Life cycle energy and carbon footprint analysis of large MW scale grid connected wind power systems in India
Department of Energy Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, India
The centralized grid is the main electrical supply to the country. About 80% of the installed generation capacity is fossil fuel fired power plants, though there is increase in share of renewable generation over the years. India has significant wind potential, and a major share in the renewable generation of the country. The energy and carbon footprint sustainability of wind power systems in Indian conditions is the focus of this research. This paper presents a study of large grid connected wind storage systems with reference to the cradle to grave primary energy requirements and carbon emissions in an Indian scenario.
