to 32 villages with a population of over 20,000 people. Azure Power has received funding from Foundation Capital, Helion Ventures, IFC, and the German development bank DEG. Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (also known as CDPQ) is the company's largest shareholder, owning more than half of the outstanding shares. Azure Power now has a total capacity of over 7 GW and is one of India's largest developers and operators of utility scale solar assets. As part of World Finance Magazine's Sustainability Awards 2020, Azure Power was named the Most Sustainable Company in the Solar Energy Industry in 2020. Sustainalytics ranked the company as the 10th best renewable energy company for sustainability, or in the top 16th percentile of all global renewable power producers. Furthermore, Azure Power was ranked 21st, or in the top 5%, of the 469 global utilities covered by Sustainalytics.

Azure Power IPO offering:
On October 12, 2016, Azure Power launched an Initial Public Offering (IPO), allowing Indian energy assets to be listed for the first time on the New York Stock Exchange. Azure Power is also the first renewable energy company to go public in the United States since August 2015. Azure Power raised $161 million in its pre-IPO, initial public offering, and concurrent private placement. The vast majority of the funds were used to continue the development of solar power plants in India.

Green Bond
Azure Power issued its first green bond offering in August 2017, with a maturity date of 2022. The bond was certified as green by the Climate Bonds Initiative and was the first solar green bond offered by a company with only solar power assets outside of India. In 2019, the company issued a USD$350 green bond offering.
