On behalf of the FOWIND project consortium, we are pleased to present our latest Grid Integration Study for Offshore Wind in Gujarat and Tamil Nadu an important outcome of the project. The four-year project aims to put together a roadmap for developing a sustainable and commercially viable offshore wind industry in India. This report addresses the following key question on how to prepare the state power systems to connect offshore wind project in Gujarat and Tamil Nadu? The report first provides an overview of relevant policy and wind industry background. It then addresses the steps necessary to prepare the physical onshore grid for integration of offshore wind projects in Gujarat and Tamil Nadu while also considering the requirements to facilitate new offshore grid development. The report also evaluates how the states in question will ensure stable system operation with increasing penetration of offshore wind and other renewable energy generation. It further provides a review of the existing suite of the most relevant grid codes to ensure that they are suitable for development of offshore wind projects in India.
