Ranked 4th in the world for wind power installed capacity, India is a major player in the global wind energy market. However, the potential of wind energy is far from exhausted. Exchange your ideas in order to exhaust the wind energy.
As of 31st July 2018, India had installed 34.3 GW of wind power with 7.5 GW under implementation. The government has planned to bid out the balance capacity by March 2020, providing a window of two years for the installation of the wind power projects. The present installed capacity puts India in the 4th spot in wind power globally, only behind China, the USA and Germany. In the long-term, our goal is to install 140 GW of wind power, including 30 GW of offshore wind power, up to 2030.
The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy is also maintaining a detailed quality check in the form of RLMM (Revised List of Models and Manufacturers). With 70-80 per cent indigenization of the wind turbines, the Indian wind story is also a great example of 'Make in India'.
India seeks collaboration and cooperation from various research and development institutions, leading technology providers, financial institutions and other institutions and companies for the development of the wind power sector.
