    Reports Outline Wind Energy Study Findings from University of Petroleum and Energy Studies (A Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process-based Analysis for Prioritization of Barriers To Offshore Wind Energy)

    May 13, 2022 - Energy Daily News


      2022 MAY 12 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Energy Daily News -- Current study results on Energy - Wind Energy have been published. According to news reporting from Uttarakhand, India, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, “Offshore wind energy is an essential component of the climate system and plays a crucial role in addressing climate change. India has a coastline of seven thousand kilometres and a National offshore wind energy policy; however, the installed capacity of offshore wind energy is yet to start, signalling the existence of significant barriers.”

      The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, “The specific objective of this study is to develop a framework for identifying and categorizing the barriers to the growth of offshore wind energy in India. The study prioritizes these barriers using a multi-criteria decision-making approach and sensitivity analysis for robustness. Barriers listed in the technical category emerged through analysis as the significant barriers to the growth of offshore wind energy in India, which includes grid-connection challenges, inadequate technology, lack of servicing and maintenance facilities, inadequate testing and commissioning, cable installation challenges, lack of energy storage, and lack of offshore wind zones. Financial barriers are categorized as the second most crucial barrier: initial capital, credit accessibility, inadequate subsidies, power pricing scheme, immature offshore engineering market, insurance, and imperfect feed-in tariff mechanism. It is followed by social, institutional, geographical, and supply chain barriers.”

      According to the news reporters, the research concluded: “Regulatory and political barriers stand on the last rank and have the most negligible influence on offshore wind energy in India.”

      This research has been peer-reviewed.
