Improved electricity availability through wind power

To achieve the energy transition, the share of renewable energies must be drastically increased. Just as in other countries, India is also relying on wind power, among other things, to achieve this. Contributing to this, the project activities include the installation of 30 wind turbines in the district Yagdir in the Indian state of Karnataka.

The turbines, which are located in the villages Chandreki, Kamalanagar and Borbanda, generate about 141,912 MWh of renewable energy each year that is fed into the Indian grid. This not only leads to an improved availability of electricity but also replaces parts of the fossil fuel-based energy. By that, about 138,740 tonnes of CO2 emissions are saved annually. In addition to the environmental benefits, the project also creates jobs for local people.

How wind energy contributes to climate action

As the name suggests, wind turbines use the power of the wind to generate energy. During this process, a generator located inside the wind turbine converts kinetic energy into electrical energy. As energy is still mainly generated from fossil fuels in many areas around the world, clean wind energy can replace some of this fossil, high-emission energy and verifiably save CO2 emissions.

In most cases, the sustainably generated electricity from the wind power projects is fed into a regional power grid, which diversifies the power supply and improves energy security in regions that are frequently affected by power shortages and outages. A project often creates increased job opportunities for the local population and the area can be used for additional activities, such as agriculture. Wind power projects make an important contribution to a clean energy supply worldwide and contribute to sustainable development with respect to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Wind energy projects in the ClimatePartner portfolio are registered with international standards.
