While the power sector in India has witnessed a few success stories in the last 4-5 years, the road that lies ahead of us is dotted with innumerable challenges that result from the gaps that exist between what’s planned versus what the power sector has been able to deliver.
The power sector in India is projected to grow rapidly over the next two decades and to be increasingly open to private sector participation, both domestic and foreign.
BFU has massive expansion plans in the complete value chain in the power sector- Generation, Transmission and Distribution.

India has the 5th largest generation capacity in the world with an installed capacity of 157 GW as on February 28th The Indian government has set ambitious goals in the 11th plan for the power sector which would result in significant expansion in this industry. In order to provide availability of over 1000 units of per capita electricity by year 2012, it has been estimated that need-based capacity addition of more than 100,000 MW would be required.
Hydro power contributes to around 23.4% of the total 157GW installed capacity with an installed base of 36863 MW. The proposed capacity addition during the 11th plan for the Hydro power sector is 15627 MW.
India’s current installed transmission capacity is only 13% of the total installed generation capacity. With focus on increasing generation capacity over the next 8-10 years, the corresponding investments in the transmission sector is also expected to augment. The Ministry of Power plans to establish an integrated National Power Grid in the country by 2012 with close to 200,000 MW generation capacities and 37,700 MW of inter-regional power transfer capacity. Considering that the current inter regional power transfer capacity of 20,750 MW, this is indeed an ambitious objective for the country.
