2.0 Indian Power and Electrical Equipment Industry

2.1 Indian Power Sector Power is a necessary fuel for a growing economy. The Indian economy is on a rising path targeting GDP growth rate of 8-9%. To achieve this growth, it is imperative that the proper power infrastructure is in place. India has the fifth-largest generation capacity in the world with an installed capacity of over 199 GW, as on 31st March, 2012 6 and is also the sixth-largest electricity consumer, accounting for 3.4% of total global consumption. Indias total consumption in 2009 was estimated at 632 TWh. This is expected to increase to 2,465 TWh by 20357. The industrial sector, due to increasing capacity additions, has the highest demand for electricity across all sectors and is expected to remain high. The domestic and commercial sectors are likely to experience a steady demand for electricity, but the share of agriculture is expected to see a decline in the coming years8. 2.1.1 Generation Thermal energy accounts for the major share of generation in India. Share of wind and other renewable forms of energy currently stands at around 12% of the total installed capacity. Government plans to increase the share of power generated from renewable sources in the coming Plans. India currently stands as the 5th largest and 3rd largest producer in the world of hydro and wind energy respectively. With envisioned capacity additions, India is expected to reach an installed capacity of 400 GW by 2022. This increase will be in line with the countrys GDP growth plans of 89% per year.
