Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association (IWTMA), along with PDA Trade Fairs Pvt Ltd and participation of Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) as an International Cooperation Partner, is organising the 4th edition of India’s only comprehensive International Trade Fair and Conference for the Wind sector, Windergy India 2020 by the Wind Industry. The event will be held from 28th to 30th April 2020 at the India Expo Centre & Mart (IEML), Greater Noida, India. This flagship event is supported by Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India.
India is one of the countries, with the most extensive production of energy from renewable sources and 23.3% (Source: CEA) of the total installed power capacity is from renewable energy, of which, around 43.7% (Source: CEA) is contributed by Wind Energy (around 37.5 GW). The country pledged, by 2030, 40% of installed power generation capacity in the country shall be based on clean sources, of which 175 GW of renewable energy capacity will be installed by 2022. This includes 100 GW from Solar, 60 GW from Wind, 10 GW from Bio-power and 5 GW from small Hydropower.
The Indian Wind Energy manufacturing capacity is 10 GW per annum and has achieved around 80% indigenization which is in line with “Make in India” initiative. The supply chain is supported by 4000 vendors of which majority are from MSME sector. Majority of wind installations happen in the rural India thereby a very positive social impact on the rural economy.
Wind Resource Assessment by National Institute of Wind Energy (NIWE) has announced a potential of onshore wind of 600+ GW at 120 meter hub height. India has a signatory to COP-21 has pledged 60 GW by 2022 and 140 GW by 2030 and basket of 450 GW of RE. It is a matter of pride that India can boast of the lowest cost of the turbine and project in the world thereby attracting Global Investment and a great opportunity to export state-of-the art turbines and components. The industry appreciates the policy initiatives of Central and State Government and regulatory intervention for an orderly all-inclusive growth.
Windergy India 2020 projects to bring around 6000 key decision-makers including DISCOMs, Independent Power Producers, Governments, Corporates, International Organisations, Non-Profit Organisations, PSUs, Non-Governmental Organisations, R&D Institutions and many more besides Wind Turbine and Component Manufacturers, for three days of industry meet, interaction and deliberation on the future of wind power in India.
Attendees can gain by meeting over 200 + Indian and international wind energy technology companies who will be exhibiting cutting edge wind power production & distribution solutions and technologies. The event offers unmatched networking opportunities and 3 days of intense deliberations at the international conference.
