India, in heavy need of sustainable development on its way to a modern country, is more and more embracing clean technologies such as wind power to feed its growing economy’s need for stable electricity.
This bundle of small and middle sized windfarms not only delivers emission free energy to the grid, the different project owners are also concerned with sustainable development of the rural regions their wind turbines are located in.
Several local and regional programs which are aimed at improving the current health, education and employment situation receive support, providing communities with long term benefits such as scholarships, vocational trainings, and health care. Improvements in local infrastructure such as roads, bridges and access to potable water benefit local living conditions and enable local economies to develop. Thus, the project activity represents a holistic approach to mitigate climate change, contribute to environmental protection, and support rural communities. These activities would not be possible without additional funding from carbon revenues which help the project overcome current risks and hurdles from heavy regulation.
