Today, it has an installed generation capacity of 2.27 GW. In 2012-13, it registered a growth rate of 3.96 per cent. However, due to rapid industrialisation and changes in lifestyle, the demand-supply gap is ever increasing. Delays in target capacity addition, shortage of fuel, AT&C losses and non-conducive government policies are crippling hindrances for India’s power shortage. To bridge this gap, the government plans to add capacity of 88,537 MW from conventional sources during the 12th Five-Year Plan. Driving on the abundant renewable resources, the ‘green’ power sector also offers significant opportunities. As per MNRE, grid interactive renewable capacity addition is about 30,000 MW, likely during the 12th Plan.
