(Achievement of 95% against 12th Plan Target)
(excl. New Renewable Energy)
Total installed Capacity at the end of March 2016 : 2,98,060 MW
The clean energy sector achieved capacity addition of 6,938 MW in FY 16 led by Solar (4.4 GW)
Clean energy addition till Mar 2016 during 12th plan : 17,813 MW
Transmission Addition in ‘CKM’ during 12th Plan Up to March 2016
Sub-station Addition in MVA/ MW during 12th Plan Up to March 2016
400 KV Transmission & Sub-Station completion is over achieved in 4 years of 12th Plan only.

IEEMA Division Wise Growth Index
Period: April 2015 - March 2016 over April 2014 - March 2015
|S. No.||Name of Division||% Growth||Observations|
Overall growth in Power & Control Cables
|2||Capacitor||3.3||Growth in HT Capacitors Decline in LT Capacitor due to lack of domestic orders|
|3||Instrument Transformer||5.6||Growth in CTs – Indoor & Outdoor, mostly from Domestic orders for Medium Voltage & growth in PTs – CVTs & EMVTs supported by export|
Increase in Disc, Long Rod up to 220 kV. Growth in applications based insulators except for Insulators for Transformers
Growth in Single phase Meter – Domestic & Exports
Growth for frame sizes above 225 for LT Squirrel Cage Motors, Recovery in HT Motors & Flame proof motors; FHP single phase Motors growth consistent
Decrease in Surge Arresters, domestic sales decreased by 9% and export
Growth in MCB, ELCB, ACB; S/F & F/S decline in Contactor and Motor Starters
Growth in breakers for 110 & 220 kV only, decrease for other
|10||Tr. Line Towers||-8.7|
Decline continues in domestic orders & growth in export orders
|11||Conductors||17.1||Growth continue in domestic off-take|
Growth for Distribution and Power Transformers; decline in REC range transformers.
12% Decline in OBP is a concern!
