Power Generation

Renewable Energy & Distributed Generation

Renewable Energy

The future lies with renewable energy. Renewable energy technologies provide clean and green sources of electricity. With their abundance supply, they form the backbone for India’s energy security and ‘energy independence’ as envisaged by 2020.  We aim to transform NTPC into the country's largest green power producer in the coming years. Green power is national power.


Objectives

NTPC envisages a broad base generation mix by evaluating conventional and alternate sources of energy to ensure long run competitiveness and mitigate fuel risks.


Vision

“To provide green power through locally available resources at affordable price, promoting clean energy”.

Portfolio of Renewable Power

NTPC has drafted its business plan of capacity addition of about 1,000 MW through renewable resources by 2017. In this endeavour, NTPC has already commissioned 110 MW Solar PV Projects and another 15 MW Solar PV and 8 MW Small Hydro Projects are under implementation.

    Feasibility studies in association with the Geological Survey of India are in progress.

Distributed Generation

India’s growth story is not possible unless the entire country marches in tandem. This means that the growth trajectory of rural India where two-thirds of our population lives ramps up considerably. Economic development with the supply of reliable energy is a must for this goal to be realised.  Subsequently efficient energy management is crucial for rural development. Some of the villages are located in remote & inaccessible areas where it would be either impossible or extremely expensive to extend the existing power transmission network. To this end, distributed generation is the solution to the challenge in providing power to the off-the-beaten track village clusters. Currently 16 decentralised distributed generation power projects with a combined capacity of 340 KW have been commissioned for benefitting 2280 households with a population of 12500 in four states.
