Concluding Session(for NTPC Delegates only)
NTPC is India’s largest energy conglomerate with installed capacity of 57356 MW having power stations throughout the length and breadth of India.
A great place to work and dominant power major with presence in the entire value chain of power generation from fossil fuel to hydro & renewable energy with diversification into power trading, consultancy, rural electrification & coal mining.
Every fifth Bulb is lit up by NTPC in the country” – with a capacity of 15.6% of the total installed capacity in the country. This is a testimony to NTPC’s consistent focus on cost of generation & high efficiency through technology up-gradation, constant innovation and always striving for improvement in O&M practices. Ever changing Technological advancements provide opportunities to sustain in the competitive business landscape. Leveraging the pivotal role of technology, digital tools for advanced analytics and resource rationalization has been vital in bringing down the cost of generation. NTPC is constantly in the process of ushering in changes in Indian Power sector for bringing down the cost of power to end users by optimizing fuel cost through flexible utilization of coal. NTPC adopted a major cost optimization program from the current financial year through Security Constraint Economic Dispatch (SCED) plan and Discoms are increasingly turning towards NTPC to buy electricity at lower costs through SCED mechanism.
With more focus on renewables, NTPC Corporate plan envisages capacity addition of 130 GW by 2032 with a diversified fuel mix comprising 65.4% coal, 4.6 % Gas, 1.5 % Nuclear, 3.8% Hydro, 23.1% Solar & 1.5% other Renewable Energy Sources. It is imperative to facilitate large scale integration of Renewable Energy sources with the Conventional sources for uninterrupted power and stability of the Grid.
India has a plan for 175 GW capacity of Renewable Energy by 2022. NTPC has its green commitment to Government of India for developing 10,000 MW of renewable energy projects by 2022. In this endeavor, NTPC has already added 50 MW of Wind project at Rojmal (Gujarat) and 878 MW solar Power to its generation portfolio spread over various parts of country. Presently 245 MW of ground mounted and 217 MW under floating solar is under implementation ,300 MW has been won under tariff based competitive bidding, 1859 MW is under tendering and 2982 MW is under planning. NTPC Ltd has also been designated as one of the implementing agencies by Govt. of lndia for Solar Project Implementation under National Solar Mission.
NTPC has already in its portfolio 800 MW Koldam Hydro and 8MW hydro project in Singrauli while other hydro projects are in construction. With rapid increase in solar power generation in recent times, the importance of hydro power and pumped storage has also increased.
Sharing of experiences on best O&M practices, strategies for enhancing efficiency and reliability, flexible operations, peak load operations of Gas power plants, DeNox and FGD works to meet new environment norms and other recent technological developments are the takeaways from the Conference.
