Indian wind energy is at par with even developed countries
India’s power deficit is running at 8-10 per cent in recent times. What role can renewable energy generation play in the given circumstances?
The total commissioning is around 2,50,000 mw while the deficit is around 20,000 mw. The contribution from the renewable sector is 5,000 mw per year. Around 25 to 30 per cent of the deficit can be address by the renewable sector.
India has the third largest wind energy market in the world, with an estimated wind potential of 100 GW onshore.
