AWS Truepower, LLC, an international leader in renewable energy consulting and information services, in its first installment of India’s Wind Trends Bulletin, a quarterly analytical wind report for the second quarter said nearly all of India experienced below normal wind speeds during April and May.
Wind speeds rebounded in June, but were not strong enough to balance the strong negative deviations present during April and May throughout much of southern India.
“Winds during the second quarter were substantially below normal,” said Michael Brower, AWS Truepower’s Chief Technical Officer. “This continues the pattern of the previous two years. The problem is especially severe in the southern half of the country, where the bulk of Indian wind projects are located.” AWS Truepower plans to conduct further research into the wind anomalies in India.
