New Delhi, 25th September 2013: Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power utility, announced generating over 34,682 MUs of power collectively from all its power plants in the year 2012-13 compared to 18,317 MUs in the previous year. This marks a 90% increase in generation, with the total power generation capacity of Tata Power standing at 8521 MW from various fuel sources: thermal (coal, gas and oil), hydroelectric power, renewable energy (wind and solar PV) and waste heat recovery, reinforcing its position as the largest integrated power company in India.
Setting a new record in generation performance, CGPL and MPL have contributed significantly to the increase in generation capacity, with 12,401 MUs and 3,362 MUs respectively. With a strong business presence across the power value chain the company is also one of the largest renewable energy players in the country with significant capacity in wind and solar and continues to pursue avenues to add ‘clean and renewable energy’ generation capacities to increase renewable energy portfolio.
Mr. Anil Sardana, Managing Director, Tata Power, stated, “Tata Power has transcended previous benchmarks by crossing over 34,682 MUs of generation power. It marks a significant milestone in the history of the Company by setting an example for the Indian power sector. It gives us great pride to be the largest integrated power company in India. ”
Tata Power is committed to maintaining a 20-25% share of its generation mix through non- greenhouse gas sources and generates 13% of capacity (in MW) through non-GHG (includes renewables, waste heat recovery and hydros) based sources. Due to large capacity addition through CGPL, the non-GHG capacity percentage has reduced as compared to last year. With the support of leading technological innovations, excellence in project execution, world class safety processes, customer care, and green initiatives the Company has succeeded in establishing a strong foothold across the country and overseas.
