INDIA REVIEW India - growing markets, industry & energy demands India is the world's 5th largest energy consumer, accounting for 4.0% of global energy consumption by more than 17% of the world’s population. Energy policy is controlled by India's, Ministry of Power, Ministry of Coal & the Ministry of New Renewable Energy, reports WIP. Energy is a serious business in India, as you might imagine. With a targeted GDP growth rate of 8%, the energy demand is expected to grow at 5.2% annually. Driven by the rising population, expanding economy, and a quest for improved quality of life, the total primary energy consumption is expected to about 412 MTOE (million tonnes oil equivalent) and 554 MTOE. The International Energy Outlook projects that India’s gas consumption to grow at an average annual rate of 5.1%, reaching 2.8 trillion cubic feet by 2025 with the share of electric power sector being 71% by that time. Coal consumption is expected to increase to 315 MT over the forecast period. The use of coal for electricity generation in India is expected to increase by 2.2% per annum during 2002–25, thus requiring an additional 59 000 MW of coalfired capacity. More than 50% of India's commercial energy demand is met through the country's vast coal reserves. Coal will continue to be the predominant form of energy in future. Today, India has one of the highest potentials for the effective use of renewable energy. In July 2009, India unveiled a $19 billion plan to produce 20,000 MW of solar power by 2022. In 2010, India's installed wind generated electric capacity was 13,064 MW. India is the world’s fifth largest producer of wind power after Denmark, Germany, Spain, and the USA. There is a significant potential in India for the generation of power from renewable energy sources: small hydro, biomass, and solar energy. The country has an estimated SHP (smallhydro power) potential of about 15,000 MW. About 65.34% of the electricity consumed in India is generated by thermal power plants, 21.53% by hydroelectric power plants, 2.70% by nuclear power plants and 10.42% by renewable energy sources. Rapid economic growth has created a growing need for dependable and reliable supplies of electricity, gas and petroleum products. Due to the fast-paced growth of India's economy, the country's energy demand has grown an average of 3.6% per annum over the past 30 years. In December 2010, the installed power generation capacity of India stood at 165,000 MW and per capita energy consumption stood at 704 kWh in 2008-09. The country's annual energy production increased from about 190 billion kWh in 1986 to more than 837 billion kWh in 2010. The Indian government has set a modest target to add approximately 78,000 MW of installed generation capacity by 2012. The total demand for electricity in India is expected to be greater than 950,000 MW by 2030. According to a research report published by Citigroup Global Markets, India is expected to achieve 113 GW of installed capacity by 2017. Further, renewable capacity might increase from 15.5 GW to 36.0 GW. WIP Internet link 24 A UGUST 2011 • WORLDWIDE I NDEPENDENT P OWER
