“Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association (IWTMA) welcomes the budget presented by the honorable Finance Minister Mr. Arun Jaitely. As a professional stakeholder body, we expected that budget will definitely provide some sops to give impetus to the Renewable Energy Sector especially Wind Energy. The Wind Energy in India is still under development stage and needs support of the Government so as to contribute to the goal laid down by the Government. There was a need to rationalize Service Tax and at least some reforms and policies should have been introduced that could have helped us in our road plan for the goal of achieving 60GW by2022.”
IWTMA is founder member of GWEC, Brussels. Under this banner IWTMA conducts a biennial and international event and exhibition and conference to bring all stakeholders under one roof over a three day event. Two successful events are completed and next one is planned in 2014. This perhaps is the largest event and series of conference deliberation and transacting business and more importantly creating awareness to the public on the importance of wind energy to achieve energy security. IWTMA has been participating in fairs in Europe – Husum, EWEA in Brussels and AWEA in United States.
Global Wind Day is celebrated every year across the globe on June 15th. IWTMA has promoted a number of events involving the school children, concerts with wind instruments, creating the message of wind energy and have a brand called Vaayu Vandhanam. Times of India have co-partnered with IWTMA in this venture in 2012.
A number of IWTMA members as per their corporate policy have undertaken many activities of Corporate Social Responsibility to address the have-nots. It is a matter of pride that the wind energy projects are in the rural sector, providing infrastructure developments like roads, schools, colleges, hotels, eateries, small business, contract and services.
It will not be a statement of exaggeration that the source of wind energy is truly a “Power Forever”.
