A few months back, I had written about the status of offshore wind in India ( see: ) where I had mentioned that very little work had taken place in this area, to the extent that we do not even know the exact potential for offshore wind in India.

A start finally appears to have been made in figuring out what India could do in the offshore wind domain. A recent report from Indian Express ( ) states, “India is exploring the potential for offshore wind power generation. Deepak Gupta, secretary, ministry of new and renewable energy, told that a study is being undertaken with the help of Chennai-based Centre for Wind Energy Technology (C-WET) to ascertain the feasibility of setting up wind farms in India’s offshore areas.”We expect to complete the study in 2-3 years,” he said.”

In the last couple of weeks alone, there were a flurry of announcements on offshore wind, from diverse parts of the world:

South coast of UK

Statoil pins its hopes on offshore wind

Offshore Wind Power Poised for Major Growth in U.S.

France to launch offshore wind farm tender
