WEBINAR: Opportunities in Indian Wind energy sector

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

India is the 5th largest annual wind power market in the world, and provides great business opportunities for both domestic and foreign investors. The Indian Wind energy sector has grown to a scale of 20 GW accounting to over 65% of total installed renewable energy capacity in the country. Wind energy accounts for 8.5% of India’s total installed power capacity, and it generates 1.6% of the country’s power.

State-run Centre for Wind energy Technology (CWET) has estimated India’s wind power potential as 102,778 MW at 80 meters hub height. Over 95% of the nation’s wind energy development to date is concentrated in five states in southern and western India – Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, and Gujarat.
The government is launching its first Wind energy mission, the ‘National Wind Energy Mission’ (NWEM) in mid 2014 to give a boost to the wind sector including incentives to invest, expedite land clearances and regulate tariffs. Also, the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) is making efforts to set up a ‘National Offshore Wind Energy Agency’ to explore wind generation potential in the offshore areas.

Attend the webinar and learn about:

  • Wind Potential of India
  • Policies being facilitated by the Central and State Government
  • Indian Wind Market Growth
  • Opportunities & Challenges

The webinar will also include presentations from an industry champion and the Senior Counsellor of CII- GBC, an industry led and industry managed organization providing advisory services to over 7100 members in India. They will speak on key considerations on introducing your services or technology to the Indian market.
