According to data reported by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy for January 2021, solar power capacity in India was 38.7 gigawatts. Wind energy capacity was reported to be 38.6 gigawatts.
The risk of damage to turbines from cyclones has cut India’s electricity output, despite a longer windy season.
According to forecasts contained in Carbon Trust’s new Floating Wind Joint Industry Project’s (JIP’s) second phase summary report an estimated 70 gigawatt (GW) of floating wind could be installed across the globe by 2040,.
The world’s wind power capacity grew by almost a fifth in 2019 after a year of record growth for offshore windfarms and a boom in onshore projects in the United States and China.
