An interview with Nanik Singh, Regional Director – Central America & Caribbean, INNOVENT

Nanik_Singh_BW Nanik Singh, Regional Director – Central America & Caribbean, INNOVENT, answers key questions about wind power in Central America.

Nanik Singh will be speaking at the Wind Power Central America Congress in July in Panama.

As an estimation, what do you envisage the potential Wind Power projects pipeline for Wind in Central America over the next 3 years?

In terms of the capacity of the investors & developers in the area I think is possible to have more than 200MW per year of Wind Installed in the region. Nevertheless this capacity will be restricted in terms of the willingness of the government agencies in charge of providing tenders on time or mechanism to incorporate this non-conventional renewable energy into the grid.

What are the 3 top challenges organisations face when looking to develop wind farms in the region?

First will be getting the right in house partner or outside consultant which knows the legal and technical requirements to develop projects accordingly to the specific country in Central America. Second, clear market rules and programed tenders so the developer can plan ahead. Last, grid investment on behalf of the grid operator, so new projects have the opportunity to connect to the grid without curtailing.  Continue reading
