IPP to drive wind capacity growth

February 2012
With significant increase in the contribution from the independent power producer (IPP) segment, wind power capacity may expand by 15 per cent in 2012-13 and beyond, according to rating agency ICRA. The share of the IPP segment in the overall installations remained mute in the past but improved to about 20 per cent in 2010-11. This can be attributed to larger project sizes undertaken by them, ranging to above 50 MW.

The agency pegs the wind energy capacity addition in 2011-12 at around 2,800 MW as against the 2,350 MW added a year ago.
