Test centre inaugurated at last

The much awaited Centre for Wind Energy Technology has been inaugurated in Chennai by M. Kannappan, the union minister of state for non conventional energy. Slated to open in April, it will be responsible for design and technical aspects of wind turbines built in India (Windpower Monthly, October 1998). The centre will serve as a research and development wing for the Ministry of Non Conventional Energy Sources (MNES), which has given $4 million in funding. The centre's turbine test certification site, which was built with a $2.2 million grant from Danish overseas aid agency Danida, is also scheduled for inauguration in April in Tamil Nadu (Windpower Monthly, November 1996). "Efforts will have to be stepped up in India as it has fallen to fifth place from fourth among the world's top wind generating nations," says N.N. Mookherjee of MNES.
