Despite high capacity targets for wind energy and its strong cost-competitiveness, new installations in the Indian wind market have declined by 50% over the last two years. The government conducted auctions for more than 7.7 GW of capacity in 2019, of which only 2.4 GW was subscribed, remaining were either unsubscribed or, canceled/abandoned after being awarded.

The market is expected to be lumpy in the next three years due to supply and demand realities. Due to this market uncertainty, installation outlook varies between 48-54 GW by 2023, against the target of 60 GW.

Experts also addressed how COVID-19 is impacting the Indian wind market, the effects of the ongoing lockdown, future demand-side and supply-side risks, and where the industry stands today.
