Wind Energy Capacity Addition Declines Under Auction Regime

Wind Energy Capacity Addition Declines Under Auction Regime

While the onset of wind auctions from early last year has led to greater transparency in the determination of wind tariffs, the transition has also sharply reduced wind capacity addition in 2017-18. The capacity added has only been 1,739.14 MW through the year against a target of 4,500 MW, and far less than the 5,400 MW added in 2016-17 or even the 3,460 MW achieved in 2015-16.
