According to reports, in an important milestone for India’s journey towards 24×7 power for all based on green energy, ABB India on Thursday said it has surpassed the 4.5GW mark with the delivery of over 2,000 wind power generators across the country.
Currently, India has installed capacity of 28 GW of wind-generated electricity. Around 10 percent of this was installed in 2015. Several policy and regulatory incentives are spurring growth in the sector. The Narendra Modi-led government has set ambitious target of generating 60 GW of electricity from wind power generators by 2022.
An electric generator is positioned at the heart of any wind mill and turbine, which converts natural power of wind into electricity. ABB India is among the largest generator manufacturers for wind turbines which are made in their plant at Vadodara in Gujarat.
