MNRE notifies draft policy for repowering of the wind power projects

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has notified the draft National Repowering Policy for Wind Power Projects, 2022.

The Ministry had issued Policy for Repowering of the Wind Power Projects on August 5, 2016 in order to create a facilitative framework for repowering. However, the majority of old wind power projects with sub MW scale wind turbines are yet to be repowered. Therefore, a revised policy has been drafted taking into account feedbacks received from various stakeholders and subsequent deliberations. The objectives of the repowering policy are optimum utilisation of wind energy resource by maximising energy (kWh) yield per square km of the project area and utilising the latest state-of-the-art onshore wind turbine technologies. This policy lays out conditions for developers to go for repowering of their old wind turbines.
