Energy is the prime mover of economic growth and is vital to the sustenance of a modern economy. Future economic growth crucially depends on the long-term availability of energy from sources that are affordable, accessible and environmentally friendly. During the last few decades a number of governments have started to increase their focus on clean and renewable energy sources. Wind energy is one of the vital inputs for the social and economic development of India. It supplies affordable, inexhaustible energy to the economy. The growth of renewable energy has been fuelled by increased awareness of both public and private entrepreneurship in wind energy conversion system. This technical research paper deals with a mission to combat unemployment and improve urban environment with the help of entrepreneurship in wind energy conversion systems in India.
