Tamil Nadu could deliver 25 GW of new wind capacity, attract billions of dollars of investment, and generate over 100,000 jobs in the best-case scenarios of GWEC’s new roadmap for the state, which is developed in partnership with the SED Fund and Deloitte.

Decarbonizing the global energy matrix through investments in renewable energy (RE) is considered a pathway to mitigate the effects of global climate change. Auctions have become an increasingly popular policy instrument for this purpose.

The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) has released a Summary for Policymakers at COP27 on the socioeconomic and environmental opportunities attached to wind energy in developing economies.

India has the fourth largest installed capacity of wind energy in the world, with the addition of 41 GW as of June 2022. However, this figure is quite low when consider India’s potential of 695.5 GW at 120 m hub height and 302 GW at 100 m hub height.

Achieving global goals for access to energy and mitigation of climate change will require a quadrupling of present levels of solar photovoltaic (PV), a multiplication by nine of the wind power generation and a doubling of the geothermal power generation in the developing world by 2025. It represents around 50, 270 and 8 gigawatts.

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy on 17th October 2022, notified the Draft policy for repowering of the wind power projects. The Ministry had issued ‘Policy for Repowering of the Wind Power Projects’ on 5th August 2016 in order to create a facilitative framework for repowering.

Rapid growth in onshore and offshore wind capacity is generating huge demand for skilled workforce, a new report reveals.

The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) has published Accelerating Onshore Wind Capacity Addition in India to Achieve the 2030 Target, an analysis of India’s current auctions regime, industry perspectives on the policy recommendations to restore wind growth and socioeconomic opportunities that lay ahead.

The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and MEC Intelligence (MEC+) have launched “Renewing wind growth to power the energy transition: India Wind Energy Market Outlook 2026”. This third annual edition looking at the wind energy outlook in India highlights wind energy’s critical link to India’s green energy transition.

The Standing Committee on Energy, present this Twenty-Seventh Report of the Committee on ‘Evaluation of Wind Energy in India’ pertaining to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy.
