Indian Wind Energy Alliance launched

 Indian Wind Energy Alliance (IWEA), the apex body for the wind energy industry in India was launched by Piyush Goyal, the minister of state (independent charge) for power, coal and new and renewable energy.
IWEA is a consortium of the Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association (IWTMA) and the Wind Independent Power Producers Association (WIPPA), the two leading trade bodies representing respectively the manufacturing and investing or customer side of the wind business.

IWEA will also work closely with the government to achieve the target of 10 GW of new wind installations every year.
Present at the occasion, Piyush Goyal said, “There is need to enhance wind power development in the country, and the government will provide all the necessary support to the industry to achieve the target of 10,000 MW of wind power installations every year.”
