Wind Power Development -

Global Scenario

Total global installed capacity: 2,15,000 MW*

Wind power technology development in india
Wind Power Technology Development in India

  • The first demonstration wind project of unit size 55 KW installed in the year 1986 in Tamil Nadu.

  • Wind turbines of late 80s were mostly of around 250 KW hub height and rotor dia of 30 m.

  • On commercialization, induced with supportive policy regime the machines with the state of art technology upto unit size of 2000 KW are being installed in the country.

  • Recent trends towards better aero dynamic design, use of lighter and larger blades, higher towers, gear and gearless machines and variable speed of operation, using advanced power electronics.

  • Permission for third party sale to any unit anywhere in the state

Regulatory policy framework
Regulatory Policy Framework

  • As per National Electricity Act-2003, state regulators to specify a minimum percentage of power to be purchased from renewable sources.

  • RPOs have been announced by major states

  • As per National Tariff Policy-2005, state regulators to provide preferential tariff for renewable power.

  • Achievement during

    11th Plan (upto October, 2011) - 8,589 MW

  • Target (2011-12) - 2,400 MW

  • Achievement (2011-12) - 1,527 MW

  • Trends late 10th plan & 11th plan – 1500-1700 MW

    (except 2010-11)

  • 12th Plan Target - 15,000 MW

  • To achieve aspired target : Avg. annual capacity addition of 3000 MW (+)

Resource Assessment

  • Existing estimate of 49 GW is obsolete- TN already harnessed 5.5 GW- another 9 GW in pipeline.

  • Existing assumptions for potential Estimation

    • Sites having wind potential of 200w/sq m at 50 meter hub height considered economically feasible

    • Availability of land in potential sites @ 2 % of the entire area

    • Wind Farm requirement @9 MW/sq km

      May Require Revision

  • Alternative estimates suggest much higher potential- 400 GW- 1200 GW.

  • Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA- even without farm land potential is around 1000 GW

  • Group’s Suggestion: Urgent need to carry out comprehensive potential - Action Initiated

  • Wind resource assessment at 100m level
    Wind Resource Assessment at 100m level

    • Realistic Assessment of wind potential at 100m anemometry based on actual availability of land - in seven wind potential states (Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh).

    • Funding support for resource assessment exercise to be provided by G.O.I

    • Project already initiated by C-WET in association with SNAs.

    • The exercise to be completed in three years

    Wind power density condition
    Wind Power Density Condition

    From 1st August 2011, the condition of no installation below 200 Watt/sqm, has been removed


    • New Generation Machines capable of harnessing lower wind areas

    • lower wind density regimes can have higher CUF

    • All stakeholders, investors, banks etc. understand risks

    • Such conditions does not exists anywhere in world

    Wind forecasting and schedules
    Wind Forecasting and Schedules

    • IEGC (May, 2010) – ‘Wind generators shall be responsible for forecasting their generation upto an accuracy of 70%. If the actual generation is beyond +/- 30% of the schedule wind generator would have to bear the UI charges’.

    • Industry is not ready with Forecasting –delayed by 1 year- now to start 1 Jan 2012

      Task in Hand

    • Forecasting is necessary to transform wind from infirm to semi-firm power – a condition necessary to create countrywide market for wind power

    • Industry to take lead- Help develop capacity so that a number of forecasting players emerge

    Re powering

    • About 4000 MW with unit size below 500kw

    • For better potential harnessing – replace old and smaller generators by larger capacity & new generation wind turbines.

    • Issues - Land ownership, land costing and decommissioning cost

      - States reluctant to go for new PPA

      MNRE is working on

    • Realistic assessment of re-powering potential

    • Creation of an appropriate policy framework for re-powering including- Revision of PPA for repowered projects or transmission of power to other states

      States are requested to provide suggestions

    Offshore wind energy global deployment status
    Offshore wind Energy – Global Deployment Status

    • Onshore wind energy have reached to mass deployment globally, the offshore exploitation of wind energy potential is yet to take off

    • Advantage include: more electricity; higher power density compared to land; less obtrusive; can provide cost competitive electricity to coastal region.

    • According to an estimate there is potential of 2800TWh by 2020 and 3500 by 2030 in Europe.

    • Europe is the global leader in terms of offshore wind energy installation.

    • Globally installations have reached - 2500 MW . (Europe : 2,400 MW followed by China - 100MW and Japan 1MW.

    • 100 GW Projects proposed or under development in Europe as of September,2009.

    • EU targets to establish 40 GW by 2020 and 150GW by 2030.

    Offshore Wind Energy – Technology Status

    • The offshore wind farms in the water depth from 0.8 to 220 m. depth with monopile, jacket, tripod and floating technologies.

    • Offshore Turbines are based on the same technology as the onshore and their residual life is also the same. i.e about 20 years.

    • The rated capacity of the Turbines are at 3MW, 3.6MW and 5MW.

    • At different depth the turbine installation requires different type of bases for stability .

    • A monoplile base is used for water up to 30 m depth, where as turbines are installed on tripod or steel jacket base for 20-80 m depth water.

    Offshore wind deployment barriers
    Offshore Wind deployment: Barriers Type Base

    • Higher cost of energy than land based installations

    • Cost on associated infrastructure: vessels for turbine installations, port and harbor upgrades, manufacturing facilities, work forced training programme maintenance

    • Limited experience in deep waters

    • Technical challenges:- infrastructure development to support fabrication, installation, interconnection, operation and maintenance

    • Yet to evolve standardized approval process( so far it has been on case to case basis)

    Offshore wind india has a coastline of about 7600 km
    Offshore Wind Type BaseIndia has a coastline of about 7600 km

    CONT… Type Base

    • The Ministry has constituted a Technical Committee to analyze the available offshore wind data to identify the offshore wind areas and their potential.

    • Potential for Tamil Nadu is being carried out by C-WET in collaboration with European experts

    • The preliminary estimates suggests offshore wind potential at Kanniyakumari and Dhanshukodi in Rameshwaram.

    • After Potential estimation pilot projects will be undertaken
