28th International Training Course on
29th November - 15th December 2023

With the rising concerns on climate change, countries are under pressure to turn to Renewable Energy (RE) sources and reduce CO2 emissions. Amongst RE sources, Wind energy has proved to be a highly successful energy option and 906 GW has been installed worldwide by end of year 2022. Earth’s commercially viable wind power potential is estimated to be huge and only very few countries are using wind power at a large scale. Lack of skilled human resources at various stages of deployment.

NIWE, Chennai, India, being first of its kind institution in Asia, perhaps in developing countries, has responsibilities to address this issue. NIWE has contributed for diffusion of wind energy as one of the primary energy sources in India. India, over the years, has been a trend-setting nation with regard to wind power utilization. Decades of concerted efforts have started to yield gratifying results and today, Wind power with an installed capacity of 43940 MW contributes 10.3 % of the total Indian energy mix of 423359 MW and stands fourth in terms of installed wind power capacity worldwide as on July 2023. With this vast experience, India can incorporate lessons learnt from its own experience to foster growth elsewhere in the globe. NIWE has so far successfully organized 45 international and 55 national training courses and trained over 3000 professionals from 102 countries. In this context, a three weeks Interna-tional Training course is scheduled by NIWE under ITEC programme sponsored by Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) with the support of Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India.

Course Syllabus

The course will offer a good foundation on the principles of engineering behind wind energy technology. The course will addresses all aspects of Wind Power starting from introduction to wind and its technol-ogy, wind resource assessment, installation and commissioning, operation and maintenance of wind farms, financial and policy aspects along with testing and certification of wind turbines. Additionally, visit to wind farms and manufacturing facility is scheduled to give a complete picture of the know-how and how to go about setting up financially viable wind farm projects.

  • The prime objective is to transfer knowledge and special skills to the international participants on wind energy.
  • To build skilled human resource so that there will be advancement of wind energy in the partici-pating country.
  • To provide an invaluable platform for exchange of professional and cultural experiences among diverse participants.
