Regional, global climatic factors led to drop in India’s wind energy production in Q2-Q3 2020: Analy

Wind power production in India in the second (Q2) and third quarter (Q3) this year saw an unexpected drop due to low wind speeds caused by regional and global meteorological factors, according to an analysis by US-based consultancy firm, ArcVera Renewables.

It added that though variable year-to-year, wind power production in India in the second and third quarter this year was significantly lower than the long-term average production expectations which, based on an analysis of climate records and surface wind observation sites, was a rare event.

“Based on a review of meteorological weather records, the low wind speeds were caused by a combination of regional and global meteorological factors that seldom occur simultaneously, including a persistent high-pressure pattern over northern India and Tibet, and a unique warm sea surface event over the northern Indian Ocean,” said C R Anbalagan, country manager and director-business development at the firm.
