COAL-BASED POWER GENERATION 2022

  • Coal-based power generation in the country is gradually moving from being the main source of baseload power to playing more of a supportive role in the grid for balancing variable renewable energy generation. India’s current coal-based capacity of 209 GW constitutes 54 per cent of the total installed capacity compared to over 60 per cent 4-5 years ago. Meanwhile, its share in the power generation mix stood at around 70 per cent during 2021-22 (as of November 2021), down from 76 per cent back in 2015-16.
  • With the rapid transition towards renewable energy, thermal power plants (TPPs) are undergoing cyclic and part load operations. This trend is expected to gain further momentum especially in light of India’s recent commitments at the COP26 climate summit, to increase non-fossil capacity to 500 GW and to meet 70 per cent of energy requirement from renewable energy sources by 2030. Further, as India aims to “phase down coal”, the coal-based power generation segment would need to work towards measurable reduction in emissions.
  • This is evident from recent policy measures such as the government allowing thermal generation companies to supply renewable power to consumers under existing PPAs and set up renewable energy capacity by themselves or through developers via open bids. Also, the power ministry has advised coal-based TPPs to mandatorily use 5 per cent blend of biomass pellets, to solve the problem of air pollution due to the burning of farm stubble and to reduce carbon footprint of TPPs.
  • On the emission control front, bringing much relief to gencos was the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change’s (MoEFCC) new order on location-specific, category-wise compliance deadline. This gives the majority of TPPs time up to December 2024 to meet the emission norms. As per the new timeline, 79 TPPs aggregating 23 GW (within a 10-km radius of the NCR or cities that have a million-plus population) have been given a compliance deadline of December 2022, while the majority, that is, 449 TPPs aggregating 163 GW have to meet a compliance deadline of December 2024. The ministry has for the first time notified a penalty in the range of Re 0.05-Re 0.20 per kWh to be levied on TPPs for non-compliant operations beyond the deadline.
  • Gencos on their own are cognisant of the new and changing requirements and have begun taking measures to successfully transition to a flexible regime. They are adopting new-age digital and automation solutions as well as scaling up their O&M and asset management strategies manyfold. The operators are transitioning to condition-based monitoring, and predictive and preventive asset management strategies along with technologies such as AI, ML and AR/VR tools to maintain their competitive edge.
  • That said, coal-based power generation continues to remain stressed due to the issues of coal shortages and poor coal quality plaguing the sector. Recently, several states in the country witnessed electricity shortages owing to insufficient domestic coal and spiralling imported coal prices. In addition, mounting discom dues, ageing plant fleet, fly ash management and judicious water consumption continue to be some of the other areas of concern for gencos.
  • Going forward, with the changing capacity mix, coal-based generation capacity in India is expected to peak at about 250 GW by the end 2030, according to NITI Aayog. It further adds that coal-based generation is expected to slow down a few years later and peak by the year 2040. Its share in the total power generation mix of the country is expected to decline to 50-55 per cent in the next 10 years. In addition, the think tank has proposed the formulation of a scrappage policy for TPPs, with around 54 GW of coal plants likely to be considered for retirement by 2030.
  • The mission of this conference to discuss and analyse the new and emerging role of coal-based power generation as well as the key issues and challenges facing the segment. The conference will examine emission norms compliance by TPPs and the impact of recent developments on the segment. It will also showcase emerging technologies, new-age digital and automation solutions for TPPs as well as the best practices in O&M and asset management.

GAS-BASED POWER GENERATION 2022

  • Gas-based power plants, both open cycle and combined cycle, require the least amount of time for start-up and the lowest per megawatt energy for ramping up operations. In view of this, the role of gas-based power plants in grid balancing is being relooked at by grid operators, especially given the high renewable scenario of 500 GW targeted by 2030. Gas-based power plants offering faster ramp rates can play a significant role in providing round-the-clock power and balancing intermittent renewable energy sources.
  • However, owing to the shortfall in domestic natural gas supply and relatively high cost of imported R-LNG, the country’s gas-based generation capacity continues to record subdued performance and sub-optimal utilisation levels. India’s installed gas-based generation capacity of 25 GW constitutes a 6 per cent share in total capacity. Meanwhile, during 2020-21, the share of gas-based capacity in the all-India generation stood at 4 per cent. Around 14 GW of gas-based capacity is stranded due to no availability of gas, while the remaining plants are operating at very low capacity. The PLF of gas-based plants has declined from the peak of 67 per cent back in 2009-10 to 20-23 per cent over the last four to five years amid a significant drop in the supply of domestic natural gas (mainly from the KG basin fields) in the power sector.
  • Notably, despite the decline in power demand due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there was a marginal increase in the gas-based PLF levels in the first nine months of 2020-21. This was supported by the increased use of spot LNG for generation led by subdued prices of spot LNG at $2-$3 per million British thermal unit (mBtu). With lower fuel rates, around 2,600 MW of state-owned gas-based plants of Gujarat located near import terminals (including Pipapav, Uran, Dhuvaran, Utran and Hazira units) increased their PLF levels two to three times from the previous year. However, this increase in PLF and power generation was wiped out in the following months with a sharp increase in spot LNG prices to above $3.5-$4 per mmbtu.
  • To recall, in order to revive and improve the utilisation of gas-based capacity in the country, the central government had sanctioned a scheme for the utilisation of gas-based power generation capacity for the years 2015-16 and 2016-17. As such, the scheme saw limited success, with total generation under the scheme being less than that quoted by the bidders. Furthermore, due to sufficient power in the country, many states refused to sign PPAs with gas-based plants, resulting in lower participation. Moreover, the proposal to revive the e-RLNG scheme had hit a roadblock owing to the reluctance of the state governments to extend waivers and concession in the state taxes and levies including GST on the transportation of gas.
  • That said, the revival of gas-based generation hinges on the increase in the availability of domestic gas and prices of liquefied natural gas becoming more competitive. Apart from priority allocation of domestic gas, there will be a need for policy and regulatory support with regard to the scheduling mechanism; modifications in gas supply contracts for providing flexibility to power producers in terms of the gas delivery rate and time; suitable compensation mechanisms to support the peaking operation of gas stations; and modifications in the operating norms. Furthermore, the use of automation and digital solutions as well as advanced analytics can help improve the performance of gas-based projects and adapt to the changing requirements.
  • The mission of this conference is to discuss the key challenges facing the gas-based power generation segment, and deliberate on the strategies and solutions required to address them. It will also showcase the best practices in O&M and asset management, as well as new and emerging digital technologies and solutions in the segment..
