The Ministry of New & Renewable Energy has declared medium and long term target for off-shore wind power capacity additions, which are 5 GW by 2022 and 30 GW by 2030.

While this may look moderate in comparison to India’s on-shore wind target of 60 GW and its achievement of 34 GW and solar target of 100 GW by 2022, this would still be challenging considering the difficulties in installing large wind power turbines in open seas, an official release said.

It may be mentioned that offshore wind turbines are of much larger dimensions and capacities than onshore turbines.

The Ministry of New & Renewable Energy recently invited Expressions of Interest (EoI) for the first 1 GW offshore wind project in India, which has evoked keen response from the industry both global and Indian.

The Ministry of New & Renewable Energy had notified National Off-Shore Wind Policy in October 2015 to realize the offshore wind power potential in the country. 

Preliminary studies have indicated good wind potential for off-shore wind power both in southern tip of Indian peninsula and west coast. 

Two regions where preliminary studies are conducted are off coast of Gujarat and that of Tamil Nadu.
