Decommissioning Thermal Power Plants in India Evaluating New Industry Segment & Estimating USD 5 Billion Opportunity

the coal requirement in order to continue generation for such plants increases by huge quantum which means the cost of operations being on rise consistently and the return is limited. This means dismantling such power plants and utilizing the same land area for creating fresh capacities by utilizing super critical/ultra-super critical technology would make more sense in order to support less polluting thermal generation with better efficiencies. Facilitating decommissioning services requires in depth acumen which is quintessential to firstly dismantle the thermal power plants and secondly utilizing the defunct units scrap to obtain the salvage value. This in itself will open up a new industry segment in the country which demands better understanding of the opportunities involved and a yard stick to measure them on both , integrated basis as well as on bifurcated terms across for each state.

DOP: July, 2017 Sector: Geography:

Dismantling business in India augurs well for the service providers in the current pretext wherein about half of the country’s thermal power plants are aging and exceed 25 years of useful plant life. This means collectively almost 30% of the country’s installed capacity is up for dismantling and a good proportion of these power plants are fast approaching 40 years beyond which operating such power plants would not make any business case for the operators. Infact, 188 thermal power plants of the total 396 thermal power plants in the country are more than 25 years old. The business case for such power plants to be dismantled arises due to the fact that the efficiency of such power plants decrease in the levels of close to 40% of their prime operations.

    Some trivial and yet complex questions associate with open access mechanism which needs to addressed through a pan India study which should prove to be a path finding guide for the project developers as well buyers to felicitate the same. The pinnacle interest for the developers is to learn about as to why only renewable players are reaping benefits of direct power purchase agreements and why not the thermal power producers under independent and captive category enjoy the same? Queries like these and many more demanded an in-depth research to unearth the very reason as to why essentially open access is fast gaining popularity in India, which transformed into the research base for the report for enincon consulting llp.

  • 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.
