.ppt   POWER SCENARIO OF INDIA.ppt (Size: 2.07 MB / Downloads: 906)


Presented In
The Indian economy uses a variety of energy sources, both commercial and non-commercial. Fuel wood,

animal waste and agricultural residue are the traditional or `non-commercial' sources of energy that

continue to meet the bulk of the rural energy requirements even today. However, the share of these

fuels in the primary energy supply has declined from over 70% in the early 50's to a little over 30%

as of today.The traditional fuels are gradually getting replaced by the "commercial fuels" such as

coal, lignite, petroleum products, natural gas and electricity.

As the electricity is one of the most important input in the Industrial Sector, the development of

the nation is generally compared by the per capita consumption of electricity. In the developing

countries, the indicator can not be related directly with the average development of the nation.
The use of Electricity is basically done on following accounts : 1) Industrial (2) Commercial &

Residential lighting (3) Agriculture and Irrigation. In developing countries, 30% dwellings are yet

to be provided with electricity supply.

Whereas, in the developed foreign countries, the automation of industries is mainly responsible for

higher consumption of Electrical power. The use of domestic electrical equipment is also

comparatively very high in developed countries.
Harnessed energy has become a symbol of growth and instrument for development. Electric power

particularly the hydro is among the cleanest and renewable energy input for economic activity,

domestic and civic conveniences, climate control, communication and technology. The Ministry of

Power has set on objective of providing "Power for all by 2012". This will entail electrification of

all villages by 2007 and of all households by 2012.
As you are kindly aware, electricity is one of the key infrastructure elements for the economic

growth of the country.  India since independence have made big strides in the power sector but with

per capita consumption of around 600 Kwh per year, we are amongst lowest rungs of the countries in

this vital indicator of economic and social development and power cuts are still resorted to even in

metro cities what to talk of rural areas.  Indian economy, therefore, desperately needs a better

functioning power sector which can meet the market demand for quality power at a globally competent

The infrastructure would need the availability of assured and quality power at affordable price

through reliable and adequate generation, transmission and distribution facilities.

Power generation in India began more than a century ago in 1898 when the first hydro power unit was

set up at Darjeeling. When India achieved freedom in 1947, the country had an installed capacity of

1,360 MW.
The present installed (conventional fuel) generating capacity in the country is 1,18,780 MW. The

share of hydro with 32,370 MW capacity is about 27%. Thermal accounts for maximum share of 70% with

83,100 MW. It comprises of 63,374 MW from coal, Multi Fuel 1744 MW Lignite Based 3455 MW and 13451.9

MW from Gas and liquid fuel and 1,075.1 MW from Diesel. The share of Nuclear is about 2.7% with 3310

MW. The attainment is significant. However what we achieved in over 50 years will need to be

attained now in nearly 10 years.
The present annual energy requirement in 2002-03 was 5,45,674 MU, of which only 4,97,589 MU were

available, leaving a shortfall of 8.8%. While the peaking requirement was 81,492 MW in 2002-03, a

peak of 71,547 MW only could be met, leaving a shortage of 12.2%.
The 16th Electric Power Survey (EPS) carried out by the Central Electricity Authority has project and implimentationed

a peak demand of 1,15,705 MW and an energy requirement of 7,19,097 MU by the end of 10th Plan while

the requirement by the end of 11th Plan has been project and implimentationed as 9,75,222 MU and 1,57,107 MW



Accordingly at the end of the 10th Plan, an additional capacity of 55,158 MW is needed. However it

is likely that a capacity addition of 41,110 MW would only be feasible during the period keeping in

view the financial level of the power sector and preparedness of project and implimentations. The effort is to close

the deficit by the end of the 11th Plan to ensure "Power for all by 2012".

The Indian power system requirement had been assessed to need a hydro power and

thermal / nuclear power mix in the ratio of 40.60 for flexibility in system operation depending on

typical load pattern. The present ratio is 25:75 which needs to be corrected immediately to meet

peak load requirements as well as system and frequency stability


The estimated hydro potential in the country is 1,50,000 MW (corresponding to 84,044 MW at 60% load

factor) out of which only 26,910 MW amounting to 18% of the total potential has been harnessed.

While 14,393 MW hydro capacity is planned to be added in 10th Plan, action has been taken to ensure

that more than 20,000 MW of hydro capacity is added during the 11th Plan period.

Energy Scenario up to the Year 2020

The population of the country, which is likely to cross the 970x106 mark by the end of 1998, may

exceed 1315x106 by the end of the year 2019-20. Based on the present trends available in the rate of

urbanization, the share of urban population is project and implimentationed to increase from 25.38% in 1990-91 to 43%

in the year 2020. The growth in GDP and its structural changes will have an effect on the demand for

energy and the energy supply mix in future. The GDP, which grew at a rate of 3.5% on an average up

to the 70's, has averaged more than 5.6% per annum growth in the 80's.
The GDP grew at the rate of over 6% per annum during the Seventh Five Year Plan period as against a

target of 5% per annum. The Eighth Plan had set a target of 5.6% per annum growth in GDP and the

likely achievement is project and implimentationed to exceed well over 6% per annum. It is assumed in the present paper

that these trends in GDP growth are likely to continue in future as well. The high rate of economic

growth is likely to be accompanied by an increasing per capita income and changes in life styles.
This will have an effect on the energy demand as well. In view of the rising awareness in regard to

the environmental protection and conservation, the future growth in energy sector must consider such

concerns in order to develop in a manner which is environmentally benign. The key issues facing a

developing country like India which have energy implications are, therefore, rising population, need

for economic growth, access to adequate commercial energy supplies and the financial resources

needed to achieve this, rational energy pricing regime, improvements in energy efficiency of both

the energy supply and consumption, technological up gradation, a matching R&D base and environmental
