Adequate Generation Capacity available to meet the electricity demand in the country: Shri R. K. Singh, Union Power & NRE Minister


51843.5 MW capacity (Thermal, Gas, Hydro, Nuclear) under construction; 22840 MW additional coal based thermal capacity planned by 2030: Shri R. K. Singh, Union Power & NRE Minister

Posted On: 27 JUL 2023 7:06PM by PIB Delhi

The consumption of electricity has increased in the country during the last three years and the current year. The details of all India Power Supply Position in the country in terms of Energy during the last three years and current year (up-to June, 2023) is given at Annexure-I. There is adequate generation capacity to meet the demand of the country. in order to meet the increasing demand of power, 18 numbers of coal based thermal power projects having total capacity of 25440 MW, one (1) gas based thermal power project having capacity of 370 MW and 42 numbers of hydro-electric projects (above 25 MW) having total capacity of 18033.5 MW are under construction in the country as on 30th June 2023. Further, Nuclear capacity totalling to 8000 MW is under various stages of construction. Also, 22840 MW additional coal based thermal capacity has been planned by 2030, out of which 15300 MW will be under Central Sector and 7540 MW under State Sector. Details are given at Annexure-II

As per the Electricity Act, 2003, generation is a de-licensed activity and any generating company may establish, operate and maintain a generating station without obtaining a license under this Act if it complies with the technical standards related to connectivity with the grid. The concurrence of the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) is required only in case of setting up of hydro-generating station.

Two (02) numbers of coal based Thermal Power Project in Central Sector (NTPC) having capacity of 3720 MW (two units of 660 MW each in North Karanpura TPS and three units of 800 MW each in Patratu TPS are under construction in the State of Jharkhand. Further, Koderma Thermal Power Project having capacity of 1600 MW is planned in the State of Jharkhand by DVC.
