India could add almost 24GW of new wind power by 2026 with supportive policies and “an all-hands on deck, literally non-stop” national push that includes unlocking the potential of offshore wind, according to a new outlook for the sector.

The Asian giant’s current installed capacity of around 41GW (on government data) is “dwarfed” by potential for 600GW onshore at 120-metre hub heights, plus 174GW of fixed-bottom and floating, according to the India Wind Energy Market Outlook 2026 launched by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and research group MEC+.
