WIPPA urges government action for wind energy growth

The Wind Independent Power Producers Association (WIPPA) has put forward four key measures aimed at propelling progress in the wind energy sector. In a statement, WIPPA President Parag Sharma called upon the central government to implement these policies, which include the introduction of a bidding plan, facilitating inter-state transmission system (ISTS) open access, addressing the gaps in the late payment surcharge (LPS) system, and providing enhanced support for offshore wind bids.

To promote awareness about wind energy in anticipation of Global Wind Day on June 15, WIPPA, in collaboration with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), will organise an event.

The Global Wind Day celebration on June 11, 2023, showcased the significant role played by MNRE and WIPPA in rejuvenating India's wind sector.

Dinesh Dayanand Jagdale, the Joint Secretary at MNRE, expressed contentment with the growing gigawatt-scale wind energy projects and the sturdy infrastructure of the wind farms being constructed.

Jagdale stated, "India takes pride in the collective efforts of every state, stakeholder, discom, nodal agency, developer, manufacturer, and financier involved in this journey. With a strong partnership between MahaUrja, MahaDiscom, MNRE, developers, manufacturers, and financiers, I am confident that we will support each other and propel India's wind energy journey. In the future, we will aggressively prioritise the ease of doing business to meet our renewable energy targets."

India had set a target of achieving a renewable energy capacity of 175 GW by 2022, encompassing 100 GW from solar energy, 60 GW from wind energy, 10 GW from bio-power, and 5 GW from small hydro-power.

However, official data reveals that as of May 31, 2023, a total of 173.619 GW of renewable energy capacity has been installed, with wind energy accounting for 43.198 GW.

WIPPA represents wind developers and Independent Power Producers (IPPs) in India, advocating for industry concerns and offering suggestions to both government and non-government entities involved in wind energy development. Its members collectively possess a capacity of approximately 12,000 MW and assets worth over Rs 60,000 crore.
