With continuing strong population and economic growth, India's need for
electricity has never been greater. India's primary energy demand will more than
double by 2030, growing an average 3.6 percent every year and by 2050, the
International Energy Agency estimates India will need to add between 600 GW to
1200 GW of additional new power generation capacity.
The technologies and fuel sources India chooses to adopt to add to its electricity
generation capacity will be critical to the level of impact on global resource usage
and environmental issues.
Key implementation challenges for India's electricity sector include new project
management and execution, plant upgrade and modernization, aaccelerating
energy efficient exploitation of the nation's abundant renewable energy resources,
overcoming financial constraints and high system losses and implementing more
equipment supply and transmission and distribution (T&D) capacity.
In line with the demand for energy consumption and the exceptional growth
required in the power sector to meet the nation's desired targets, POWER-GEN
India & Central Asia along with the co-located events Renewable Energy World
India and HydroVision India, seek to address important technical and logistical
issues facing the Indian government's ambitious plans to modernize its power
