Energy is a significant factor in socio-economic development of nation’s growth. Conventional energy sources based on hydrocarbon oil, coal, and natural gas have proven to be highly effective tools of economic progress, but at the same time causes huge carbon emissions, which leads to harm the environment and to human health. Renewable sources of energy such as solar, wind etc. are very noteworthy in the context of growing concern about sustainable energy supplies and protection of the environment from adverse effect of fossil fuel. Wind energy is a clean, non- polluting, environmental friendly renewable resource. In India, the wind power generation has gained a high level of attention and acceptability. This paper presents the ways in which India has already supported the growth of wind energy, its current status and achievements. The diffusion of wind energy generation in the potential states of India is also analysed.
