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 743 GW worldwide by the end of December 2020. It is estimated that viable wind power potential across globe is 72 TW, which is five 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 and 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% (39247.05 MW) of the total Indian energy mix of 382 GW and stands fourth in the world in terms of installed wind power capacity as on March 2021. With this vast experi-ence, we have an obligation to disseminate the knowledge learnt to foster growth of wind energy across globe. In this context, a ten days Online International Training Course is scheduled by NIWE under e-ITEC programme sponsored by Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Government of India. NIWE has so far trained more than 2600 professionals from 98 countries by conducting 45 national and 39 international training courses.
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 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 duration will be 10 days from 22nd November to 3rd December 2021.
The venue for the programme will be the online platform through video conferencing facility [Microsoft Teams (MS Teams)].
The course will be useful for anyone involved in wind energy or those who are looking for an introduction. Persons from the following ﬁelds will ﬁnd this course very relevant.
The online programme will offer a good foundation on the principles of engineering behind wind energy technology and power generation & distribution along with ﬁnancial viability and entrepreneur opportunities. The course would give a picture of complete know-how and pave the way to go about setting up ﬁnancially viable wind farm projects. Participants after attending the programme will have the complete overview about wind and its technology as well as Indian wind power development, which will enlighten the participants to know about the wind sector, potential and job availability as well as the government schemes, policies and supports. This online course will boost the participant’s interest working towards wind energy sector and will create the required skilled / trained man power for fostering the growth of wind power sector.
There is NO COURSE FEE and is fully funded by Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Government of India under e-ITEC programme.
