India could reach 89 gw wind capacity by 2020: GWEC

By 2020, India could have 89 gw of installed wind capacity up from 18 gw at present, helping to fight a growing power shortage in the country, an industry outlook report said recently.

Compiled by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), the World Institute of Sustainable Energy (WISE) and the Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association (IWTMA), India could see around 5 gw new wind capacity installed every year to 2020, attracting around $16.5 billion of annual investment.

The report shows that India’s potential for wind power development reaches up to 400 gw, and more if the potential of offshore wind and repowering are fully exploited. By 2030, installed capacity could reach as much as 191 gw, the report added, making a valuable contribution to India’s power generation portfolio.

But GWEC called for government to take action to encourage activity in the sector.
