Wind power has shown remarkable growth over the past decade, with the global cumulative installed wind farm capacity reaching 215 GW by June 2011. By 2015, installations are predicted to grow at an annual average rate of 15.5%, with the annual installed capacity growing to 81.4 GW from the current 39.5 GW (2010), including offshore development.
India has maintained its position as one of the leading wind power nations, remaining at fifth position worldwide in terms of cumulative installations in 2011. The Indian wind turbines industry has successfully weathered the economic slowdown encountered by many other nations and is moving towards achieving maturity.
Presently, the country has a cumulative installed wind farm capacity of 15,567 MW. The capacity addition for FY 2011-12 is expected to be around 3,000 MW, out of which 1,411 MW has already been achieved. According to WISE estimates, the annual capacity increase for the Indian wind market is expected to reach 5000 MW by 2015.
As witnessed in last year’s event, WIND POWER INDIA 2012 will continue to focus on India’s pre-eminent position in the global wind market, bringing together the entire international wind fraternity into its realm. But this time on, the event will be organized on a grander scale comprising a state-of-the-art, business-oriented, and technically-innovative conference, and a high-tech international exhibition. With huge opportunities for networking, knowledge-sharing, and B2B meets, you will also find yourself in the elite company of some of the biggest names in the global wind industry. So come, participate in WIND POWER INDIA 2012 and be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
