India’s installed capacity, excluding captive power, allows for a modest per capita consumption. The generation is insufficient to meet the demand, resulting in an overall shortfall of both peak capacity and energy. There is a strong push towards increasing supply, with an aim of tripling capacity in the coming decades. Such ambitious growth has both financial implications as well as resource availability challenges. In this report, CSTEP has added comments/observations throughout, with the aim to add value and insight to the data that capture statistics on the position of India’s power supply.
