Wind Energy is variable in nature as it depends on sun, temperature, pressure variations and geography. Wind Energy based power generation poses problems in grid integration due to its fluctuating nature.  Hence, it becomes necessary to forecast the wind power generation which is necessary for generation scheduling. The wind power forecasting helps the wind farm operator to convey reliable generation data to the load dispatch centre to facilitate generation scheduling needed for stable operation of Grid.  This paper summarises some of the developments in the field of Wind power forecasting which may help researchers in formulation of a wind power forecasting model. Increasing wind energy penetration avoids carbon emission whereas wind power forecasting facilitates optimum utilization of wind resource.
