RE camp has been attained its main objective. It created awareness and provided a good foundation on the principles of engineering behind wind energy technology and its operations in the field during all the seasons. The camp was very helpful to the participants to facilitate a valuable forum for dialogue and open exchange of views and experiences with professionals.

The participants were got knowledge about the wind energy technology, wind resource assessment, aerodynamic technology, wind components, wind electrical generator and operations of wind turbine through the class room lectures. They were also got added knowledge practically, through field visit of wind monitoring station, wind farm, research and testing facilities of large and small wind turbines and substation. Participation certificates were distributed to the participants at the end of the RE camp.

The structure and organization of RE camp was highly appreciated by the participants. The participants were very much satisfied by the quality of the content they got from the training and expressed thanks to NIWE and MNRE for arranging the free RE camp under the programme of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.
