In the quest of development, we are exploiting the mother nature recklessly and injecting poison in the natural environment. Now this has exceeded the limit, earth’s surface is getting warmer, the ecological system of earth started dying. This will kill us all very soon unless we take immediate action to rejuvenate it. Wind energy can help us to a great extent. Fans of wind turbines can make the earth cooler.

As of now, out of total 18% share of renewable energy in our national power capacity, wind power is contributing  10% . Our Government has a plan to increase the share of ‘renewables’ from 18% to 54% by 2030, and wind energy will contribute by 17 %  in it. Further pushing the ‘renewables’ share to 80% by 2040,wind energy require to contribute by 58%.

Given these proposed milestones, it sounds like the short-term goal (by 2030) is to ramp up renewables other than wind more strongly, but between 2030 and 2040 wind will rapidly expand. What are the other short-term renewables in focus-- solar? And why does it appear that wind's growth is targeted to be steady this decade before expanding rapidly in the 2030s?

1. Other renewables are:

 Solar, Hydropower and Biomass.

2. In 2017 the regime had changed from feed in tarrief to reverse bidding.This has resulted in a huge tarrief drop making the business unsustanable.Some issues on prower grid capacity shortage and availability of lands are also there.As a result for last 3 years the growth has completely ceased. Now the Government and the investors are trying to resolve issues together and hopefully next year onwards growth will again return in phased manner.
