About the Webinar

On 10 June, the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and Mec Intelligence (MEC+) will publish the second edition of their joint report on ‘India Wind Energy Market Outlook 2025’, which provides a detailed analysis of wind power’s role as a critical link in the energy transition in India. The report aims to give a perspective on wind power growth in the country from the point of view of the wind sector, and the current and future role of the industry in supporting India’s decarbonisation and climate goals.

Last year’s outlook expected 2020 to be a break-out year for wind installations in India, thanks to a large pipeline and multiple policy interventions to ease execution bottlenecks. However, the impact of the COVID-19 lockdowns in India was more severe than anticipated. Nonetheless, wind is emerging as a critical link to enable India’s green energy transition, and the report forecasts a surge in wind power over the next five years. The report also sets out actions needed to speed up project installation to support the country’s ambitious goal of installing 450 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030.

In the official launch of the ‘India Wind Energy Market Outlook 2025’ report, we will hear from the authors on key takeaways from the report, including insights on market trends and forecasts and the pathway to unlock the full potential of India’s vast wind resource, and from industry representatives on how the wind industry can position itself as an ally to help the Indian government realise its ambitious decarbonisation plans.
