wind Power

The development of wind power in India began in the 1990s, and has significantly increased in the last few years. Although a relative newcomer to the wind industry compared with Denmark or the US, India has become the country with the fifth largest installed wind power capacity in the world.

India has a great untapped potential for wind energy. According to official estimates, the country’s total wind energy resource amounts to 48 GW of installed capacity, but some experts think that this figure is on the conservative side, and that technological improvements could significantly increase this potential up to an ambitious 100 GW.

As of 31, October 2009 the installed capacity of wind power in India was 10,925 MW, mainly spread across Tamil Nadu (4301.63 MW), Maharashtra (1942.25 MW), Gujarat (1565.61 MW), Karnataka (1340.23 MW), Rajasthan (738.5 MW), Madhya Pradesh (212.8 MW), Andhra Pradesh (122.45 MW), Kerala (26.5 MW), West Bengal (1.1 MW) and other states (3.20 MW).
 
The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has fixed a target of 10,500 MW to be achieved till 2012, but an additional generation capacity of only about 6,000 MW might be available for commercial use by 2012.

Anik Group has initiated its operations towards Power generation from Wind Energy with a modest total capacity of 1.85 MW through Wind Energy. We have setup Wind Power plants in Jaisalmer(Rajasthan) and Dewas (M.P.) of .6 MW and 1.25 MW respectively.
