    Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) is making efforts to set up a National Offshore Wind Energy Agency to explore wind generation potential in the offshore areas. At a day-long  national consultation, Farooq Abdullah, Minister for New and Renewable Energy said that the potential of generating power through wind energy in the offshore areas was immense, and the ministry will approach the union cabinet soon for a decision.

    Mr.Abdullah expressed hope that the finance ministry will restore the benefits of accelerated depreciation for wind power producers in the interim budget to be presented next month.
