Cooler times await wind power equipment firms over Centre's backing 19.4.2018 Business Standard: News Now
With clarity on the wind energy auction pipeline and ratification of power purchase agreements (PPAs) helping improve their order book, renewable energy (RE) firms, especially wind power equipment makers, are attracting the attention of analysts and investors.
