'India can achieve wind power target'
: "India possesses sufficient resources to generate 5000 mw of installed wind power capacity by 2007, participants at a recent discussion said. .. It was suggested that the Centre explore the possibility of setting up a wind-farm development company — possibly as a public sector undertaking — to kick-start the project. The Ministry of Non-Conventional Energy Sources (MNES) — in association with the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorolgy, State nodal agencies and the Centre for Wind Energy Technology (C-WET), a Government body under the MNES — has installed more than 476 wind monitoring masts. Based on this exercise, the MNES has been identifying areas suitable for wind farming. To develop indigenous capability for technology development and wind engineering, it was proposed to structure a `wind energy technology enhancement fund'. " 10:00:29 PM
