  • The gas-based power generation segment, with around 25 GW of stranded and under-utilised capacity, could see an improvement over the next few years given the role such plants play in a high renewables scenario. 
  • Gas-based power plants are highly suited to bring in the much-needed reliability as spinning reserves due to their fast ramping and quick start time capabilities. Also, gas is a cleaner fuel than oil and coal, and releases lower emissions and no particulate matter during power generation. 
  • However, there are multiple challenges that need to be addressed for gas-based power generation to play a meaningful role in the future energy mix. A significant shortfall in domestic gas availability, along with unaffordable imported gas, has forced the existing capacity to run at a plant load factor of 24 per cent only. Policy flip-flops in recent years over domestic supply allocations have also added to these challenges.
  • Further, due to its high cost of power generation, imported LNG has become less competitive than other sources of power. This has also made it difficult to schedule such power in the merit order despatch. Stranded projects are unable to service their debt obligations and are on the verge of becoming nonperforming assets. The government’s e-bid subsidy scheme, which provided a short-term relief of two years to the segment, was rolled back in 2017.
  • On a positive note, there are interventions and proposals in the works that should help revive the segment. Studies are being done to test gas-based plants as “peaker” plants that can switch on quickly and even out supply fluctuations from renewables. According to government estimates, about 20 GW of gasbased capacity is proposed to be used as peaking stations.
  • Meanwhile, a gas auction mechanism, which involves the pooling of domestic and imported LNG, is being discussed on the lines of the e-bid scheme. Other measures that are being considered include diversion of gas from non-core sectors, moderation of R-LNG costs and the expeditious roll-out of LNG transport infrastructure.
  • Going forward, as greater demand is placed on gas-based power plants for providing flexibility to the grid, plant operators will also need to gear up to deal with O&M challenges with additional cycling. Digital enhancements, advanced diagnostics, condition-based monitoring devices and remote troubleshooting are some tools that can help plant operators manage the transition.
  • The mission of this conference is to provide a platform to various stakeholders to discuss the key challenges facing the gas-based power generation segment, and highlight the solutions and strategies required to address them. It will also provide a platform to showcase best practices, and emerging technologies and solutions in the segment.
