India Evolution of Electricity Generation by Fuel 1971 - 2005  

Grid Summary

Power generation from renewable sources, mainly small hydro, wind and bio, requires exploitation to supplement conventional power. The aim is that at least 10 per cent power generation installed capacity in the country, with 4-5 per cent share in the electricity mix, should come from renewables by the end of the 11th Plan. Out of the overall target of 70,000 MW power generation installed capacity addition during the 11th Plan period, 14,500 MW (about 20%) capacity addition is proposed from renewables. 3.1.2 A bulk of the proposed renewable power capacity addition is expected through private investment, for which a suitable policy environment would need to continue. Alongside, measures would need to be taken to reduce capital cost of renewable power projects, increase capacity factors, with the aim of reducing the unit cost of renewable power generation. Eventually, since renewable power would need to compete with conventional electricity, the challenge is to align it in terms of reliability, quality and cost, which can be achieved to a large extent by addressing the aforesaid issues…more information.

India’s achievement in poverty reduction is one of the leading factors in the global action against poverty. The Millennium Project Report states that “with more than 2.3 billion people in these two countries (China and India) alone, their major advances in poverty reduction drive developing world averages.” India’s Tenth Five-Year Plan (2003-2007) included targets of human development that can be monitored, consistent with, but more ambitious than the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The Eleventh Five-Year Plan (2008-2012) proposes state-specific targets. The Government has launched several large programmes with regard to the MDG. The areas that require redoubled efforts include literacy, nutrition, maternal mortality and child mortality. The responsibility of implementing most of the social sector programmes relating to the Goals lies with the provincial governments. The National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme, with an annual allocation of $2.5 billion, guarantees 100 days of work to every household. The Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission has allocated $7 billion over a seven-year period to provide basic services to the urban poor in 63 major cities. The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (Education for All Campaign), launched in the year 2000, is a national programme to make elementary education accessible to all. The National Rural Health Mission is focused on basic health-care delivery systems through a synergistic approach focusing on sanitation, water, nutrition, and health care.…more information...more information.

The MDG data presented here is the latest available from the United Nations Statistics Division. The World Bank has recently released new poverty estimates, which reflect improvements in internationally comparable price data. The new data estimates set a new poverty line of US$1.25 a day and offer a much more accurate picture of the cost of living in developing countries. They are based on the results of the 2005 International Comparison Program (ICP), released in first half of 2008, EIA Energy (2007E), EIA South Asia Overview(2006), Rural/Urban Electricity consumption (per capita).
