The Wind Energy sector in India is not growing for the last couple of years. The consequence could be the failure in target attainment promised in Paris Climate Summit and also losing the opportunity to become the global manufacturing hub. Would it be possible for India to turn around?

India needs to wake up and run to streamline all existing and potential hurdles coming in the way of wind energy growth. It requires time to develop skilled people to produce world-class wind turbines. Present team size in the country is not sufficient to take care of the 'growth' demand. Therefore, the induction of new people from nonwind sectors and train them for the wind energy sector is obvious and it needs to be started now.

What are the most closely related industries with transferrable skills-- would it be other types of energy generation being replaced by wind, or something like the aeronautical engineering industry?

it could be Machine Building,Equipment Manufacturing,Automobile or even mining Industry. For example, Goldwind Americas recruited people from coal mines and trained them for wind Industry.

That sounds like a true win win-- from dirty energy directly to clean!
