Viability, implementation risks constrain outlook for wind energy sector; capacity addition to rise to 16 GW by 2023: Crisil

The country’s wind energy sector is likely to see a slow growth with regard to capacity addition over the next five years, CRISIL Research said on Wednesday.

It said capacity addition is expected to rise by 14 to 16 GW over fiscal 2019 to 2023, entailing investments of Rs 1,10,000 crore.

Capacity additions will primarily be driven by Central government allocations with relatively stronger counterparties like Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) and PTC, reducing risk as compared to direct exposure to state discoms, the statement said. Read More
