Wind Vision India 2032 : a multi stakeholder perspective
The Government of India (GoI) has started many ambitious initiatives, including 24x7 Power for All, Make-in-India, Digital India and 100 Smart Cities, besides boosting overall infrastructure development. One of the initiatives is 175 GW of RE by 2022, including 100 GW of solar and 60 GW of wind capacity. Further, India aims to reduce emissions intensity of its GDP by 33%–35% by 2030 compared to 2005 levels, and generate 40% of the electricity through non-fossil fuel sources as part of its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). The purpose of “Wind Vision 2032” is to recommend alternate development strategies to policy makers, planners and implementing agencies to boost investments in the sector. The ‘Wind Vision 2032’ has been envisaged after analyzing key aspects such as grid integration, financing and incentives, power procurement, project development and policy and regulatory support.
