23rd National Training Course on "WIND ENERGY TECHNOLOGY"
12th - 16th March 2018
BrochureApplication form

    The renewable energy arena, ’Wind Energy’ showed its remarkable growth in the past two decades, that can create pollution free and environment friendly atmosphere. India, over the years, has been a trend-setting nation with regard to Wind Power Utilization and decades of concerted efforts have started to yield gratifying results. The Indian Wind Energy programme has been very successful in commercializing wind energy and India stands 4th in the World in terms of installed wind power capacity with 32508.17 MW as on June 2017, contributes to around 56% of the grid-connected renewable energy power of the country. The wind energy market is continuing to grow steadily in India along with the rest of the world. India is now one of the global manufacturing hubs for wind turbines with more than 20 large wind turbine manufacturers producing capacity ranging from 225 kW to 3000 kW and several small wind turbine manufacturers producing capacity ranging from 0.3 kW to 50 kW.

    Indian Wind Industry faces serious shortage of skilled man power to meet the huge demand of this booming industry. Completely Indigenous and low-cost wind turbine design remains a challenge due to non availability of skilled human resource and research infrastructure. To assure timely evolution of wind industry and to meet India's demands and development of rural areas, human resource development is a matter of immense interest. NIWE is continuously addressing these issues by organizing national & international training courses since 2004 to produce quality human resource for Wind Industry. Till now, 1211 national and 478 international participants were trained by NIWE through its 48 training courses (24 national and 24 international training courses including special training courses). All the training courses have been well received by the participants and appreciated for its wide coverage of interdisciplinary syllabus, quality of lectures and hospitality. With this vast experience and its pre-eminent position, NIWE has all the knowledge and facility to undertake such an important task. With this background, we are happy to announce the 23rd National Training Course on "Wind Energy Technology" to provide complete overview about wind energy technology.

Course Objectives

    The objectives of the training course are:

  • To transfer knowledge and required special skills to the wind energy personnel, active in technical and operational fields.
  • To build personnel to meet the huge demand of skilled human resource in India, and specifically to enable extensive research and evolve innovative strategies.
  • To provide an invaluable platform for exchange of professional experience among diverse participants from all parts of the country.

    At the end of this course, participants will have strong understanding on fundamentals of wind energy technology along with applications, standards, certification, economics & policies and leverage on the research that continues to shape this rapidly evolving discipline.

Methodology & Course Outline

    The course content for the training is a carefully thoughtout syllabus with specific subject experts giving lectures and class room exercises. The course is designed to address all aspects of wind power harnessing starting from wind resources assessment to project implementation and operations & maintenance in a focused manner.
