22 Slow wind

Down to Earth - - THE FORTNIGHT -

In 1992, our ar­ti­cle "Wind power, up, up and down" had warned that poorly im­ple­mented gov­ern­men­tal poli­cies are pre­vent­ing the full ex­ploita­tion of wind power which could sup­ple­ment as much as 25 per cent of the coun­try's elec­tric en­ergy re­quire­ments. Two decades later, we pub­lished an­other ar­ti­cle "Wind loses power", which shows Tamil Nadu has 40 per cent of the wind en­ergy ca­pac­ity in­stalled in In­dia, yet the state is reel­ing from power cri­sis.
