As the country embarks on planning (1)___the 12th plan (2012-17) period, a key question mark (2)___hangs over the process is on the energy requirements.
Growth is energy hungry, and the aspirations of growing at 9-10% will (3)___ huge demands on the energy resources of the country. In this energy jigsaw, renewable energy will (4)___like never before in the 12th plan and (5)___. By the rule of the thumb, India will (6)___about 100 gigawatts (Gw)-100,000 megawatts-of capacity addition in the next five years. Encouraging trends on energy efficiency and sustained (7)___by some parts of the government-the Bureau of Energy Efficiency in particular needs to be complimented for this-have led to substantially lesser energy intensity of economic growth. However, even the tempered demand numbers are (8)___to be below 80 Gw. As against this need the coal supply from domestic sources is unlikely to support more than 25 Gw equivalent capacity. Imported coal can add some more, but at a much (9)___cost. Gas-based electricity generation is unlikely to contribute anything substantial in view of the unprecedented gas supply challenges. Nuclear will be (10)___ in the foreseeable future. Between imported coal, gas, large hydro and nuclear, no more than 15-20Gw equivalent can be (11)___to be added in the five-year time block.
(12)___ (13)___this, capacity addition in the renewable energy based power generation has touched about 3Gw a year. In the coming five years, the overall capacity addition in the electricity grid (14)___renewable energy is likely to range between 20 Gw and 25 Gw.
