India - The Energy Picture

 
RE Potential vs Installed (MW)
 
Power Requirement in India Increasing Rapidly
Projected Peak Demand-Supply Gap (GW)
Approximately 145GW of power generating capacity installed

only 55% of Indian households have electricity

Electricity demand expected to grow @10%-12% p.a. for the next 15 years

Huge gap between supply and demand - 16GW in 2009 (see chart). RE expected to help bridge gap

Demand supply gap creates price differentials

Renewable energy installations constitute only 8% of total power capacity(~145 GW). ~160GW of RE potentials has been identified. 92% of available resources untapped as of now.
