The recently announced results of the Global Wind Power Installed Capacity Index ranked India 4th with a cumulative installed wind power generation capacity of 25,088 MW. This is testimonial of the government of India’s thrust on the development of renewable sources of energy. The 1000 MW tender floated by state-run Solar Energy Corp. of India (SECI) has witnessed high interest among developers and WTG manufacturers. The tender is expected to bring wind energy cost down thereby making wind the most competitive source of power. This would also expand the market by opening up of RPO demand from non-wind states. Upfront signing of 25 years PPAs make it ideal for IPPs, banks and developers.
