Since falling PLFs of thermal power plants in the current scenario raise a serious concern over maintaining the power demand-supply equilibrium of the country, especially addressing peak power requirements. There exists a strong business case for the renewable energy sources (RES) in India. For clearing all the myths and presenting a clear picture of what would be the likely fate of all renewable energy sources (solar, wind, biomass and small hydro) in India, enincon consulting llp attempts to come up with a research study on the future outlook of non-conventional sector in India and associated opportunity tune for the related value chain players.
Over past few years there has been a consistent spurt observed in the M&A drive by larger players neutralizing the effect of unstructured participants in the business. This marks the evolution of the industry into more matured structure wishing away from lower price dynamics of the unstructured portfolio. With the rise in demand expected at both local and export levels tracking the supply dynamics in this phase of evolution of the industry holds pinnacle importance. Also, the suppliers shall increase in number given the performance of capacity utilization of existing cement plants in the country.
As, the dynamics of Indian power generation sector is shifting at large towards green power hydro inadvertently qualifies for a preferred source of generation courtesy withdrawal of fringe benefits offered to other major peaking power solution i.e. gas based generation. In this milieu, there are many queries which evolve to seek a resolute like what is the business case for hydro power and what Opportunites does it offer for EPC contractor, OEMs and last but not the least the power distribution utilities. Similarly, what quantum India should generate from small hydro and what mix of opportunities does these power plants offer amidst the potential for sustainable capex, queries like this and many more finds an answer from this dossier
With power distribution reforms gained momentum soon after the application of EA 2003 (where it was believed to be coined in mid 90’s) , Indian power distribution utilities came along way since then. With, introduction of reforms and multiple cognitive steps undoubtedly the power distribution sector stands improved by leaps from the erstwhile levels. Having said that, it indeed still represents the weakest link of the power generation, transmission and distribution chain. With, India having most of the discoms run as state authorities the pedigree for operational efficiencies and achievement of targeted revenue remains a seldom site. Barring Gujarat and few discoms of southern states the degree of AT&C loss levels decline over the past decade remains elusive. For sure, states like Rajasthan , Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra have depicted remarkable improvement but still owing to the large area of operations and the consumer handled thereof consistently tests the revenue cycle for the utilities.
Analysing Futuristic Business Potential for Domestic & Global Players
India has limited natural gas reserves. Development of unconventional natural gas resources is also on cards in India with ample weightage on CBM and Shale gas development but the lack of data and technology is hitting the same. Hence, domestic production of natural gas in India is highly unlikely to keep up with the demand and the country has to rely on imports to meet its demand. Moreover, the domestic production in India has been concentrated over western and southern region of the country and in absence of adequate natural gas pipeline infrastructure the northern and eastern region of the country are gas starved.
Analysing Domestic and International Coal Outlook
India is in the early stages of major transformation, and country’s GDP is expected to grow by 7.9% in 2016 (as per World Bank), more than twice the global average. Economic growth and modernization will turn drive energy demand, especially coal. In this dossier, enincon carried out most exhaustive and qualitative research accompanied by in depth analysis to find out future market scenario for steel, sponge iron, power and other coal consuming sectors in order to find out coking and non coking coal demand in the country by 2022. Further, by meticulously examining the dynamics involved in coal imports, best coal rich destinations have been benchmarked taking into consideration prevailing and upcoming infrastructure, regulatory and policy environment, investment scenario etc. This dossier shall help in strategic decision making for all the key value chain players and stakeholders
Tracking Solar Tariff Trends and Future Movements
With an upbeat scenario across the globe for renewables, in particular for solar, in India too solar is gaining its lost sheen. As a matter of fact, the country seems optimistic to make the entire renewable portfolio solar driven. The massive targeted capacity of 100GW, which the government of India has aimed to be achieved by 2022, bears a testimony to the fact. With an estimated share of 57%, it could be safe to assume that solar energy in India is poised to play a role reversal in the renewable mix and that too, soon.
The growth of Indian upstream sector was plagued mainly by poorly explored sedimentary basin, declining private and foreign participation, lack of proper technology and non- transparent policies.
ENINCON in this report analyses the entire supply side of coal by taking into account of both the volumes and prices till 2020. This report also identifies innovative coal sourcing options to various consumer segments, assess the inland and offshore coal infrastructure as well as logistics to cover up the extent of coal shortage.
Through this report Enincon llp attempts to unleash and address the associated challenges with both conventional and unconventional streams of the Indian power sector and presents a path finding guide for all existing and likely to venture stakeholders in the segment.
