Event Details

Coal-based power generation remains dominant in India’s energy mix and its reliance is expected to stay in the next few years. The summer months saw an increased reliance on coal-based power to meet the additional demand. security is critical for the country; hence, policymakers are giving due consideration to pathways that allow for a stable grid, while keeping the climate goals in mind. India has opted for phasing down rather than phasing out coal, given the expected energy demand scenario and the availability of storage capacity in the future. The notified national electricity plan (NEP) includes an additional 25.5 GW of coal capacity for the second half of the decade, in addition to the 25.6 GW already under construction.

The mission of this conference is to discuss and analyse the new and emerging role of the coal-based power generation in India’s energy transition, experiences, plans and outlook of gencos. It will also highlight the experiences and challenges in O&M of TPPs. The conference will provide a platform to showcase the best practices, new and emerging technologies and solutions for TPPs.
