The FOWIND consortium launched its new report: "From Zero To Five GW: Offshore Wind Outlook for Gujarat And Tamil Nadu (2018-2032)". This study is a roadmap for the offshore wind sector in India by the GWEC led FOWIND (Facilitating Offshore Wind In India) consortium.
The study presents an informed outlook for the amount of new offshore wind capacity that can be reliably incorporated into the two state grids, including the regional transmission and distributions networks, efficiently and in a planned manner over the next three 5 year plan periods, starting in 2018. The work done under this report is based on today's policies, market and technology trends along with experience with the FOWIND project since 2014. FOWIND has developed a preliminary roadmap for initiating a sustainable and commercially viable offshore wind industry, focusing on two coastal states out of a total of eight coastal states and the Union Territory of Goa. Further investigations could deliver a more detailed pan-India outlook for offshore wind developments over the longer term.
