Is Wind Power Really This Cheap? And Are Indian Wind OEMs Really that Innocent?

Is Wind Power Really This Cheap? And Are Indian Wind OEMs Really that Innocent?

OK, we all heard the latest on wind power – Rs 3.46/kWh was the tariff arrived at in the competitive bidding held by SECI. Expectedly, there are a number of industry honchos who are not convinced that Rs 3.46/kWh is a sustainable tariff. Of course, the loudest of them all is the IWTMA (Indian Wind […]

What cost benefits do solar-wind hybrid systems bring along with it?

It is common wisdom that the wind blows most when there is no sun, and the sun shines best when there is no wind. OK, that’s putting rather poetically, and possibly not very accurately – essentially, wind power plants generate the most during evenings and nights and solar power plants of course generate the most […]

300 GW – India’s Onshore Wind Power Potential. Aha, finally.

Until a few years back, when someone asked me about the total potential of India’s wind power, I had to give two answers: One was the official estimate and another, what I felt was the estimate based on improved turbine heights and turbine technology. The two were vastly different. The official estimate until a couple […]

Offshore Wind to Blow in India Soon? Hey, Hold Your Bets!

Ever since I started my journey in the Indian renewable energy sector 8 years back, I have been hearing central and state governments blowing hot and cold on offshore wind energy.

Backing Down Wind Mills in Tamil Nadu – There are two sides to every coin

Read an interesting article in The Economic Times today how there is a tussle between wind power generators and private conventional power generators, with TANGEDCO and MNRE being the other actors in the drama. The script goes like this: MNRE would like wind generation to have “must run” status, meaning they should be backed down as […]
