Thermal Power

Thermal power is the "largest" source of power in India. There are different types of Thermal power plants based on the fuel used to generate the steam such as coal, gas, Diesel etc. About 75% of electricity consumed in India are generated by thermal power plants.

Coal

More than 51% of India's commercial energy demand is met through the country's vast coal reserves. Public sector undertaking NTPC and several other state level power generating companies are engaged in operating coal based Thermal Power Plants. Apart from NTPC and other state level operators, some private companies are also operating the power plants. Here is some list of currently operating coal based thermal power plants in India. As on July 31, 2010, and as per the Central Electricity Authority the total installed capacity of Coal or Lignite based power plants in India are 87,093.38 MW.[11]
