In an interview to the English news channel ET NOW, some of the prominent names of the Indian renewable energy industry shared their thoughts on why wind power was losing its speed in the alternative energy sector. Mr. Narasimhan Santhanam, Director, Energy Alternatives India [EAI] explained on how the Wind farms were initially set up in areas where there were no land acquisition problems and in the coastal region of the state; followed by Mr. Shivaram, vice-chairman & CEO, Orient Green Power, who elaborated on how the industrial demand and the incentivized packages like guaranteed Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) and a 80% discounted depreciation catapulted wind energy to its peak. These facts were reaffirmed by Mr. Banmali Agarwala, ED, Strategy and Business Development, TATA Power, who also said that the estimated capacity of wind energy was 12 GW. http://www.eai.in/ref/eve/wind_power_an_indian_scenario.html
