How Much Fuel We Need For A Year?

Electricity has become the most important necessity to accomplish our day to day tasks. Without electricity offices and households can’t go a minute. Average energy consumption of a UK Household in 2013 was 4,170 kWh. It is not only about the comfort but work too. It would not be wrong if we will say that electricity has been a major invention playing a leading role in making the life easy and comfortable. Electricity describes the present life, be it at40

Top five states in India with highest installed electricity generation capacity

Top five states in India with highest installed electricity generation capacity

India is the world’s fifth largest electricity generator with total installed capacity of 2,28,722 MW. Out of this, 90,062 MW is from state owned utilities, 72,927 MW is from privately owned utilities and 65,733 MW is from central owned utilities. The pace of investment from private players is considerable which shows an encouraging environment for the electricity sector. India’s energy demand has been growing rapidly in the last two decades. This demand has been boosted by industrial growth as well40

Introduction of Open Access Mechanism

It is practically infeasible for the electricity generator and consumer to have their own transmission and distribution lines. They have to rely on state and centre own transmission and distribution network for the same. In India, there are four main segments in the power sector viz. generation, transmission, distribution and regulation. Out of these four, only generation has a share of the private sector. However, the transmission sector is widely operated by the Power Grid Corporation of India Limited- a40

Renewables and the Larger Electricity Supply Eco System

Renewables are a part of the electricity delivery supply chain along with many other elements – non-renewable generating sources, transmission utilities, distribution utilities, consumers etc. What happens in the larger electricity eco-system has a direct bearing on Renewable Energy (RE) and its future in the country. Project success requires not only efficient generation but also the downstream transmission and distribution sectors to work well. Investors should evaluate upcoming opportunities on technical, commercial and regulatory aspects. Generation Notwithstanding the number of40

How to calculate GHG emission for electricity consumption from the grid?

A large portion of Greenhouse Gas emissions (GHG) from most companies comprise of consumption of electricity from the grid. In India, around 65% of electricity is coming from coal and other fossil fuel based thermal power plants. Electricity generated from these power plants contributes in GHG emissions. Therefore, electricity being consumed from the grid also contributes in the GHG emissions.  GHG emission from the grid electricity consumption is categorized as energy indirect GHG emissions or scope 2 GHG emissions.

Power Grid System in India – Part 2

Continued from part 1 Institutional structure of power transmission sector in India Electricity is a regulated sector in India with Central Electricity Regulatory Commission at the central level and State Electricity Regulatory Commission in each of the states. Each of the five regions under NEWNE and Southern grids has a Regional Load Despatch Centre (RLDC), which is the apex body, as per the Electricity Act 2003). RLDC ensures the integrated operation of the power system in the concerned region. The40
