Consolidated profit after tax was up 36 per cent due to savings in finance cost and better performance in Renewables Business, a company statement said.

Tata Power Group's revenue was up 13 per cent at Rs 9,502 crore as compared to Rs 8,428 crore in the year-ago period, it stated.

This is mainly due to expanded operations in Odisha DISCOMs, higher project execution in Solar EPC Business and strong business performance by all other businesses, it said.

Our consolidated financial performance was exceptionally strong on the back of robust underlying business performance,'' Praveer Sinha, CEO & Managing Director, Tata Power said.

Tata Power aims to scale up renewable business towards its 2030 target. Clean energy currently makes up 32 per cent of Tata Power & portfolio which is expected to touch 80 per cent by 2030, Sinha said.

Tata Power is committed and aligned with the government's National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) 2020 and FAME II policy which are focused on transforming the e-mobility space of the country.
