Renewable Energy in particular Wind and Solar has become mainstay in meeting energy needs having achieved grid parity in term of costs as well as technical requirement. The wind energy has proved a highly successful energy option with installation of over 560 GW worldwide by end of December 2018. It is estimated that viable wind power potential across globe is 72 TW, which is four times more than the current World's total energy demand. The major wind generator installation is in USA, some of the European countries and Asian countries like China, India and other countries catching up with the rest. Lack of skilled human resource has been one of the main barriers that hinders wind and other renewable energy integration.
The National Institute of Wind Energy (NIWE), under the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India has pioneered in promoting wind energy and has contributed for promotion of wind energy as one of the primary energy sources in India. Decades of concerted eﬀorts have started to yield gratifying results and today, Wind power contributes 10.6% (35625.97 MW) of the total Indian energy mix of 356100.19 MW and stands fourth in terms of installed wind power capacity worldwide as on March 2019. Wind Resource Assessment is the ﬁrst and foremost activity before the development of wind farm planning. NIWE has very good experience and expertise in Wind Resource Assessment activities and has established about 900 Wind Monitoring Stations all over the country and published Indian Wind Atlas. With this vast experience, we have an obligation to disseminate the knowledge learnt to foster growth of wind energy across globe. In this context, a four weeks International Training Course is scheduled by NIWE under ITEC programme sponsored by Ministry of External Aﬀairs (MEA), Government of India. NIWE to its credit has successfully conducted 34 international training courses, wherein 693 professionals from 88 countries have been trained and has also conducted 31 national training courses and trained 1386 professionals.
The course content for the training has been carefully thought out syllabus with specific subject experts giving lectures and going through specific case studies such that, at the end of the course considerable useful knowledge transfer is perceived.
The course will address the following aspects:
The course duration will be 24 days from 28th August to 20th september 2019.
The venue for the programme will be the Conference Hall of National Institute of Wind Energy, Chennai, India.
The resource persons for this training course will be NIWE Engineers, industry professionals, academicians and other national experts who have signiﬁcantly contributed for wind energy development in the country.
The course will be useful for anyone involved in wind energy or those who are looking for an introduction particularly Wind Resource Assessment. Persons from the following ﬁelds will ﬁnd this course very relevant.
The course will offer a good foundation on the principles of engineering behind wind energy technology and detailed about Wind Resource Assessment. The course would facilitate an invaluable forum for dialogue and open exchange of views and experiences with Indian professionals. The course would give a picture of complete know-how and pave the way to complete the country wide Wind Resource Assessment and also to bring out the Wind Atlas for the Country.
There is NO COURSE FEE and is fully funded by Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Government of India under ITEC programme. The funding includes to and fro air fare, local travels, accommodation, living allowance and book allowance. Accommodation provided will be of international standards.
