The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has announced the targets for tapping the country’s offshore wind potential. The targets have been set at 5 GW by 2022 and 30 GW by 2030. This announcement was made after the first ever expressions of interest (EoIs) invited for an offshore wind project received a positive response from developers. These EoIs were invited by the National Institute of Wind Energy (NIWE) in April 2018. According to studies, there is a high offshore wind potential in southern regions of the peninsula and along the western coast.
