The new generation of India’s power plants will start rolling out on September 2018

Indian power generation capacity is set to hit 100 GW for the first time in 2019, with power generation of 2 GW per annum rising to 2 GW from the current 3 GW, the country’s Central Electricity Authority said on Monday.

The authority also said the country will reach 100GW of installed capacity by 2021.

India has an installed capacity of around 830 GW, up from 740 GW in 2016.

In 2020, it had just over 700 GW.

The country’s power sector is the largest in the world, accounting for almost 70% of the world’s electricity production, according to the World Energy Council.
