Indian Wind Resource Atlas launched

India: The Indian government has launched the Indian Wind Resource Atlas with a tracking level of 100 metres that can also be used for measuring solar radiation, providing a tool for improving project efficiency and grid management. The online GIS tool to identify regional and local wind energy potential in India, can also be used for solar power projects to check parameters for selecting a site.

"The government has equal focus on various forms of renewable power and does not discriminate between solar, wind or biogas in terms of providing support to these renewable sources,” said Piyush Goyal, the Minister of State with Independent Charge for Power, Coal and New & Renewable Energy.
