Chennai : The 2011 edition of the biennial Wind Power India conference is slated to kick off on April 7, a senior functionary of the Wind Institute of Sustainable Energy (WISE) said today.

Various deliberations on the present wind power scenario and a methodology for taking the industry forward with international participation will be discussed during the three-day event, WISE Founder-Director General and Wind Power India 2011 Executive Co-Chairperson G M Pillai told reporters here.

Over 100 foreign delegates are expected to take part in the event, which has been designed to have more “panel discussions” on topics related to wind power.

Organising Committee Chairman V Subramanian said India had a huge potential for wind energy generation and aims to produce 64,000 MW by 2020, compared to 13,000 MW at present.

“There are many areas still untapped (in India) and the deliberations also include the critical issues and challenges related to the role of wind power…,” he said.

Stating that there have to be some changes on government policies, he said discussions with government officials would also centre on how they can be modified to encourage more private sector participation.

Presentation of the Wind India Awards, recognising contributions made by the Indian wind industry in 17 categories, is also being planned during the conference, he added.

Members of the Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers” Association and Global Wind Energy Council will also participate in the conference, to be held at the Chennai Trade Centre.
