India: Electricity covers the sector overview, generation performance in terms of electricity generation, plant load factor, power demand-supply position, consumption, and installed capacity, transmission and distribution, policy framework, regulatory environment, and rural electrification. It also covers the recent policy initiatives, electricity tariff, hydropower development, industry SWOT, and market outlook, plus the profile, comparative matrix, and SWOT analysis of the industry leading players: National Thermal Power Corporation Limited (NTPC), Tata Power Company Limited (TATAPOWER), Reliance Infrastructure Limited (RELINFRA), Neyveli Lignite Corporation (NLC), and Calcutta Electric Supply Corporation Limited (CESC).

Executive Summary
India’s fast-paced economic growth and its rapid rate of industrialization and urbanization have fueled energy demand. According to the Central Electricity Authority (CEA), an additional capacity of approximately 78,700 MW is needed to satisfy the projected demand by 2011-12. Based on the progress made so far during the 11th Plan (2007-2012), a total capacity of 62,374 MW is most likely to be added. industry analysis reports

The country’s appetite for energy is growing extremely fast, with demand outstripping supply, which has resulted in power shortages. India consumes roughly 3% of the world’s total energy. Despite increases in energy use, consumption per capita in India is one of the lowest in the world as compared to other countries, but this figure is steadily increasing. India has the fifth largest generation capacity in the world with a total installed capacity of 173,626.4 MW as of end-March 2011. Thermal generation constitutes more than 80% of the total energy generation.

In order to fuel a rapidly growing economy, the Indian energy sector requires investments to the tune of USD 120–150 billion every five years. The imperative for private sector investment is strong in order to complement the public sector in meeting this investment requirement and to bring in the required capabilities and technologies to enhance energy resource extraction. Moreover, government policies and foreign investment in the sector will aim at bridging the gap between supply and demand of electricity in India.
