India constitutes Offshore Wind Energy Steering Committee

The Government has constituted an Offshore Wind Energy Steering Committee under the chairmanship of Secretary, M/o New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) associating the stakeholder Ministries to steer the offshore wind energy development in the country in a directed and focused manner including modality for inter-agency coordination.

The development of offshore wind energy projects also depends upon firming of wind resource, oceanographic studies, environmental impact assessment, infrastructure to support fabrication, interconnection and evacuation of electricity from these systems, clearances required from various Ministries/stakeholders etc.

India ranks 5th in terms of installed capacity from wind energy projects globally which has reached to 18522 MW as on 31.01.2013. The preliminary assessment along the coastline suggests that there could be potential to develop offshore wind energy along Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and Maharashtra coasts.
