The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has notified National Offshore Wind Energy Policy in October, 2015 for development of offshore wind energy projects for production of electrical power within the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of the country.

Ministry, in consultation with National Institute of Wind Energy Chennai, has prepared a draft certification scheme incorporating various guidelines issued by MNRE and titled under "Indian Wind Turbine Certification Scheme (IWTCS)".

As the offshore wind power generation spreads to more countries, standardisation can help to overcome market barriers and spur further deployment. Initial experience in the sector has come mostly from mature energy markets, such as Denmark, Germany and the United Kingdom.

Repowering Policy to promote optimum utilization of wind energy resources by creating facilitative framework for repowering.

The International Energy Agency(IEA) released its Offshore Energy Outlook report, looking at all aspects of offshore energy production for the next 20 years.

The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) released its Global Wind Report: Annual Market Update, showing a maturing industry successfully competing in the marketplace, even against heavily subsidized traditional power generation technologies.

Following a decade of unprecedented investment, China now has the world's largest installed base of wind power capacity. Yet, despite siting most wind farms in the wind-rich Northern and Western provinces, electricity generation from Chinese wind farms has not reached the performance benchmarks of the United States and many other advanced economies. This has resulted in lower environmental, economic, and health benefits than anticipated. We develop a framework to explain the performance of the Chinese and US wind sectors, accounting for a comprehensive set of driving factors.
