Magazine Description

In this issue

The power generation capacity has increased remarkably over the past decade amid increasing demand. But there are many areas that need improvement. As far as the primary fuel supply situation is concerned, only a decade ago own natural gas almost exclusively accounted for fuel supply. Some 86% of fuel to power generation was from own natural gas. But the demand increased in geometric progression as no large gas field could be discovered over the last ten years. The Power Sector Master Plan 2041 has prescribed a fuel mix of 35% coal (34% imported), 35% own gas and imported LNG and 30% Imported power, nuclear and renewable energy. Energy experts believe that this fuel mix would make the country almost exclusively depended on imported primary fuel. They observed that if own coal resource is not economically exploited soon, the country would become about 90% dependent on import of coal, LNG, liquid fuel and electricity. Under this situation, though reliable power supply may be achieved by 2030, huge uncertainties would be created for sustainability and affordability of supply. We cannot term power supply sustainable if it goes outside the affordable limits of end users.
