Growth of Power generation in India since its Independence has been noteworthy making India the third largest producer of electricity in Asia. Generating capacity has grown manifold from 1362 MW in 1947 to 132,329 MW (as on March 31, 2007). The over all generation in India has increased from 301 Billion Units (BUs) during 1992- 93 to 659 BUs in 2006- 07. However, the growth has not been able to meet the demand and substantial energy & peak shortages of 9.5% and 14.2% respectively exist.

India presently has installed capacity of 86015 MW of thermal generation (as on March 31, 2007) constituting 65% of total installed capacity. Coal contributes 71121 MW (54% of total installed capacity), gas 13692 MW (10%) and diesel makes up the remaining 1202 MW (0.9%). Nuclear constitutes another 3900 MW (2.94%).

To meet the projected demand in 2011-12, additional capacity requirement of about 78000 MW is required to be added in the 11th Plan (2007-12). Thermal power generation is expected to continue to dominate in the power generation scenario. Nuclear power generation in India is also going to get a big push with the Indian Government putting in place an ambitious expansion program.

To meet the targets of the capacity addition, massive resources would be required. According to the estimates of Government of India, investments of more than 100 billion dollars would be required in power generation in the next ten years. As such, significant project opportunities are expected in the power generation sector.
