IWTMA Submits Recommendations to MNRE

Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association (IWTMA) has announced that it has participated in the brainstorming session, ‘Chintan Baithak’ organized by Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) and submitted their recommendations to the Ministry

Tulsi Tanti, Chairman IWTMA said, “The wind energy sector has been reeling under tremendous pressure and struggling with the transition from FiT to competitive bidding regime and focus only on lowest tariff has slowed the industry’s growth. In FY19, only 1,523 MW, of new capacity was added taking country-wide cumulative installation figure to 35,129 MW. We applaud MNRE for driving the shift towards making renewable energy part of India’s energy mix with its different initiatives. However, to help India realize and leverage its huge potential in renewable energy & achieve its target of 175 GW by 2002; IWTMA seeks better collaboration from all stakeholders and stability in policy framework to help manufacturing stable order pipeline which is crucial to their existence and projects become more bankable”

IWTMA has made the following recommendations to the Ministry:

Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) policy for <25 MW for small domestic investors in States

  • Uniform Wheeling & Banking policy for captive power SME consumers
  • Under Open Access, ISTS charges waiver for captive power consumers

Implement FiT & 5 yrs. firm policy framework to develop 50 GW

  • NIWE certified 3 wind zones: less concentration on 2 high windy States
  • 5 yrs. tariff for each wind zone by CERC with yearly tariff reduction of 5 p.
  • Tariff fixation should be as per national tariff policy
  • SECI will provide PPA based on CERC tariff

SECI to offer Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) after land allotment by State Govt. and connectivity by PGCIL

Encourage manufacturing with 30% Capital subsidy (from carbon cess), uniform 5% GST & export incentive at 10%
