About Electricity Generation Sector

Sparking Transformation: Investing in India's Dynamic Electricity Generation Sector.
Unveil boundless investment opportunities in India's Electricity Generation sector, propelling the nation to its position as the world's third-largest electricity producer.
With a formidable total installed capacity of 410339.23 MW, India's energy landscape thrives. Thermal power contributes 64.01%, solar power 17.18%, hydropower 12.72%, and other sources make up the rest. A significant leap awaits - the share of non-fossil fuel-based electricity generation is projected to escalate to 64% by 2029-30, surging from 42% in 2022.
India's stride towards energy independence is underpinned by the National Green Hydrogen Mission, envisioning a global hub for Green Hydrogen production and export. Targeting 5 Million Metric tonnes (MMT) of Green Hydrogen per annum by 2030, India charts a path to self-reliance, aligning with the 2047 energy independence goal.
Uncover investment opportunities in Electricity Generation projects in India and be part of driving a sustainable future.
