Indian Wind Energy Outlook 2009
“Indian Wind Energy Outlook 2009” was published in September 2009 in New Delhi by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association (IWTMA).
The study examines the potential of wind power in India up to the year 2030 and found that the technology, re-powering, untapped off-shore potential and furthering wind resource assessment could play a key part in the nation’s effort to provide energy to its ever growing demand in an economy which will boom and at the same time combat climate change.
The report explains how wind energy can provide up to 24% of the India’s power needs by 2030 while attracting 475 bn Rs in investment every year and creating 213,000 ‘green collar’ jobs in manufacturing, project development, installation, operation, maintenance, consulting etc. At the same time, it would save a total of 5.5 bn tons of CO2 in that timeframe.
