First National Wind Energy Mission to begin by mid-2014

Location: NEW DELHI
08th January 2014  To: 08th January 2014

The 'National Wind Energy Mission (NWEM), which would be launched around the middle of the year would be the first wind energy mission by the government this year to give a boost to the renewable source and putting it in the same league as the high-profile solar mission, which would give incentives to invest, east land clearances and regulate tariffs. But unlike the flagship 'National Solar Mission' it would not involve projects for bidding. It would act as a "facilitator", officials reportedly said.

"We wish to coordinate separate lines of action in the wind sector and involve all the stakeholders. Wind energy led to the establishment of renewable based power in the country but lately it has been marred by several issues," reportedly said by Alok Srivastava, joint secretary (wind) in the ministry for new and renewable sources of energy.

Under the proposed action plan, MNRE would strengthen grid infrastructure for wind power, identify high wind power potential zones, and ease land clearances.
