This Round Table is a part of a series being organised by Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) on some key issues in renewable energy (see the proceedings of the first Round Table here: https://www.cseindia.org/re-round-table-1-role-ofrenewables-in-creating-employment-opportunities-10472).
Solar has largely been the focus in India's initiatives in renewable energy; the wind energy sector has struggled to stay afloat. Repowering offers an opportunity to enhance both capacity and utilisation factor of the best wind sites. However, four years after India announced its Repowering Policy in 2016, the progress remains negligible.
CSE invites you to its second RE Round Table, which aims to discuss the evolving role of wind energy in India's renewable energy ambitions; the potential of repowering in the country; gaps in Central and state-level policies; issues obstructing the repowering process; reasons for the disinterest among developers and other stakeholders; lessons from other countries; financial and strategic attractiveness of such projects; and how should India move ahead.
CSE's renewable energy programme has been working extensively to help shape policies and build public awareness to accelerate renewable energy deployment, strengthen energy access for the poor, and facilitate creating opportunities for people for making best use of the technology.
