The tremendous pace of wind power development in India continues. Wind capacity reached 300 MW by the end of March, according to the Minister for Non Conventional Energy Sources, S Krishna Kumar, compared with about 100 MW a year ago. The country is now the fourth largest user of wind energy, after the US, Denmark and Germany. Indian spending on renewables during the past financial year, from March 1994 to March 1995, was INR 15 billion -- well in excess of the budgetary provision of INR 2.25 billion, says Krishna Kumar. In the previous fiscal year, 1993-94, total spending on renewables was INR 6 billion.
