Energy is necessary for every aspect of socioeconomic development in the world. In this context, the Indian Government has been undertaking liberalization measures, where a higher demand-supply gap for electricity for each sector of the economy exists. Therefore, a slower development occurs. In this process of reforms, policy has been focusing on energy security considering its easy accessibility and sufficient availability with affordable pricing, efficiency, and environment friendly renewable energy generations. It seems that regulators need to seek alternative incentive measures that encourage renewable energy sources like ‘wind’.
Since early 1980s, India has been utilizing renewable energy technologies for electricity generation through wind energy resource. There is an encouragement for the use of this resource by establishing countrywide network of wind-speed measurement stations. This is helping to assess the national wind potential and identify suitable areas for harnessing wind power. Hence, this process is supposed to mitigate needs of each sector of the economy. However, it still feels that there is a need of further technological innovation and improvements, and replacement with new wind equipments such as higher hub-height, turbine blades accommodating with the direction of the wind.
