Worldwide, wind energy is accepted as one of the most developed, cost-effective and proven renewable energy technologies to meet increasing electricity demands in a sustainable manner. While onshore wind energy technologies have reached a stage of large scale deployment and have become competitive with fossil fuel based electricity generation with supportive policy regimes across the world, exploitation of offshore wind energy is yet to reach a comparable scale.

India has achieved significant success in the onshore wind power development with about 24 GW of wind energy capacity already installed and generating power. With introduction of this policy, the Government is attempting to replicate the success of offshore wind power development in the offshore wind power development.
