Event-13 December 2018


The Government of India has made some major announcements in the energy domain. While all the villagers are planned to be electrified by 2018, the government aims to make 24*7 “Power for All” a reality by 2019.

According to the Draft National Electricity Plan released by CEA, India needs no new coal based power plants at least up to the year 2027, beyond the 50 GW of coal based capacity already under construction. At the same time, NITI Aayog in its draft National Energy Policy has estimated the coal based power generation capacity to go up to more than 330-441 GW by 2040. However, given India’s aggressive stand at COP21 summit in Paris and to address concerns of climate change, it would not be ideal to expand the coal based capacity without taking adequate measures to improve the efficiency and reduce the emissions from coal power plants.

Countries agreed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit the rise in global average temperatures to well below two degrees Celsius and as close as possible to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels. A strong focus on renewable energy sources and a substantial decline in fossil fuel production and consumption is key to achieving the Paris Agreement goals.

The research says that putting the Paris Agreement into practice will trigger opposite reactions by investors on the one hand and fossil fuel owners on the other hand. For instance, the anticipation of strong CO2 reduction policies might drive up carbon emissions since fossil fuel owners would accelerate their resource extraction to maximize profits before the regulations kick in.

Yet at the same time, the study notes, investors may stop putting their money into coal power plants in order to avoid investing in potentially stranded assets. On balance, consequently, overall CO2 emissions would be effectively reduced.

This calls for a discussion on future of coal in view of the India’s Climate Change agenda and INDC target to reduce the emission intensity of GDP by 2030. A debate that needs to bring all stakeholders under one umbrella for the first time and work towards the way forward for Coal based power generation in the country. Thus the conference on Coal Energy Summit provides a platform for all decision makers, Investors, Industry people, traders, equipment manufacturers, buyers & Suppliers to come out with their perspective on the future outlook and availability of coal based power generation in country
