National Institute of Wind Energy was established by the union Ministry of New and Renewable Energy at Chennai in 1998.
NIWE, a knowledge based institution having high quality and dedication which offers services and seeks to find total solutions for the wind energy sector. It supports the wind turbine industry in achieving and sustaining quality such that products of the highest quality and reliability are installed, harnessing all energy available in the wind. NIWE will strongly support the wind turbine industry in developing the know-how and know-why and promoting export of products and services.
NIWE also provide helping hands to analyse and assess wind resources based on the data available from various sources and prepare wind energy density maps / wind atlas / reference wind data.
Wind power forecasting portal is proposed to serve as the focused point for wind power development in India, for promoting and accelerating the proper utilization of wind energy and to support the growing wind power sector in the country.
It will helps in monitoring the field performance of wind power systems, sub-systems and components, effectively utilize this feedback for fulfillment of the above objective and issue of certification, establish and update the data bank on a continuous basis and serve as information Center for selective dissemination. along with this promotion of wind energy systems in development and commercialization including stand-alone systems.
