The State of Gujarat with its longest coast line in the
country and inland windy sites has a potential of
over 10,000 MW of wind power.

Wind Power Density in Gujarat, W/m2

Over the last 25 years more
than 65 sites have been
monitored for wind
speed and wind power
density, and over 50 sites have
been found feasible for
harnessing wind power

The Centre for Wind Energy Technology, an autonomous R&D institution under MNRE,
has identified and approved 40 sites for wind energy deployment with annual
average wind power density greater than 200 W/sq. m. at a 50 m height in Gujarat.
