Industry body Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association (IWTMA) on Tuesday said the wind power generation capacity in the country has crossed 32 GW mark.

However, according to the Central Electricity Authority’s (CEA) monthly report for March 2017, the installed wind power generation capacity is around 28.7 GW, lower than the ITWMA estimates.

India’s installed wind power generation capacity has crossed 32 GW so far and there should be at least 6 GW of capacity addition every year to meet the target of having 60 GW by 2022, IWTMA Chairman Sarvesh Kumar said on the sidelines of Windergy India 2017 conference here.
