   Date :08-May-2019

INDIAN Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association (IWTMA) has urged the Government to implement feed-in-tariff (FiT) based bidding for large capacities and set up a five year policy framework to develop 50GW of wind projects and save this struggling industry.
IWTMA in a meeting with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy made certain recommendations including waiver of interstate transmission system (ISTS) charges for captive consumers and FiT policy for less than 25 MW for small domestic investors in states, among others. The recommendations include implementation of FiT and setting up firm policy framework, which will include National Institute of Wind Energy certified three wind zones.
