Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (Taqa) is assessing an investment of $1.5 billion to $2.5 billion in the power businesses of Indian billionaire Gautam Adani, a local Indian daily reported.

The Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange-listed company plans to invest in one or multiple Adani Group companies, the Economic Times, a financial daily, reported, citing informed sources.

The move includes taking a near-20 percent stake in Adani Energy Solutions, a power transmission company, through a mixture of primary infusion and the secondary share purchase from promoter family entities.

The stake is likely to cost Rs183.43 billion ($2.21 billion) based on Thursday’s closing at Rs 821.70.

Adani’s power and energy businesses include Adani Energy Solutions, Adani Power and Adani Green Energy.

The founding shareholders hold a 62.52 percent stake in the Adani Group, which includes Gautam Adani’s family trust’s ownership of 53.93 percent.
