Competitive Bidding for Wind Projects 2018-2023 -


The "Competitive
Bidding for Wind Projects 2018"
report has been added to's

The past year and half have been quite eventful for the wind power
section for a number of reasons; the discontinuation of generation-based
incentives (GBIs), the phase-out of the accelerated depreciation (AD)
benefit starting April 1, 2017 and the replacement of he feed-in tariff
(FiT) mechanism with competitive bidding.

On the one hand, the withdrawal of GBIs and the AD benefit led to the
highest-ever wind capacity addition (about 5.5 GW) in 2016-2017, while
on the other, the transition from FiTs to auctions led to the discovery
of all new wind tariffs of sub-Rs 2.50 per kWh.

Already, five auctions have been conducted by the Solar Energy
Corporation of India (SECI) and two state nodal agencies while many more
are lined up for the coming year.

As more capacity gets auctioned, new trends are emerging in the Indian
wind power space.

The overall industry structure is changing and the funding scenario is
also maturing with new financing instruments being explored by players.

The policy and regulatory framework is also evolving to accommodate as
well as facilitate sector growth.
