Hydro-rich states Karnataka, AP, Kerala reap benefits
India´s hydro power generation capacity is mostly concentrated in the Himalayan regions, and these generating stations are fed from the glaciers. Due to this reason, the hydro power sector did not see a significant uptick at a country level as would be expected by many. At a state-level, however, many hydro-power rich states like Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala etc., have benefitted.
The Energy Mix
Rather a debatable topic, considering India´s move towards green energy and climate change promise, the country´s energy mix will always be led by coal-based thermal power projects, of course, with the help of other supporting energy resources.
