Renewable energy is fast becoming the buzz word in the international power sector. Countries in Europe, in order to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, are moving towards use of power produced from renewable sources like wind. Wind power is an attractive proposition for India -- it can help meet our Kyoto Protocol targets and reduce noxious emissions. India's dependence on conventional energy continues to drain it economically and irreparably harm public health. India's terrain and geography provides great potential for wind power generation, but it is yet to be tapped.
