India’s ambition to achieve 500 GW of non-fossil fuel-based capacity by 2030 is steering the nation towards innovative solutions in renewable energy. With solar and wind power at the forefront, the variability and intermittency of these sources pose challenges to grid operations.

As per the Electricity Act, 2003, CEA is to prepare the National Electricity Plan once in five years. Further, Section 73 (a) of the Act also provides the formulation of short-term and perspective plans for development of the electricity system as one of the functions of the CEA.

The Central Electricity Authority (CEA) has notified draft National Electricity Plan (Volume-II: Transmission). As per the draft, during 2017-2022, targets were set to add 110,281 ckm of transmission lines and 383,690 MVA of transformation capacity in substations.

This report provides a brief overview of the services that EVs can provide to the power system through smart charging, key challenges, and important factors to enable deployment, implementation requirements and way forward for the smooth integration of EVs in the grid.

The Central Electricity Authority (CEA) has notified the draft procedure for verifying the captive status of such generating plants, where captive generating plant (CGP) and its captive user(s) are located in more than one state.

The bidder should have executed contracts on engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis for at least one (1) no.

The booklet “Growth of Electricity Sector in India” published annually by Central Electricity Authority provides panoramic view of growth of the Indian Power Sector over the years. The relevant information and statistics have been presented in the forms of graphs, pie-charts, maps and tables.

The R&M of old thermal units are cheaper and cost effective solution in comparison with new addition of thermal capacity for meeting the surging demand in the country along with the challenges posed by integration of high level of non-fossil fuel capacity by 2030.

These regulations may be called the Central Electricity Authority (Measures relating to Safety and Electric Supply) Regulations, 2023. These regulations shall come into force on the date of publication in the Official Gazette.

This publication “All India Electricity Statistics- General Review 2023” contains countrywide statistics relating to generation, transmission, distribution and consumption of electricity by different sectors/categories for the FY 2021-22.
