Power Sector in India: July 2010 updates

India’s power generation companies added 74% more capacity in July, but still fell short of the Government’s monthly target, according to the Central Electricity Authority (CEA).

Companies added 1,303 megawatts (MW) in new capacity last month, short of the planned 2,094 MW, the power sector regulator said in a report on its website.

Utilities had added 1,015 MW of capacity in June.

Thermal power capacity additions of 1,223 MW in July fell short of the 1,998 MW target, according to the CEA report.

Twenty four coal-fired power generators had coal stockpiles to last less than seven days as of July 31 compared with a typical 25 days to 30 days, according to the CEA report.

Indian power producers imported 1.53 million tonnes of coal in July compared with a target of 2.92 million tonnes.
