Industries where Adani cashes in

Although it has been 25 years of continuous upward journey for the conglomerate, the chairman wealth has rocketed in the past year. Adani have a 62% interest in the Ports & SEZ business, and 75% stake in the rest—Adani Enterprises, Adani Power, Adani Transmissions and Adani Gas.

Shares of major has more than doubled since the start of the year, and Adani Power has quadrupled. Adani Green has become one the most valuable company in the country.

There are concerns about whether this meteoric success has legs to stand on or not. Ratings agency Fitch warned in August that Adani’s diversification bid came with a caveat: it is “very excessive” and on the brink of default, and while new business ventures are flush with cash, there are concerns about executive oversight.

The political goodwill Adani has amassed has helped it take advantage of lax regulations—think of its forays into airports that had nothing to do with Adani—but the debt-ridden business can collapse in on themselves in a long period of time. Even Adani’s golden green business that attracts domestic and foreign investors has yet to register a profit.

Adani’s $1 trillion green energy ambition

Having developed most of its wealth from fossil fuels and mining, the Adani Group is looking to invest more $150 billion across green energy, data centers, airports and healthcare as it harbors dreams of joining the big leagues of over $1 trillion companies. Currently, the cohort includes 5 US tech giants and Saudi Aramco-that all.

The group that got it early success in coal has seen success in green spaces already. Therefore, a large part of this funding corpus has been allocated for green hydrogen power and green energy at $50-70 billion and $23 billion respectively.

Its green efforts are spread all over the world. To name a few:

Adani’s recent ascent is courtesy Indian stock markets outperformed Street Wall. Of course, it helps that Amazon poor holiday forecast crippling Bezos’ fortune. But there is a stronger reason that helped the 60-year-old Indian tycoon to rise from 14th position which it holds at the beginning of 2022: a growing conglomerate whose market share has grown 16 times in seven years to reach $220 billion, and more targeted, a string of profitable green investment.

Person of interest: another Indian mega-billionaire, Mukesh Ambani

Adani isn’t the only Indian businessman obsessed with all things green energy and profit. he locked in a renewable race with Mukesh Ambani of Reliance Industries who, with an estimated net worth of $89 billion, came in eighth place Forbes real-time billionaire index.

Reliance has been trying to switch to green hydrogen since before Adani stepped into the ring but the latter has been quick to catch up. Both look at the various business cases for meeting green energy needs including the growing demand for renewable and supportive government policies in India and compliance with ESG (environmental, social and governance) factors.

But for all their green impulses, both businessmen does not release coal recently.
