25th National Training Course on
21st to 23rd February 2024

Renewable Energy in particular Wind and Solar has become the 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 installed capacity of 1TW worldwide by June 2023. 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 like USA, European countries and Asian countries - China and India. Even though a good potential of wind is available in many countries, the wind power project is hindering because of the lack of skilled human resources at various stages of deployment.

The National Institute of Wind Energy (NIWE), under the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), 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 about 10.38% (44183.63 MW) of the total Indian energy mix of 425406.47 MW and stands fourth in terms of installed wind power capacity worldwide as on September 2023. Today, India is a major player in the global wind energy market with a sustainable annual growth rate. The key factors responsible for this phenomenal success were the policy support from the Central, especially by the MNRE and the technical support extended by NIWE. NIWE has already successfully conducted 57 national and 46 international training courses and trained 2094 and 1036 professionals respectively from 102 countries. With the vast experiences in conducting training courses, NIWE has an obligation to disseminate the right knowledge learnt to foster growth of wind energy not only in India but also across the globe. In this connection, the 25th National Training Course is proposed to address all aspects of wind energy starting from introduction to wind technology, wind resource assessment, installation & commissioning and operation maintenance of wind farms along with financial aspects and testing & certification of wind turbines in a focussed manner.


The objective of the training course is to transfer knowledge and special skills to the wind energy personnel active in technical and operational fields as well as those who are looking for entry in wind energy sector. The idea is to provide specialised training and knowledge to industry, utilities, project developers, investors, consulting firms, technical and academic institutions, students, bankers and various Central and State governmental implementing agencies. Moreover, the course will provide an invaluable platform for dialogue and open exchange of views and experiences.


The lectures often include exercises and case studies to stimulate active participation and dialogue. This training course is intended to cover a wide variety of key topic such as

  • Introduction to wind energy, evolution & developments
  • Government policies and supportive schemes & programme
  • Wind resource assessment
  • Design of carefully vetted wind farming projects
  • Installation & commissioning of wind farms
  • Grid Integration
  • O&M aspects of wind farms
  • Hybrid systems

The duration of this Training Course is 3 days encompassing presentations, detailed lectures with case studies, success stories along with exercises and visits to laboratories. The dates for the training is from 21st to 23rd February 2024.


The targeted participation strength would be around 30 to 40 persons. The course will be useful for anyone who is involved in wind energy field and those who are looking for an introduction. Persons in the following areas will find this course very relevant

  • Academic and R&D Institutions
  • State Nodal Agencies (SNA's)
  • Wind Turbine Manufacturing Companies
  • Suppliers and Distributors
  • Project Developers and Investors
  • Independent Power Producers (IPP)
  • Consulting Firms
  • Financial & Insurance Institutions
  • Government Organizations

The course will offer a good foundation on the principles of engineering behind wind energy technology, power generation & distribution along with financial viability and entrepreneur opportunities. It would also outline the Government policies and wind energy scenario in India. It would facilitate an invaluable platform for dialogue and open exchange of views and sharing experience among participants with experts in the field. It would give a picture of the know-how and pave the way to go about setting up a financially viable wind farm project.


NIWE scientists / engineers will be the resource persons for the training course.


The venue for the programme would be the Conference Hall of National Institute of Wind Energy, Chennai.
