The wind energy sector across the globe has drawn serious attention for development to mitigate global warming. All concerned countries are acting seriously to draw more energy from wind and solar to reduce the use of fossil fuel usage. India has also set an ambitious target of generating about 140 GW of wind energy by 2030. This target calls for a rapid expansion in the wind sector. At the same time, it has become a challenge to get specially trained people to serve this rapid expansion.

- Speaking generally will lead to no way. Wind Energy is a multidisciplinary term, could be branched into main categories such as: Manufacturing, installation and erection, operation and maintenance .
In my opinion, the best way is the bottom-up planning process Therefore, each category has to be laid down in geographic areas and zones across the country.

- Best practice and experience around the globe can tell us the approximate number of skilled people for a standard module such as 10 MW Wind Power from A to Z.

- For a specific country, the strategic planner can estimate the annual required growth of wind power to reach a specific target, say, in 2030 or 2050. This lupm sum has to be divided on geographically promising areas acording to the country's Wind Atlas.


- Sequentially, each zone can underpin its future needs on an annual basis about the required skilled manpower . Here is the vital role of educational process to answer : who? , where? and when? with the main concern of how much , how to finance ?
