A recent report from Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LNBL) has estimated that India’s wind power potential could be as high as 2 million MW, that is 2000 GW. This is a phenomenally large number and in theory at least implies that wind power can satisfy all India’s power needs for the foreseeable future.
The implicit assumption in the LNBL estimate was that many low wind regime zones in India could be effectively made productive to produce wind power. That is a big assumption!
And such an assumption necessarily puts the spotlight on the low wind regime turbine technology.
What indeed are the latest technologies and concepts powering low regime wind turbines? Will be great to hear from industry experts here…
