India, a global leader in wind power, continues to witness remarkable progress in the renewable energy landscape. As of 30 June 2023, the installed wind power capacity in India exceeded 43,773 MW, making it the fourth largest in the world. The wind energy sector has not only contributed to India’s renewable energy targets but also has various socio-economic benefits. Additionally, wind energy has helped reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve energy security, and provide access to clean electricity.
The Government of India has set ambitious targets to increase the share of renewable energy, including wind power, in the country’s overall energy mix. Offshore wind energy is gaining traction, and there is potential for significant capacity addition along the coastline. Central and the respective state governments have been actively working on the policy and regulatory framework to streamline the development process, ensure environmental sustainability, and attract investments in this sector.
Windergy India, the premier industry platform dedicated to the wind energy sector via a trade fair and a conference, is set to showcase its immense potential and lucrative opportunities from 4 to 6 October 2023 at the Chennai Trade Centre, Chennai.
Supported by Ministry of Power, Ministry of Renewable Energy, NitiAayog and by the Government of Tamil Nadu through its investment promotion arm, Tamil Nadu Guidance Bureau as the Invest partner, Windergy India will have representations from all the wind-rich states such as Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Rajasthan with a delegation.
Alongside the trade fair, a two-day conference themed on “Power of Wind 2.0 – Energizing the Future of India” will be organised. The conference will host special addresses, keynote speeches, panel discussions, and technology presentations revolving around key topics, offshore development in India, and Tamil Nadu’s unique context.
In addition to the extensive trade fair and conference, Windergy India 2023 will also host round table discussions involving key stakeholders from Spain, UK, Denmark, and the Tamil Nadu Guidance Bureau
