Gujarat Wind Power Policy 2013
Wind Power as an energy source is a non-polluting, environment-friendly, reasonably priced energy with shorter project gestation period. State of Gujarat recognizing the need for long term energy security in current scenario of volatile fossil fuel costs, global warming & climate change has been promoting wind power generation in the State. The State Government by and time has revisited its Wind Power policy to encourage Wind Generation in the state. The State blessed with long coast line and good wind speeds for harnessing of the Wind Energy has successfully installed more than 3000 MW Wind capacity. To accelerate the investment in Renewable sector, need for further investment in Clean and Green Energy sources is observed. With the revised estimated potential of more than 35000 MW from Wind energy sources in the State, it was under consideration of the Government to review the present wind power policy.
