Congratulations to all of us! We have become world’s fifth largest wind energy producer.
This news is just an indication that we are on the right track. Although, we need to dedicate more of our energy towards harnessing these unlimited source of energy to fuel our country’s growth.
Current production of wind energy annually is approximately 3,000 MW, which is marginally behind Denmark, which has a total installed capacity of 3,117 MW, according to a recent World Wind Energy Association report). India had a growth rate of more than 40% over last year.
Although, it may sound fantastic, but the fact is, we still have tapped only 7% of the total potential capacity, i.e., 45,000 MW.
