Wind Energy – The Need of the Hour

In today’s time when pollution levels have crossed alarming levels and climate change has become a worldwide concern, it is imperative for nations particularly India to resort to renewable and clean energy sources like Wind Energy.

Wind Energy – Get Introduced to It!

Wind energy or wind power is a renewable power source, which is extracted from air flow with the help of wind turbines/sails for producing mechanical/electrical energy. It is considered better than non-renewable power sources because of reasons like abundant availability, wide distribution, and negligible greenhouse gas emissions during operation. All-in-all, it is a great way to generate mechanical or electrical energy without harming our Mother Nature.

Wind Power in India

Given the benefits wind energy has to offer, it is widely being used as a power source across nations. In India, the development of wind power started in the 1990s. The development in this sector significantly increased in a span of two decades and today India is known to have the fifth largest installed wind power capacity in the world. Despite this achievement, there is lot more to be done in this area. This is the reason why The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has set ambitious targets of reaching 60,000 MW capacities. However, this can be achieved only when government and bodies like Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association join their hands.

Before we can completely adopt and contribute in the development of Wind Power, it is pertinent to understand the nitty-gritty of the domain. The Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association makes it possible with the launch of Windergy India; it is a unique digital platform to create awareness about the Wind Energy sector in India.

The association wants to leverage the benefits of this digital platform to create wider public awareness on the benefits of wind energy, and the sectors efforts in India. You can know more about their initiatives and campaigns by visiting their profiles on social networking sites given below.
