SCENARIO IN INDIA NUCLEAR POWER Nuclear power is the fourth-largest source of electricity in India after thermal, hydroelectric and  renewable sources of electricity India had 4.8 GW of installed electricity generation capacity using nuclear fuels India's nuclear power plant development began in 1964 by commissioning of two boiling water reactors at Tarapur  India's Nuclear plants generated 30,292.91 GWh or 3.75% of total electricity produced in India. As of 2013, India has 21 nuclear reactors in operation in 7 nuclear power plants, having an installed capacity of 5780 MW and producing a total of 30,292.91 GWh of electricity while 6 more reactors are under construction and are expected to generate an additional 4,300 MW. Fission Reaction Controlled  Capacity India's share of nuclear power plant generation capacity is just 1.2% of worldwide nuclear power production capacity, making it the 15th largest nuclear power producer. Nuclear power provided 3.5% of the country's total electricity generation in 2011. India aims to supply 25% of it electricity needs with nuclear power by 2050. India's largest nuclear power plant project under implementation is at Jaitapur, Maharashtra in partnership with Areva, France. Power Plants 2013 Chennai power plant Name - Madras Atomic Power Station (MAPS) Location- Chennai Units- 220 * 2 Capacity- 440 MW Solar energy  India is bestowed with solar irradiation ranging from 4 to 7 kWh/square meter/day across the country, with western and southern regions having higher solar incidence.  India is endowed with rich solar energy resource. India receives the highest global solar radiation on a horizontal surface.  Government of India launched its Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission on 11 jan 2010 with aim of producing 20,000 MW electricity by year 2022 CAPACITY (MW) 161 461 1205 3743 2319 2632 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 WIND ENERGY o India has the fifth largest installed wind power capacity in the world. The larger part of the onshore potential gained from wind is located in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu which makes up for 54% of the onshore wind potential of the country along with Maharashtra , Gujarat and Rajasthan  The state of Gujarat is estimated to have the maximum gross wind power potential in India, with a potential of 10.6 GW. In 2013, Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has achieved a target of 15,000 MW of new installations and had an aim to achieve 25,000 MW by the end of 2014 . BETZ’s EFFICIENCY NO WIND TURBINE CAN CROSS THIS EFFICIENY , CALLED Betz’s efficiency. Value of Betz’- 59.3% GEO-THERMAL ENERGY India has about 340 hot springs spread over the country. Of this, 62 are distributed along the northwest Himalaya, in the States of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. Andaman and Nicobar arc is the only place in India where volcanic activity geo-thermal energy is present. Tattapani in Chhattisgarh Puga in Jammu & Kashmir India plans to set up its first geothermal power plant, with 2–5 MW capacity at Puga in ladakh. Cambay Graben in Gujarat Manikaran in Himachal Pradesh Surajkund in Jharkhand Chhumathang in Jammu & Kashmir TIDAL WAVE ENERGY India is surrounded by sea on three sides, its potential to harness tidal energy is significant.  The Gulf of Khambhat and the Gulf of Kutch on India's west coast where the maximum tidal range is 11 m and 8 m with average tidal range of 6.77 m and 5.23 m respectively AND 4m is sufficient.  Barrage technology could harvest about 8 GW from tidal energy in India, mostly in Gujarat. Gulf of Kutch has a capacity of 50 MW BIO-MASS POWER In this system biomass, bagasse, forestry and agro residue & agricultural wastes are used as fuel to produce electricity. The current availability of biomass in India is estimated to be approximately 640 million metric tones per annum.This converted to cubic meters of biogas comes to 12800 million cubic meters per annum (@ 20 cubic meters of biogas per metric ton of biomass) In 2011, India started a new initiative with the aim to demonstrate medium size mixed feed biogas-fertilizer pilot plants. This technology aims for generation, purification/enrichment, bottling and piped distribution of biogas. India has additionally commissioned 158 projects under its Biogas based Distributed/Grid Power Generation programme, with a total installed capacity of about 2 MW.
