UNCLEAR to NUCLEAR
The Union Cabinet on May 17, 2017 gave its approval for construction of 10 nuclear units of the new indigenously developed 700 MWe (mega watt electric) pressurised heavy water reactors (PHWRs) as part of its clean energy thrust.
We executed first-of-their-kind projects in India
Talking about the unique projects the company handles in precision engineering, Kaustubh Shukla, Chief Operating Officer, Industrial Products Group, Godrej & Boyce, discusses with POWER TODAY how they will introduce advanced processes in RE
The 2015 edition of BP´s Energy Outlook projected India´s energy production rising by 117 per cent to 2035, while consumption grows by 128 per cent. The country´s energy mix is projected to evolve very slowly over the next 22 years with fossil fuels accounting for 87 per cent of demand in 2035, compared with a global average of 81 per cent (down from 92 per cent now).
Nuclear pacts improve Generation Potential
In terms of clarity of vision and rationale, our 3 stage nuclear energy programme is unparalleled. Yet, for various reasons, the Indian nuclear power sector has not achieved its true potential. For decades, we had to develop indigenous technology, prove it, mature it and then scale it from 220 MW to 550-700 MW in the recent years. Later, shortage of Nuclear fuel put limitations to the rate and scale we could have grown.
There is a lack of rationalisation of power tariffs
