Small wind energy systems for rural energy access in Odisha, India

By loading the map you accept the privacy policy of Google.

Despite the huge commercial success that India has achieved in establishing large-scale wind energy systems, the use of small wind energy systems (SWES) is extremely limited and the market is still immature. The project aims to demonstrate that SWES are an effective option for rural electrification in tribal areas of the Kalahandi district of Odisha, India. These SWES will be installed in 3 different communities benefiting 60 tribal and marginalised households. The project will transfer skills and knowhow to local manufacturers and user groups in order that they can produce, operate and maintain small wind turbines. The project is being carried out by Practical Action South Asia Regional Office based in Nepal with its local implementing partner "Gram Vikas" and in close cooperation with local producers and communities for the project design and implementation, and for the dissemination of knowledge learnt from the project.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nt9SMGlrous
