Is Renewable Energy A Smart Business Idea Just Yet, in India?: Mentions a few players in India:
- Mr Jami Hossain, project director with Winrock India
- "Wind power generation has become India’s leading source of clean energy. Just over 1,900 megawatts (mw) of energy across the country is generated by wind. The leading player in the field is Suzlon Energy Limited. The former textile company got into the wind power generating business seven years ago with the help of incentives from the Gujarat state government. Back then it had 20 employees, today it has just over 1,000"
- "Tata BP Solar manufactures solar photovoltaic and thermal systems. For the year ended March, 2002, Tata BP Solar posted profits of Rs 180 crore — a little more than half that profit was derived from exports. Though the figure is small compared with Tata’s other interests, it’s growing at an enviable rate. Three years ago profits were Rs 81 crore. "
