Offshore wind will ‘surge’ to over 234 GW by 2030; India lags behind

While India is set to miss its first national offshore wind target, global offshore wind capacity will surge to over 234 GW by 2030 from 29.1 GW at the end of 2019, led by exponential growth in the Asia-Pacific region and continued strong growth in Europe, a new report by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) said on Wednesday.

In India nearly 70 GW potential has been earmarked for offshore wind development.

However, the tender for the first 1 GW project in the Gulf of Khambhat in Gujarat has been delayed and attention has now turned to the stronger wind resource area off Tamil Nadu.

India has a national target to have 5 GW installed capacity by 2022 and 30 GW by 2030.
