Climate Change Impact On Wind Speed May Lead To More Power Generation, Says IIT-B Study

A wind assessment study recently conducted by the researchers at the IIT-B has revealed that even as climate change poses a constant threat to future generations, it could also prove to be a boon with increased generation of wind-powered electricity. The study, published in the Meteorological Applications, suggested that power generation from offshore wind turbines,  if set up at Rameshwaram and Kanyakumari, off Tamil Nadu coast, and Jakhau along the Gujarat coast, could increase  anywhere between 30 and  45 per cent.

At present, India generates power from onshore wind turbines. However, with the union government eyeing an expansion through offshore installations, these can be potential sites for power generation in the future, revealed the study. Read More…
