On my recent road-trip to Kovalam from Madhurai, I found that there were many windmills set which were moving with the speed of wind. Instantly, it reminded me of the power of wind which is being used in several parts of the country as turbine generated energy to be used for various purposes like in irrigation, in electricity generation in machine operation, in pulling water from deep underground and many more things.
|The Future Of Wind Energy In India|
Did you know, India is the fourth largest producer of wind power. States of Gujarat, MP, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra are in the top most wind energy projected state.
The potentiality of wind resources has been estimated to produce 49,130 MW to 300,000 MW of energy which is a significant amount to be utilized for several works. Capturing the wind energy is not always very easy. It needs the implementation of well-organized and properly operated machinery and equipment to trap the speed of wind through wind vane and change it into mechanical energy through turbine revolving placed at the bottom.
As India is very effective and competent to manufacture its own turbine, the cost factor can be used for other processes. The wind turbines manufactured by India are sufficient to meet its domestic demand as well as for export to other countries in need, leading to economic growth and profit.
The available barren lands and suitable speed of wind in various places of the country away from crowded places had given the scope to get the suitable speed of wind and use the energy for electrical vehicles and machinery operation. There will be significant control over pollution if fossil fuel is replaced by wind power.
In addition, various private bodies are interested to avail the government subsidies and establish wind farms in places where the wind speed can used for energy generation.
The future of wind energy can bring positive changes for social, economic and environmental effect in India through optimal use of natural wind power.
Talking of which, you will be glad to know that Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association has recently launched Windergy India. It is a unique digital platform which is made to create awareness about the Wind Energy sector in India. Get more info. on Windergy India here.
