Wind energy in India

Madhya Pradesh, India Renewable Energy

This green energy wind power project is located in the villages of Mandsaur and Ratlam, which is in the Madhya Pradesh state in India.

At a glance

  • The purpose of the project activity is to generate electrical power using wind energy through operation of Wind Electric Generators (WEG’s).

  • The project activity is to generate clean electricity using wind energy.

  • The project activity displaces an equivalent amount of electricity which would have otherwise been generated by fossil fuel dominant electricity grid.

CO2 impact

The electricity generated by the project is exported to the NEWNE electricity grid. The project activity displaces an amount of electricity which would have otherwise been generated by a fossil fuel dominant electricity grid. Since wind power is Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions free, the power generated prevented the anthropogenic gas emissions generated by fossil fuel based thermal power stations comprising coal, diesel, furnace oil and gas. Hence, the generation by the proposed activity is non-GHG source and thus reduces the proportion of fossil fuel-based generation in the grid leading to lesser carbon intensive grid. The project activity leads to an annual emission reduction of 167,934 tCO2.

Biodiversity benefits

The land of the Project is not located in sensitive ecological zones, biodiversity conservation areas, and there are no rare and valuable plant and animal species. Through engineering measures and greening measures, the condition of ground vegetation will be gradually improved; No rare species have been found in the around area. Further, the project site is more than 500 kms away from Gir National Park and more than 100 kms far from the Manund Forest Area. Therefore, there is no impact on the biodiversity due to project activity.

Socio-economic benefits

The project activity will help in alleviation of poverty in the area as it creates employment opportunities to the local people. At the same time the project is realizing additional investment to the region which would have not been possible in the absence of project activity. The development of project activity would contribute significantly towards infrastructure development of the region which ultimately leads to rural area development. The project activity evacuating power to the nearest regional grid would lead to improvement of electricity availability as the electricity is fed into a deficit grid, whilst working together with local communities and governments to push a further development of local infra infrastructure development.

Project verification

This project is verified by Gold Standard. Gold Standard was established in 2003 by WWF and other international NGOs to ensure projects that reduced carbon emissions featured the highest levels of environmental integrity and also contributed to sustainable development.
