has been projected
21644 Terra watts hours in 1990
64870 terra watts hours in 2030
Small hydro power plant
Thermal power plant has the highest
proportional share of electricity generation in
1990 and 2030 projected data.
Continuous expansion of the generation of
electricity from thermal power plant is
expected until 2030.
Nuclear power plant industry has the second
highest proportional share in 1990.
Share of nuclear electricity is expected to
grow from 35% in 1990 to 40% in 2030.
