Power Sector Updates


Addition to Power Generation during Apr-Feb FY16: 14,182 MW (excl. New Renewable Energy)

Total Addition till Feb 2016 during 12th plan : 75,196 MW (Achievement of 85% against 12th Plan Target)

Total installed Capacity at the end of February 2016 : 2,88,665 MW


Transmission Addition in ‘CKM’ during 12th Plan Up to February 2016


Sub-station Addition in MVA/ MW during 12th Plan Up to February 2016

400 KV Transmission & Sub-Station completion is over achieved in 4 years only of 12th Plan
HVDC and 765kV will be the key focus area.

IEEMA Division Wise Growth Index

Period: April-December 2015 over April-December 2014

S. No.Name of Division% GrowthObservations

Overall growth in Power & Control Cables

2Capacitor1.7Growth in HT Capacitors Decline in LT Capacitor due to lack of domestic orders
3Instrument Transformer6.6Growth in CTs – Indoor & Outdoor, mostly from Domestic orders for Medium Voltage & growth in PTs – CVTs & EMVTs supported by export

Increase in Pin, Disc, Long Rod up to 220 kV. Growth in applications based insulators except for Insulators for Transformers

5Energy Meter13.6

Growth in Single and Poly phase Meter – Domestic & Exports

6Rotating Machine4.6

Growth for frame sizes above 225 for LT Squirrel Cage Motors, Recovery in HT Motors & Flame proof motors; FHP single phase Motors growth consistent

7Surge Arrester-12.4

Decrease in Surge Arresters, increase in export of Porcelain

8LV Switchgear6.2

Growth in MCB, ELCB, ACB; S/F & F/S  decline in Contactor and Motor Starters

9MV+HV Switchgear0.8

Growth in breakers for 110 & 220 kV only, decrease for other

10Tr. Line Towers-14.0

Decline continues in domestic orders   & growth in export orders

11Conductors20.6Growth continue in domestic off-take

Growth for 110 to 400 kV Transformers, decline in distribution Transformers.

10% Decline in OBP is a concern!
