The Silicon Review
May, 2019


Adani Enterprises Limited is the flagship entity of the Adani Group, one of India’s largest business conglomerates. The $11bn Group enjoys significant interests across resources (coal mining and integrated coal management), logistics (ports and logistics, shipping and rail), energy (power generation and transmission) and ancillary industries. Through these businesses, the Adani Group is integrated into the core of the world’s largest democracy, touching millions of lives.

Adani Enterprises is one of the fastest growing diversified conglomerates with business interests across – Integrated Coal Management and mining, solar cells and module manufacturing, agri-storage infrastructure and services as well as edible oils and food products.

This business mix - business-to-business and business-to-consumer – is directed at enhancing access to basic services (electricity through timely coal availability), creating a less polluted world, delivering quality food grain and providing healthy cooking media. In doing so, the company contributes to creating a better world.

Here is a look at the expansive business interests of Adani Enterprises


It is well established that the average electricity consumption of people in India is abysmally low as compared to our global peers.  With increasing urbanization and changing lifestyle, the demand for electricity is likely to only increase in the future. According to industry projections, power demand in India is likely to touch 1600 billion units by 2022 and spiral up to 2100 billion units over the next decade. This will be catered to by a variety of energy sources, including coal.

Adani Enterprises Limited is committed to bridging the gap between demand and supply of coal through a combination of imports and responsible mining. Besides contributing to the domestic coal production with the help of environment-friendly practices, we have also developed a strong supplier base in South Africa, Australia, USA, and Russia among other coal-rich geographies.

In just about two years after setting up our mining business unit, we pioneered the Mine Developer and Operator (MDO) model in 2009 starting with the Parsa East and KantaBasan Coal Blocks. This project from planning to production was done in a record time of 3.5 years, which is a benchmark for the coal mining industry in India. In March 2013, we successfully dispatched the first rake of coal to a state-owned power generation utility of Rajasthan.

Our vision of achieving energy security for the nation is gradually transforming lives across the nooks and corners of the country.  The project of Parsa East &KantaBasan, for instance, has employed more than 400 tribal people. A school has been started to impart quality education to tribal children. Free medical assistance and health care are now available at their doorstep. Vocational training to women is making them self-sufficient and financially independent. The company has also established a football academy at Ambikapur to nurture and nourish the aspirations of the tribal youth.
