On the Right Track
Globally, 20 per cent of the total generated energy is used for lighting purposes alone. Experts are of the opinion that the said number has to be revoked considering the challenges arising from climate change issues.
We will handle one-fourth of total planned solar capacity
We as of now have 47,228 MW of the operational capacity through thermal. We have also added another 50 MW of solar capacity, taking our total to 47,278 MW. This year we are going to add about 4,500 MW of capacity out of the 24,000 MW which is under construction.
NTPC starts project work only after all tie-ups are in place
May refer CEA site for the above info. The idle capacity is mainly in gas power stations due to lack of fuel or no takers for high cost power because of expensive imported gas fuel or no PPAs. India does not have much gas resource.
India´s power generators continue to face low and declining capacity utilisation, mainly because financially stressed power-distribution companies are unable to purchase power. This underscores the importance of successfully addressing the power distributors´ financial health.
Own a Powerhouse
The prime minister´s enormous ambition of installing 100 GW (or 100,000 MW) of solar power plants by 2022, in seven years straight, up from just 4 GW today, has set the momentum for solar power generation in India.
NTPC does adhere to clean energy norms
A number of initiatives have been taken to improve coal supply in the country. Putting power, coal and renewable ministries under one minister has been one big step, which has ensured an integrated approach towards fuel management for the power sector.
Tata Power Solar, 3 others bag NTPC´s solar project
Four companies have bagged the EPC contract worth Rs 1,779 crore from public sector NTPC Limited for setting up a 250-MW solar photovoltaic power project in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh.
