New Study: India Wind Energy Potential 20-30 Times Greater than Official Estimates

The Indian government estimates were based on 50 year old studies at hub height of 50 meters. I doubt any company makes wind turbines with hub height of 50 meters these days. Tamil Nadu, the state with the highest wind power installed capacity in India, has already surpassed the old estimated potential. The Indian government too has now raised the wind energy potential after making measurements at 80 meters. Another crucial development last year was that the government allowed developers to set up projects at sites with relatively lower wind potential due to the vastly improved technology. This has opened up vast areas for expansion of the most trusted renewable energy resource in India.
