- Indian Railways (IR) has set a target of achieving 100 per cent track electrification by December 2023. As of March 2021, IR has electrified 42,869 route km (rkm), which accounts for 66 per cent of the total broad-gauge network. At present, electrification of the remaining 21,820 rkm is in progress.
- In 2019-20, an all-time high level of electric traction was recorded with the electrification of 5,782 rkm of tracks. However, the lockdown following the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic significantly slowed down electrification works during the first half of financial year 2020-21. As against a target of 4,056 rkm, around 3,000 rkm of electrification works were completed in 2020-21. IR has almost reached normalcy in operations now, and is hopeful of achieving its target of 6,000 km for the current fiscal year.
- A greater emphasis is also being laid on reducing traction and non-traction bills. IR is procuring cheaper power, adopting energy efficient practices and engaging in power trade to optimise its energy generation and utilisation. Further, IR is ramping up its renewable energy capacity. About 100 MW of solar plants have been commissioned on the rooftop of various buildings including 900 stations, and 400 MW are under different stages of execution. Besides, 130 MW of wind power capacity has been commissioned.
- IR has also increased the production of electric locomotives. It has not only discontinued diesel locomotive production, but also plans to convert most of the existing diesel locomotives into electric ones. It has set a target to produce 725 electric locomotives in the current financial year. Further, it is producing modern electric locomotives with three-phase technology and regeneration capability.
- Going forward, IR’s electricity requirements will continue to grow as it pursues greater electrification. The deployment of mechanised technologies is expected to increase in the coming years. IR’s growing energy requirements and future plans present significant opportunities for power producers, renewable energy developers, technology providers, and manufacturers of rolling stock and electrical equipment.
- The mission of this virtual conference is to discuss the electrification plans, progress and targets, examine new opportunities, highlight the experience of contractors and identify the unresolved challenges. The conference will also showcase the latest technologies, innovations and noteworthy projects.
