Market Trend of the Power Industry in India

The Indian power sector is one of the most diversified in the world. Sources for power generation range from commercial ones such as coal, lignite, natural gas, oil, hydro and nuclear power to other viable non-conventional sources such as wind, solar and agriculture and domestic waste. The demand for electricity in the country has been growing at a rapid rate and is expected to grow further in the years to come. In order to meet the increasing requirement of electricity, a massive addition to the installed generating capacity in the country is required. As per the International Energy Agency (IEA) publication on World Energy Statistics 2013, India ranks 5th in electricity production and 110th in the per-capita consumption of electricity. The investment climate is positive in the power sector. Due to the policy of liberalization, the sector has witnessed higher investment flows than envisaged.

The Government of India has identified the power sector as a key sector of focus to promote sustained industrial growth. The government is targeting a capacity addition of around 89 GW under the 12th (2012?17) and around 100 GW under the 13th (2017?22) Five-Year Plan. The expected investment in the power sector during the 12th Plan (2012?17) is US$ 223.9 billion. This shows that in coming decades a boom can be expected in the sector with immense demand for trained professionals. Therefore, the career of an Energy Auditor has a bright future and opportunities are only going to rise in the coming years.
