1000 MW offshore wind tender finally out-III: Why it makes sense for Indian oil & gas companies to jump in
Apr 12: The clean energy narrative continues to change contours every now and then.
8Till sometime ago, a diversification away from dirty fuels to clearer energy was stated to be an imperative for the oil & gas industry but on account of rising demand for fossil fuels, higher oil prices and the ascent of President Trump, the green drive has been put on the backburner.
8Eventually however, for oil & gas companies, given the compulsions of global warming and the determined effort towards decarbonization, there must always be a lookout for greener assets.
8In this context, the website had argued earlier that for large Indian oil & gas companies, exploring the possibility of setting up offshore wind projects seems like a good entry point for some of them. Some of our companies such as RIL and ONGC operate in and around potential sites for offshore wind power assets. The deployment challenges are also similar for oil & gas as well as offshore wind assets. 
8The investment size is large and so is the green windfall.
8The website carries here a full set of templates for an offshore wind farm in India.
8There are no doubt some uncertainties in building such wind farms in India.
8Estimating the levelised cost of energy (LCOE) of an offshore wind farm as well as related economic metrics such as net present value (NPV) or internal rate of return (IRR) will be a challenge due to the range of technical and economic factors in play and their associated uncertainties.
