Power Sector Updates


Addition to Power Generation during Apr-Mar FY16: 23,977 MW
(excl. New Renewable Energy)

Total Addition till Mar 2016 during 12th plan : 84,991 MW
(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.
HVDC and 765kV will be the key focus area.
1200 KV transmission is reportedly started thru National Test station @ Bina (MP) in May 16
