The European Union is backing a four-year project by the Global Wind Energy Council to draw up a roadmap for offshore wind development in India up to 2032.

The scheme, which is supported by a €4m contribution from the EU’s Indo-European Cooperation on Renewable Energy programme, will focus on the states of Gujarat and Tamil Nadu.

The specific objectives are to create an “enabling environment for offshore wind through resource mapping, policy guidance and capacity building measures, and to assess the inrastructure base and identify improvements required”, said GWEC.

In addition, the project will aim to “build partnerships at a technical, policy and research level both within India and between India and EU companies, research groups and institutions” with a final goal of developing an outlook and development pathway.
