Energy management yet to attain maturity in India
Power utilities in developing economies like India are often confronted with a two-pronged challenge in the energy-revenue chain: a gap between peak demand and installed capacity and high levels of technical and commercial losses.
India Is a Key Market for EDF
The first pillar our partnership with India is based on is nuclear. India's strong mission to increase the use of nuclear from 3 per cent of the energy mix to 9 per cent by 2030 is very ambitious.
Not in the race yet
India has embarked on an ambitious programme to add 9,000 MW of nuclear power capacity in the next few years, mostly riding on the new indigenously developed 700 MWe (mega watt electric) pressurised heavy water reactors (PHWRs) as part of its clean energy thrust.
Shifting focus towards local manufacturing is a win
The industry, which today is worth more than Rs.36,000 crore, is expected will grow to Rs.64,000 crore by 2020. This is primarily because of huge government and private investment planned in segments such as smart cities, modernisation of railways, highways, Digital India campaign, and Power for All by 2022.
Construction of Kudankulam NPP 2nd stage has commenced
Commencement of construction work at the NPP second stage site commenced with the ceremony of pouring concrete into the foundation slab of the reactor compartment, which was held on June 29, 2017. Joint work in the field of peaceful use of atomic energy is one of the key areas of the Russian-Indian cooperation.
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.
