Highest-growth (power) generation company in the last year (public company- thermal power) - NTPC

NTPC is India's largest energy conglomerate with its roots planted way back in 1975 to accelerate the power development in India. Since then, it has established itself as the dominant power major with its presence in the entire value chain of the power generation business. From fossil fuels, it has forayed into generating electricity via hydro, nuclear and renewable energy sources. This foray will play a major role in lowering its carbon footprint by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. To strengthen its core business, the corporation has diversified into the fields of consultancy, power trading, training of power professionals, rural electrification, ash utilisation and coal mining. NTPC became a Maharatna Company in May 2010, one of the only four companies to be awarded this status. <p></p> <p>NTPC is the market leader in power generation, supplying around 23 per cent of the country's electricity supply and thus, plays a key role in India's economic activity. As a state-owned utility, NTPC's priority is to provide affordable and reliable power and support the country's rapid developing economy. </p> <p> <span style="font-weight: bold;">Operational Highlights</span><br /> -Total generation grew over 6 per cent in FY18 (NTPC Group Generation- 294 BU; NTPC Standalone- 265 BU) and it has further grown at nearly 7.5 per cent in Q1 FY19. These numbers indicate a substantial growth in the energy demand of the country.<br /> - Power projects of 3,478 MW (including 910 MW through JV and Subsidiary Companies) were commissioned.<br /> - Declared 4,423 MW Power Projects (including subsidiaries) on commercial generation including 250 MW of solar, 50 MW of wind and 8 MW of small hydro projects.<br /> - PLF of 77.90 per cent as against all India PLF of 60.72 per cent with Talcher Thermal station of the company recording 93.820 per cent PLF. <br /> - 12 stations (including JVs) were in the top 25 in the country in terms of PLF. Eight coal-based stations out of 20 commercial stations achieved more than 85 per cent PLF.<br /> - Excellent MoU rating by the Government of India for the year 2016-17.<br /> - Group Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) including CAPEX of JV/ subsidiaries of the company for the year 2017-18 was Rs 310.3 billion.<br /> - Revenue from operations was Rs 834.5 billion and the total revenue was Rs 852 billion. Net Profit after Tax (PAT) was Rs 103.4 billion.<br /> As per its long-term corporate plan, NTPC has targeted to achieve a total installed capacity of 130 GW by 2032, to be implemented through the development of greenfield and brownfield projects, collaborations and acquisitions. The capacity will have a diversified fuel mix comprising 65.4 per cent coal, 4.6 per cent gas, 1.5 per cent nuclear and 28.5 per cent renewable energy sources including hydro. Therefore, by 2032, non-fossil fuel-based generation capacity shall make up nearly 30 per cent of NTPC's portfolio. </p> <p>NTPC envisages enhancing its current presence in consultancy, power trading and ancillary services. It is also planning to make a foray into electric mobility and battery storage, supported by research and development and collaboration with OEM. Inorganic growth opportunities <br /> NTPC is also looking for opportunities for acquisition of power plants, if available at attractive valuations for adding capacity after analysing the technical and financial viability of the project. Considering a huge stranded generation capacity, there is a good scope for consolidation in the sector.</p>
