India could see around 5MW of new wind capacity installed every year, hitting 89GW by 2020 but it depends on the Government’s policies.

It could help the country attract around $16.5 billion (£10.2bn) of annual investment, create 179,000 jobs and save 179 tons of carbon emissions every year, according to a new report by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), the World Institute of Sustainable Energy (WISE) and the Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association (IWTMA).
