‘India to add 1,00,000 MW clean coal tech-based power capacity
India is expected to add more than 1,00,000 MW clean coal technology-based power generation capacity during the 2016-2025 period, says a report.
GlobalData, a research and consulting firm, said that while the country’s clean coal installations are at an nascent stage, many recent ultra mega power projects have adopted “super critical technology”.
“India’s clean coal capacity is expected to increase by approximately 103 GW (1,03,000 MW) between 2016 and 2025, as the country seeks to meet its electricity demand,” it said said in a statement today.
Besides, use of this technology in future projects would drive capacity additions over the forecast period.
Super critical technology is more energy efficient. “The country is not fully electrified and is subject to a large number of power cuts and power reliability uncertainties.
