The involvement of giant cranes in wind turbine erection or replacement maintenance is expensive and cumbersome. Nothing like that if we could subtract this totally. Crane less method is getting developed worldwide to address this issue. India is also not behind and has done many successful innovations.

Very interesting stuff. Thanks. It shows that the era of wind power is still developing rapidly. Costs are going down. Power is going up.
It is especially good to see that India is making good progress in adopting the new technology. Without India and other southeast Asian countries on-board, there is no way that Paris promises can be kept.
So, when will the generation of power with coal start to decrease in India?

Thanks for your reading. Yes, India is continually increasing its RE portfolio. It has a commitment to add 175 GW of RE it the grid by December 2022. Though may fall short of around 50 GW because of various reasons. Pandemic is one of them.

At this moment RE contribution is 10% and step by step,it is estimated to reach 30%-40% by 2040. As per recent news, the biggest PSU in the oil and gas sector INDIAN OIL CORPORATION has taken up the initiative to set up the first Green Hydrogen plant in the country.
