With 7,000 megs, India now 4th in global wind power capacity

India Ranks Fourth in Wind Power Capacity

New Delhi, India [] With 7000 MW of renewable energy grid power capacity currently installed in India -- representing 7 percent of the total installed grid power in the country -- and wind power alone contributing 4 percent with an installed capacity of 4225 MW, the country's Minister for Non-Conventional Energy Sources announced that India ranks fourth after Germany, the U.S. and Spain.

The Minister and his ministry, Non-Conventional Energy Sources, won the World Wind Energy Award 2005 for making India one of the leading wind energy countries worldwide. The World Wind Energy Association, with 200 members from all branches of the wind sector in more than 70 countries, is headquartered in Bonn, Germany. Plus, wind capacity is expected to reach 25 percent by 2011-2012. Minister Shri Vilas Muttemwar added that the Government policy measures have played an important role in development, deployment and commercialization of renewable energy technologies and systems.

Efforts are currently directed toward developing indigenous design and manufacturing wind materials components, sub-systems and MW sale wind electric generators. The country's government has been determining the regions most suitable for deployment of wind power systems through wind mapping of the country on a 7 class classification based on different power densities.

Shri Muttemwar congratulated the Indian Renewable Energy Community, particularly industry, for demonstrating Indian capabilities internationally in the development, deployment and commercialization of renewable energy technologies. The Minister and his ministry won the World Wind Energy Award 2005 for achievements in making India one of the leading wind energy countries worldwide. The World Wind Energy Association (WWEA), an international organization headquartered in Bonn, Germany, has 200 members from all branches of the wind sector in more than 70 countries.

The Non-Conventional Energy Minister also released the Indian Renewable Energy Compendium for potential buyers, project developers and importers, which is a compilation of the capabilities of the Indian renewable energy industry. It gives an overview of the renewable energy plan 2012 with potential and cumulative achievements, profiling about 150 renewable energy industries in solar, wind, small hydro, biomass gasification, cogeneration and waste to energy.

The Compendium also contains a list of solar shops at 93 places across the country set up for sales and repairs of renewable energy devices and systems, including information on storage batteries and renewable energy consultants and associations. Listings of international organizations engaged in the development of renewable energy are supplemented with contacts for the institutional framework within India.
