Power Situation in India



While electricity in Megawatts represents capacity, electricity generation represents supply of power over a period of time and is measured in terms of units. The installed capacity of power plants in the country as on 29.02.2012 is 1,90,593 MW (including 22,253 MW from Renewable Energy Sources). The gross electricity generation in the country during 2011-12 (upto February, 2012) including import from Bhutan was 798.9 Billion Units.

 

The state – wise and category – wise electricity generation in the country during 2011-12 (upto February, 2012) is given at Annex-I.

 

The energy requirement, availability and shortage in the country during April, 2011 to February, 2012 are given below:

Year Energy
Requirement Availability Deficit
(MU) (MU) (MU) (%)
2011-12* # 8,53,324 7,82,124 71,200 8.3
* Upto February, 2012                                                  MU = Million Unit
# Includes provisional figures for the month of February, 2012.

 

The details of State-wise requirement of electricity and shortfall during the current year 2011-12 (upto February, 2012) are enclosed at Annex-II.

 

No specific request has been received from the Government of Madhya Pradesh recently for eliminating gap between requirement of electricity and its generation and to provide electricity to the State by generating it at a rapid pace. Electricity being a concurrent subject, supply and distribution of power comes under the preview of the concerned State Government. There has been a significant acceleration in the pace of generating capacity addition during the 11th Plan. A capacity addition of 51,302 MW has taken place up to 9th March, 2012 as compared to 21,180 MW added during the 10th Plan (2002-07).  As per the report of Working Group on Power for 12th Plan, capacity addition requirement during 12th Plan is about 76,000 MW on all India basis.

 

The above information was given by Minister of State for Power Shri K.C.Venugopal in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.
