Billionaire Gautam Adani wants his conglomerate to be a world leader in green data storage, with data centers run entirely on clean power playing a key part in his ambition to recast an empire built largely on coal mining and trading into a renewable energy giant. 

“It is inevitable that massive data center infrastructure will become the largest energy-consuming industry to ever exist,” Adani, chairman of Adani Group and Asia’s second-richest person, said at the Bloomberg India Economic Forum on Thursday. As India exponentially expands its clean energy capacity at one of the lowest costs, it “will make us the greenest choice to warehouse not just India’s but perhaps much of the world’s data.”
