Union Government Launches Scheme for Wind Power Project

The Union Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has launched a scheme for setting up of 1000 Mega Watt (MW) Wind Power Project connected to transmission network of Central Transmission Utility (CTU)The objective of the scheme is to facilitate the supply of wind power to the non-windy states at a price discovered through the transparent bidding process. MNRE has also designated Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) as the nodal agency for implementation of the scheme.

This scheme will increase competitiveness through scaling up of project sizes and introduction of transparent and efficient e-auctioning and e-bidding processes. It will also facilitate fulfillment of Non-Solar Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO) requirement of non-windy states. The Scheme will be implemented for setting up 1000 MW capacity of CTU connected Wind Power Projects by Wind Project Developers on build, own and operate (BOOT) basis. However, if there is higher demand from Discoms of non-windy states the capacity may go higher than 1000 MW. AS the GOI has set an ambitious target of achieving 175 GW power capacity from renewable energy resources by 2022 and out of this 60 GW has to come from wind power

So let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the Ministry which has launched a scheme for setting up of 1000 MW wind power project connected to transmission network of CTU?
2. Name the nodal agency which has been designated for the implementation of the scheme?
