Top five states in India with highest wind electricity generation

India is blessed with various renewable energy sources. Wind energy is a prominent renewable energy source in India. Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has already estimated 103 GW* of wind energy potential. Government of India is looking at renewable energy as a way to achieve energy security and to curb greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions happening from the electricity sector. Therefore, renewable energy development is high on government agenda. Recently, India set 60 GW of wind capacity addition target40

Climate Change: How Can Wind Energy Help?

Wind energy plays an important role in addressing climate change on a global level. Many countries around the world have been working hard to reduce their carbon emissions during the last decades. Some of the world’s leading markets in the US, Denmark, Australia and the UK recognized the power of clean energy and electricity to reduce carbon pollution. By increasing the proportion of electricity generated from wind energy we can lower greenhouse gas emissions and reduce our dependency on fossil40

Accelerated depreciation (AD) scheme to continue for wind energy projects in India

With a government change at the centre in India, the accelerated depreciation (AD) scheme has been extended for wind projects in India. The scheme was shelved by the earlier government. “To encourage the wind energy programme, there is an accelerated depreciation. There was confusion whether we have extended it or not. Members wanted it to be extended. I am, therefore, continuing with that accelerated depreciation,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitley informed the Lok Sabha while replying to a debate on the40

NAL promotes 500W wind-solar hybrid system

National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL) has brought out a 500W wind-solar hybrid system that is capable of providing power in standalone situations such as borewells, pumps and other non heavy applications. The system is developed keeping in mind remote areas of the country, reported Express. Aparna Renewable Energy Source (ARES), a private company also participated in the research. “The wind turbines from abroad are efficient only at higher speeds, which rarely occur in India. We developed the hybrid system at the40

Airborne Wind Turbines may have potential to fuel future energy supply, finds study

Airborne wind turbines that are not on the ground and keep hovering high in the air and can be tied to the ground, just like kites may lead the way for future energy supplies. The findings were part of a recent wind availability study by the University of Delaware. The research published in Renewable Energy displays that enough areas are available that maybe used by airborne turbines to produce several terawatts of electric power annually. “These areas, which we call40
