Industry, Market and Competitive Environment
The Indian Power Sector Scenario As per the Ministry of Power (“MoP”), Government of India (“GOI”), the all India installed capacity of electric power generating stations was 112,058.42 MW as on March 31, 2004. This total capacity consisted of 29,500.23 MW hydro power based capacity, 77,968.53 MW thermal power based capacity, 2,720 MW nuclear power based capacity and 1,869.66 MW wind power based capacity.
A capacity addition target of 5,202.34 MW consisting of 3,765.00 MW of hydro power and 1,437.34 MW of thermal power was envisaged for the year 2003-04. As against the aforesaid capacity addition target, a capacity addition of 3,951.62 MW consisting of 2,590.00 MW of hydro power and 1,361.62 MW of thermal power was achieved. (Source: MoP website).
The 16th Electric Power Survey (“EPS”) carried out by the Central Electricity Authority has projected a peak demand of 115,705 MW and an energy requirement of 719,097 MU by the end of 10th Five Year Plan (2002-07), while the peak demand and energy requirement by the end of the 11th Five Year Plan (2007-12) has been projected at 157,107 MW and 975,222 MU respectively. The GOI has targeted capacity additions of about 41,000 MW during 10th Five Year Plan. Further, in order to provide power on demand to all consumers by 2012, the GOI plans to add around 100,000 MW of additional capacities during the 10th and 11th Five Year Plan periods.

Power Infrastructure in India
• Installed Generation Capacities (FY2000 - FY2004) by Generation
• Power Supply Position The country has in the recent past, been experiencing chronic peak shortages of power availability. While the peak shortages have come down from 20.5% in 1992-93 to 12.2% in 2002 -03, overall power shortages have firmed up to 8.8% in 2002-03 from 7.3% in 1992-93. The chart below summarises the power shortage scenario in the country.

Hydropower – benefits and development Hydropower is a renewable, economical, non-polluting and environmentally benign source of energy. Hydropower stations have the inherent ability for instantaneous starting, stopping, load variations, etc. and help in improving the reliability of power systems. There is no fuel cost during the life of the project as hydropower generation is a nonconsumptive use of water. The benefits of hydropower as a clean, environment friendly and economically attractive source of energy have been sufficiently recognized. The need for its accelerated development also arises from its capacity of enhanced system reliability and economics of utilization of resources.
Despite the benefits of hydroelectric projects, the share of hydropower has steadily declined in India. At the time of independence, the share of hydropower in the total installed capacity was around 37%, which continued to rise, crossing 50% in the year 1963. The share of hydropower, however, started declining thereafter. Until the late seventies, the share of hydropower remained above 40%, considered to be the ideal hydrothermal mix for meeting the demand in an efficient manner. However, ever since the eighties, the share of hydropower has started declining sharply and at present, the share of hydropower constitutes only about 25% of the overall installed capacity of the country. The graph below shows the trend over the years.
Composition of Power Generating Capacity in India 54% 59% 60% 67% 71% 74% 75% 46% 41% 40% 33% 29% 26% 25%
