Thermal power plants generate electricity using a variety of fuels based on their ability to obtain them reliably, economically, and environmentally.

Market insights:

India added a capacity of 4,485 MW through eight thermal power plants in FY 2022. India is expected to commission ten thermal power units of an aggregate 7,010 MW capacity in FY 2023.

Impact of COVID-19:

The COVID-19 pandemic hindered the steady growth of the Indian thermal power sector. The closure of business activities and industrial production resulted in a sharp decline in power consumption in the commercial and industrial sectors, while the stay-at-home order led to an increase in consumption in the residential sector.

Government initiatives:

The government has undertaken certain schemes and programs to promote and expand the indigenous renewable energy resource capacity to create a sustainable environment, as well as reduce energy costs.

Due to the rising demand for electricity and the inability of domestic coal companies to meet demand, the power ministry advised all Gencos, including independent power producers (IPPs), on April 28 to blend 10% imported coal into power generation to supplement domestic coal supply.

Key growth drivers of the market:
