It targets to spend $3 billion in the renewable sector over the next three fiscals beginning July this year.

IFC has invested $10 million in Azure. Earlier, it has invested in Chennai-based Auro Mira Energy Company Private Ltd (AME) and Bhilwara Energy Ltd.

It also has investments in China in Asia, besides Bulgaria, Chile, Turkey, and Philippines in other geographies.
