Daily Asia Power Energy, Septyember 12, 2008 - India's coal red light

"India's coal red light"

‚h‚† you have money, you can construct how much ever, power plants, but the fuel problem was substantiated. This is saying we have had long before.
This is simple logic, however, developers simply used to concentrate to power plant construction. China's Electric Power Development was the example, I think I can say. China is now the supply of coal difficult situation, and the government has started its consideration of the administrative integration of coal and power generation.

India is now doing exactly this growing problem. Power Secretary Anil Razdan today's statement, which is based on a very short article on Economic Times symbolizes all that. From 2007 to 2012 before, 70,000 MW of power development is planned and out of it, 60,000 MW coal-fired power must be developed. Razdan today's brief remarks to feel the content taht he tried to fire this administrative integration between power and coal, I myself,reading.

China's coal and power to be integrated of the administration may not so hard, but India may have a lot of trouble. Prime Minister Singh's short words may not move such a country. And central to the mood of the state government had him follow me it is no guarantee. Razdan' hidden chest to try to track short-term need.

India's coal, compared to China, potentially a big problem. Japan Electric Power Research Commission said, India's coal reserves of 253.3 billion tons, 10 percent of the world as a whole. This amount is in the United States, Russia and China are followed by the world's fourth largest. Last year, 2006 to 2007 the total volume of 1.11 billion tons, of which 0.243 billion tonnes of imports. India is the importer and that is, Indonesia, Australia and South America. Power came from coal is 70 percent.

India's coal is somewhat concentrated in the eastern part of unevenly distributed. On coal mining, the Ministry of Coal is administrating independent from power, and the Coal Corporation of India CIL is controlling total production of 85 percent. Participation by the private companies, such as Tata Steel is limited mainly for power generation and private entities. Power Ministry is currently being carried out large-scale coal-fired UMPP plan, the Ministry of coal and coal supply contract is important for the 10 projects.

I have to pay attention to these issues, while some information about India's coal'd like to have an interest. Also, India's coal has a problem with the quantity and quality problem. It is important, however, also involving the Ministry of railway transportation problems.
