Two power distribution companies in Andhra Pradesh have launched a tender for 600MW of wind-solar hybrid projects with energy storage.
Prices fell slightly in Germany's most recent tender for onshore wind, but the auction was again undersubscribed, reflecting permitting backlogs and industry caution, the country's wind energy association claimed.
The key drivers of Canada's wind capacity lie in grid decarbonisation, electrification, and corporate procurement, according to the country's wind energy association, CanWEA.
Vestas extended its market share of onshore wind turbines commissioned last year, while the world's total new onshore capacity declined 3%.
