Current Scenario inIndia Presently Installed: 185.5GWatt 5th largest in World Per capita consumption:778KWh
At present 300million without electricity! Avg. Per capita consumption of world:2600KWh; 6200Kwh for European Union countries But India:778KWh!!! 35-45% transmission loss(highest in world!!) Power failure, poor regulation
GDP at present:6.9% & expected 7.6% after this fiscal year(2012-13) Stress given on more industry customs duty exemption on imported fuel and lower levy on overseas funds for projects to provide relief to crisis-hit power sector. More private investment. India needs at least $135billion to produce 600-1200GW within next 40 years ,which is urgent. Reduction in power tariff..
Solar power generation park,having 620 MW generation capability, started last week in Gujrat… India’sLargest and one of the largests in Asia…
125 biomass power plants of almost 1300 MW power plant30 solar power plants.3 Nuclear power plants of 2720MW including Kudankulam.More hydro electric power plants
Research Area1.35000 KM^2 Thar desert issufficient in generating 700 to2100GW solar power .It can meetthe increasing demand of modernIndia2. India is suffering from acuteT&D loss of 35% almost. For astandard power system it is 7-8%.Modern technologies shouldbe invented.3.More dependence on Windpower surrounding sea area.
