Dont need more coal power units | CEA

The country's peak power demand at the end of the financial year 2021-22 will be 235 GW, down 17 per cent from the estimate made in 2012, CEA has said. With this revision, taking into account the lower-than-estimated economic growth in the five years to March 31 2017, the CEA reckons that the country wouldn't need any more coal-based power stations, other than the 50-GW under-construction capacity, till 2027. The revised estimates, provided in the draft national electricity plan, are also in view of the fact that many thermal power stations in the country are operating at plant load factor (PLF) far below 60%, the commercial viability threshold.
