household and industrials sector. Ravi Shankar Chairman The Energy Development and Conservation Council E203 GK-II New Delhi-2820102 Dear Mr. Recommendations have been made in order to overcome the problems . Yours Sincerely. The following report is prepared to identify the challenges and problems faced by energy council to meet the demands of electricity in agriculture. Thank you for your consideration.Letter of Transmitter October 14th 2012 Sakshi Agarwal Research Manager The Energy Development and Conservation Council E203 GK-II New Delhi-2820102 Mr. Shankar. Sakshi Agarwal .

Conservation Council is known for its success in developing long term community development.89 50. DATA COLLECTION DEMAND ( in GW) SECTORS 2008-09 2009-10 68. community based organisation established in 1945. Evaluate the energy demand and supply of the agriculture. education. and on-ground environmental restoration programs. non party-political. To recommend suitable solutions to overcome the causes. the world's fifth largest.90 .87 144. commercial and household sector.10 25. biomass. The Energy Development and Conservation Council is an independent non-profit. Thermal power plants constitute 66% of the installed capacity.85 Gigawatt (GW) as of September 2012. small hydro.57 118.46 AGRICULTURE 60. OBJECTIVES: 1. 3.5 GW.24 33.10 100. PURPOSE To identify the causes of mismatch between demand and supply of the electricity.4 16. and nuclear. To identify the causes of mismatch between demand and supply of electricity.INTRODUCTION The electricity sector in India had an installed capacity of 207.7 17. waste-to-electricity. hydroelectric about 19% and rest being a combination of wind. Captive power plants generate an additional 31.21 2010-11 75.70 COMMERCIAL INDUSTRIAL TOTAL 15. 2.

4. Power grid failure in India due to excessive load.46 SUPPLY 97.21 137. The energy sector is on the front line.2 13 6.7 REASONS FOR MISMATCH BETWEEN DEMAND AND SUPPLY OF ELECTRICITY A study was conducted in the the three sectors to identify the reasons for inadequate supply of electricity. The fourth challenge is massive urbanization that is Urban growth rates have reached unprecedented levels.To have a 50% chance of limiting the global temperature increase to 2°C in relation to turn-of-the-century levels.90 118. They are: 1.SUPPLY ( in GW) SECTORS 2008-09 2009-10 60 15 30.89 51.10 25. the theft of power. 2.7 105. whereas under a businessas-usual scenario. 5. A shortage of coal. The investment is not enough to keep up with the growing demand for global energy while keeping final energy costs under control.6 COMMERCIAL INDUSTRIAL TOTAL 14. global emissions will have to be reduced 50% between now and 2050. .00 97.6 2010-11 70.21 GAP BETWEEN DEMAND AND SUPPLY YEAR 2008-09 2009-10 2010-11 DEMAND 100.87 137. 3.86 GAP 3.10 15.21 144. a lack of transparency in fixing electricity charges and underperforming private distribution agencies mean that vast swathes of India live without electricity for several hours a day. as two-thirds of global GHG emissions are carbon emissions linked to that sector. emissions would almost double by that year.86 AGRICULTURE 58.21 105. The country is facing a huge supply shortfall. The third challenge relates specifically to the regulation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

To reduce energy-related GHG emissions through gradually shifting toward the deployment of low-GHG emission technologies. 3. 6. The energy system development should be tackled in a way that enables them progressively to decouple growth from energy consumption through improved energy efficiency . improper vigilance .” 2. negligence and irresponsible attitude of citizens of India can be resolved if the recommendations are implemented . 4. The wiring should be done underground and the wires should be properly insulated. CONCLUSION The problems that the energy sector is facing due to lack of proper infrastructure.RECOMMENDATIONS 1. 5. A national campaign should be launched in support of “Energy for Sustainable Development. . improper implementation of rules and regulations . India should prioritize the goals through the adoption of appropriate national strategies. Strict penalties should be imposed on those in case of non payment of bills and theft of electricity.
