India has the fifth largest power generation capacity in the world. The country ranks third globally in terms of electricity production. Electricity production in India reached 584.22 Billion Units (BU) during April-September 2016. As per the 12th Five Year Plan, India is targeting a total of 88.5 GW of power capacity addition by 2017, of which, 72.3 GW constitutes thermal power, 10.8 GW hydro and 5.3 GW nuclear.

Renewable energy is fast emerging as a major source of power in India. Wind energy is the largest source of renewable energy in India. It accounts for an estimated 60 per cent of total installed capacity (21.1GW). There are plans to double wind power generation capacity to 20GW by 2022. India has also raised the solar power generation capacity addition target by five times to 100GW by 2022.

The Government of India has been supportive to growth in the power sector. It has de-licensed the electrical machinery industry and also allowed 100 per cent Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the sector.

With many bilateral nuclear agreements in place, India is expected to become a major hub for manufacturing nuclear reactors and associated components. Foreign participation in the development and financing of generation and transmission assets, engineering services, equipment supply and technology collaboration in nuclear and clean coal technologies is also expected to increase.
