PROGRAMME>>>Wind Power Programme

 

There is an estimated Gross Potential of 45,000 MW & Technical Potential of 13,000 MW in India


Considerable progress has been made in harnessing the large wind power potential available in the country. Most of the projects have been s tarred in Coastal areas of Tamilnadu and Hilly Areas of Maharashtra. During the last five years Rajasthan has emerged as the favorite destination for private sector Wind Mills due to friendly renewable energy policy and good wind potential.


New initiatives have been taken in Jharkhand to assess the Wind Quality with the objective of producing electricity from Wind. Two High Masts, with the help of Center for Wind Energy Technology, Chennai, have been erected at Netarhat and Latehar to monitor and assess the wind speed and quality. The data will be available by October,2005 to indicate whether Wind Mills can be installed at these locations.


Large private sector corporations, public sector units and power utilities are being motivated to set up wind power projects.

 

Wind resource Map is given below (w/m2 = Watt per square meter):
