However, the report said that should larger volumes of offshore wind be planned, further strategic grid development studies would be necessary to identify possible transmission bottlenecks to wider integration of offshore wind.
More power: The study focussed on Gujarat and Tamil Nadu for identification of potential offshore wind energy zones.
These study results indicate that the onshore grid infrastructure shall be adequate to evacuate offshore wind power most of the time,” according to the report.
The study was conducted on behalf of the FOWIND (Facilitating Offshore Wind in India) consortium.
In Tamil Nadu, 500 MW of offshore wind capacity is considered possible near Manapad, Punnakayal, and Thoothukudi, as per the report.
