Guest of Honour, Mr. Sumant Sinha, Chairman & CEO, ReNew Power said, “As the leading renewable energy company in India, ReNew Power is delighted to be associated with Windergy India 2017. This marquee event will provide a platform for experts to exchange views and best practices to help grow the sector. Wind energy is already a significant portion of the renewable capacity installed in India and there is enough potential for the country to reach its target of 60 GW by 2022. The ecosystem of manufacturers, IPPs and investors is well established. India recently became the first country in Asia to introduce auctions in the wind sector and it helped discover a very competitive price. Last year witnessed a stellar performance by the sector with an addition of 5.4 GW capacity, surpassing all previous records. However, to sustain momentum in the long run, the government must ensure strong Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO) compliance to meet the 60 GW target, which must be a sacrosanct number for us as a nation. In the immediate term, the capacity addition momentum needs to continue through announcement of further wind auctions both at the State and Central level. In India, wind energy is in a unique position as compared to other forms of renewables as it generates employment both at the equipment manufacture as well as at the power generation stage; thereby contributing to the Make in India program of the government.”
