The Fe Round Table Conference - Power & Energy - February, 2008

Charging Up India

The Power & Energy sector is clearly the one that can propel India onto the next growth trajectory. The coming year, is said to be one of the power sector, where the presence of quality power generation, transport and distribution companies will experience favourable ratings from the investing community, just like the real estate sector did in the previous year.

However, at a macro level, not many projects have taken off. Incessant power cuts are there for all to see. The 12% gap between power generation and demand experienced right now, threatens to widen if new capacities are not added. The eleventh five-year plan till 2012 envisages an addition of around 78,577 mw of power generation capacity and around 14% is estimated to come from the private sector. There are similar estimates for the twelfth five-year plan as well. There are several issues here and linkages for fuel from energy companies are one of them. Then there are others like government clearances, land acquisition and so on.

The FE Round Table Conference will have industry experts, policy-makers and regulators will discuss what the possible way ahead could be? The discussion will endeavour to come out with likely solutions that could accelerate growth in this crucial industry.
