Fifteen zones for the first offshore wind development off India have been identified under a Danish-Indian collaboration that aims to help propel the Asian giant to its goal of 30GW in the water by 2030.

A study pinpointing 14 sites off the southern state of Tamil Nadu and one off Gujarat was unveiled today (Wednesday) by the Centre of Excellence for Offshore Wind and Renewable Energy, a joint initiative between The Danish Energy Agency and The Indian Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).
