A new report proposes a scenario that prioritizes efficiency over variable costs in India’s coal power dispatch mechanism. It goes on to estimate the efficiency improvements and cost savings achieved in this scenario.
Ratings agency ICRA maintains a negative outlook for thermal power generation despite a rise in electricity demand. The thermal plant load factor will remain subdued at 57%. The gap between the average cost of supply and the average tariff for discoms is estimated at 70-75 paise per unit for FY2022.
