India's wind power capacity crosses 32 GW | IWTMA

Industry body Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association (IWTMA) said the wind power generation capacity in the country has crossed the 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, Sarvesh Kumar, Chairman, IWTMA said, elaborating that the latest data indicate that country's wind power generation capacity is over 32 GW after addition of 5.4 GW in last fiscal.

The government has decided to go through the bidding route as the first ever auction of wind power projects in February 2017, where power tariffs dropped to all-time low of Rs 3.46 per unit. Wind power capacity of 1 GW was auctioned by the Solar Energy Corporation of India in February.

Globally, India is at the fourth position after China, the US and Germany, in terms of wind capacity installation.
