The objective of the project was to reassess the RE potential of Tamil Nadu and prepare a roadmap for accelerated RE deployment in the state.

WISE used the Geographic Information System (GIS) with high-resolution datasets, wind resources, solar resources, land use and elevation, and assessed the state’s potential. To disseminate wider reach of the GIS results, WISE also developed an interactive web portal that allowed users to review and tag potential project sites identified in the GIS analysis. WISE prepared a comprehensive action plan for RE development to provide policy/regulatory assistance and evaluate the long-term monetary, social, and environmental benefits, thus striving to make Tamil Nadu an energy-efficient and energy secure ‘green’ state.

The project was supported by Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation, New Delhi, CII (southern region), and the nodal renewable energy agency in the state, the Tamil Nadu Energy Development Agency.
