Sometimes looking at the power sector in India reminds me of the Clark Gable classic ‘Gone with the wind’. Let me explain, our installed capacity as I explained in my previous post is around 300 GW. Assuming a conservative estimate production of 64%, we would have a per capita availability of around 1345 units.

Now India is on the road to becoming a power sufficient country. We have close to 280 Giga Watts (10 9) of installed capacity and crossed 302 Giga Watts this year. Now 70% of the power plants run on fossils fuel, mostly coal. Luckily we have an abundance of coal, and this can last for a few decades if we are smart about the way we use coal.
