Under the Indo European Co-operation on Renewable Energy Program, European Union has funded a consortium led by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and comprising the Center for Study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP), Garrad Hassan India Pvt. Ltd (GL GH), Gujarat Power Corporation Limited (GPCL) and World Institute of Sustainable Energy (WISE) to facilitate the development of offshore wind power in India. The proposed action plan will involve resource assessments in two states, feasibility studies and development of long-term policy framework to accelerate the development of offshore wind in India.
The key objectives of the project are:
• Providing inputs to offshore wind power policy guidelines for the central government and the state governments of Gujarat and Tamil Nadu.
• Reviewing international best practices, knowledge-gap analysis for implementing agencies, promotion of EU-India technical and research cooperation for offshore wind and training decision makers.
