Polaris wind hair Network News : Science and Technology Research Center by the Indian and Policy (CSTEP) led consortium has already begun on the potential of wind energy Gujarat and Tamil Nadu waters near assessed.

The consortium, called FOWIND also includes the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), Det Norske Veritas (DNV), Germanischer Lloyd (GL), Gujarat Power Corporation and the World Institute of Sustainable Energy (WISE). FOWIND has launched a laser radar of supply, installation, commissioning and maintenance of the bidding. Proposals received bidding deadline for May 15, a maintenance contract is valid for 2.5 years.

GWEC Secretary-General Steve Sawyer said, these devices can help measure India's offshore wind power potential, so that India could achieve offshore wind power in 2019. 2014, GWEC announced by the European Commission on Indo-European cooperation in renewable energy projects 4 million euros (about 5.5 million US dollars) of special funds to take advantage of India four years to develop offshore wind circuit diagram. Moreover, India's new energy and renewable energy sectors (MNRE), said the department is also committed to the construction of India's policy framework for offshore wind.

India Energy Development Planning Agency in 2023 in Tamil Nadu to build offshore wind power installed capacity of at least 200,000 kilowatts. In addition, India in October last year, has announced it will build India's first offshore wind farm , wind power demonstration project that is located in Gujarat coast. India plans to 2022 renewable energy installed capacity of 200 million kilowatts goals.
