As India experiences rapid economic development, energy scarcity is becoming a critical barrier to further sustained growth. Costs of conventional power plants are high. Excessive use of fossil fuels and natural sources of conventional power plants will harm the environment and contribute towards climate change.

Wind resource availability and hence the power generation from wind power projects is variable in nature. Since the share of wind power generation is growing in India, the grid generation issues resulting due to this variable nature of wind power will have to be addressed if the growth is to be sustained.

Earlier researches have shown that forecasts of crop acreage and yields can be made on the basis of weather factors. Where adequate data exist such forecasts may be more accurate than those arrived at by the subjective methods used in the official forecasts of most countries.
