The power sector is always strongly correlated to economic activity and is receiving its share of investor attention as India’s post-Covid-19 recovery continues.
India's leading integrated power producer, the public sector undertaking (PSU) NTPC controls around 25 per cent of India’s power capacity. It continues to increase installed capacity, in thermal as well as renewables (solar, wind, green hydrogen) and hydropower and pumped hydro, and also has backward integration into coal mining, and explored nuclear.
In a recent announcement, it claimed that the group capacity including JVs, and subsidiaries has reached 73,824 megawatt or MW (73.8 gigawatt or GW). This includes the trial operation of the first unit of 800 MW at Telangana Super Thermal Power Project in early September.
