Staying On Top
Nobuaki Kurumatani took office as the first Chairman and CEO of Toshiba Corporation to be appointed from outside the company in over 50 years.
Expecting thrust to USC technology in new projects
Mainly, super critical and ultra super critical (USC) technologies. Toshiba has very good experienced with ultra super critical technology. We have earlier set up a plant in Japan. So we have introduced USC technology in power generation. In India, the first example is the Harduaganj project in Uttar Pradesh.
The Indian power sector has been advancing on the technological front
India at present is more dependent on fossil fuels to power its fast growing economy. Compared to developed nations India has not fully explored its hydro power potential and its share in the generation mix is very less when compared to other conventional sources.
Hydropower | Too slow to be steady
Recent times have seen a welcome focus on harnessing renewable energy sources for power generation, worldwide. India too, has taken the challenge of curbing its carbon emissions head on, setting a humongous target of generating 175 GW through renewable sources by 2022.
Low input cost will reduce generation cost
Earlier there was Mega Power Policy where you could have benefits of duty exemption for large sized Hydro Power plant. Such policy should be retained till appropriate technology for a certain capacitys hydro power projects are available in India under Make In India concept.
India will soon embrace quality, like Japan did
Basically, all markets are the same, with a few exceptions. Many markets are based on the specifications and based on the bidding, then some rules are set, otherwise there is no big difference.
Given the fact that a significant quantity of coal will continue to dominate India´s energy generation, energy efficiency becomes vital. As per the thumb rule: higher efficiency in the generation of electricity means, lower consumption of coal per unit of electricity generated.
