INDIAN WIND TURBINE MANUFACTURERS ASSOCIATION (IWTMA) Presentation at the Workshop on Renewable Energy of Experts and Policy Planners from ASEAN countries “Wind Power Technology in India” MINISTRY OF NEW AND RENEWABLE ENERGY at Delhi on 5th November 2012 Introduction • Only country to have a dedicated Ministry for New and Renewable Energy. • Potential 100,000 MW – can go up to 200,000 MW • Investment friendly policies of MNRE and financial arm of IREDA • Capacity addition in the next 5 years – 15,000 MW and can go up to 25,000 MW IWTMA • IWTMA – Association of Technology Providers – Turnkey solution – Key drivers of the wind market. • We thank the support of MNRE, C-WET, IREDA, Regulatory Authorities and State Nodal Agencies. • IWTMA is recognized in policy discussion and intervention for a sustainable growth. • The manufacturing capacity (IWTMA Members + Others) is around 10,000 MW per annum. • The range of turbines is a small from 250 KW to 2.5 MW. • The manufacturing companies in India are Indian Companies with Technology transfer, wholly owned subsidiaries, Joint Venture Partnership and license for Global exploitation. Technology • The technology covers from Stall Turbines (fixed speed) to Pitch, Doubly Fed Induction Generators (DFIG), Direct Drive with Electro Magnetic Generators and Permanent Magnetic Generators. • Turbines are suitable for Class-II and Class-III wind sites and currently for low wind regimes. • Hug heights up to 100 Meters and Blade Diameter up to 100 Meters have been achieved. • Achievement of rated wind power from the old 18 mtrs. per second is now 10.5 to 11 mtrs. per second • Accent on localization of components suitable for Indian grid and climatic condition. In-house manufacture – eg. Blades, Towers, Direct Drive Generators and Converters. • Complimenting C-WET in Wind Resource Assessment Programme and creation of power evacuation and infrastructure to help state transmission companies. Recent Happenings • Technology of turbines to harness energy at sites having a wind power density below 200 Watts / M2 • Co-operation with National and State Load Despatch Centres in short term forecasting and scheduling. • Repowering – Utilization of best land for maximising generation. • Refurbished old turbines for exports to countries with wind power start up programmes. • Integration of Southern Grid with National Grid by 2014 • Integration of wind and solar project of 200 MW with evacuation of 150 MW. Future…….. • Staggering bills of Oil, Coal and Gas – Wind is certainly an answer. • Judicious mix of wind and other renewables will help the country towards energy security. • NAPCC target of 15% by 2020 require over 7500 MW per annum. • 7000 Kms of coastal line – opportunity for exploiting offshore – activities taken by C-WET • Storage solution to energy Conclusion • Wind is recognized today as an integral part of energy solution. • Predominantly in rural areas it has changed the socio economic fabric of the society. • Creation of rural employment – a potential in all wind states • India can offer rich experience of wind energy programmes to Asean countries inclusive of technology transfer. • Request all guests to be a part of Wind Power India 2012 happening at Chennai showcasing technology and a high power conference on various opportunities and challenges to the stakeholders.
