In FY13, India missed the green energy target despite strong contribution from solar. But lapse of incentive scheme and uncertainties over policy framework hit the capacity addition in the wind sector. The wind energy based capacity addition during FY 2013 had fallen sharply on account of discontinuation of tax depreciation benefits, lack of clarity on continuation of generation based incentives (GBI), besides issues related to grid connectivity & evacuation of wind power in states like Tamil Nadu. Recovery in wind capacity addition in FY2014 was aided by the re-introduction of generation-based incentive (GBI) scheme in September 2013, according to rating agency Icra.
