  Replacement Market to Drive BTG Demand
While the government is bullish on capacity additions to meet the rising energy demand, the focus is clearly shifting from thermal to renewable energy. On one hand, the government is harping on the excessive capacity addition during the 12th Plan Period, on the other, it is taking a giant leap in building renewable energy capacity.

The Indian pump industry is growing at an annual CAGR of ~10 per cent - which is higher than the international CAGR average of ~6 per cent - due to the surge in infrastructure development, growth in agriculture and other water intensive industries.

UDAY brings laudable progress in operational parameters
The takeover of the financial liabilities of the power distribution companies (discoms) by the state governments has brought in huge benefits to the cost structure of the discoms.

Meeting AT&C loss target a challenge for UP & Rajasthan
Under UDAY, progress in participation in terms of signing of MoUs and implementation of the scheme with respect to debt take-over/ refinancing has been satisfactory so far. Nonetheless, ability to reduce aggregate technical & commercial (AT&C) loss in line with targets as well as adequate tariff hike by SERCs will be critical for distribution utilities which have weak financial position, going forward so as to ensure sustained financial turnaround.

Under Ind AS, Financial Statements Will Have A Face Off
The power sector in India is highly regulated, with continuing regulator's involvement in pricing, security of supply and extensively capital intensive. Till 1991, the whole infrastructure sector (of which power is a part) was primarily under government ownership, but due to severe foreign exchange crisis and a lack of capital for expanding infrastructure capacity, the Indian government allowed private foreign and Indian investments in the sector.
