●India Opening Power Sector to Private Investment, Coal Still the Fuel of Choice

With coal-fired power plants as the primary source, India’s electricity generation sector space has been dominated by the two state run big companies NTPC (for generation) and BHEL (for equipment manufacturing). However, a gradual shift is taking place with private players looking to play a bigger role in the country’s electricity generation business.
