Coal India: Coal continues to play key role in India's growth

2020-09-24 09:19:18   【Print】
Coal continues to be a key in India's growth story as solar power is not as economical as coal-fired electricity till affordable storage of power comes in a major way, Coal India Limited (CIL) said.

The company's argument came in the wake of a debate on the viability of coal-fired power, when solar energy is gaining momentum as it is environment friendly and considered economical.

It can be seen from a typical load curve in India that peak demand is post-5 pm and coal-based power caters to that load, Coal India Limited (CIL) Chairman Pramod Agarwal said in a recent presentation to investors. Coal-based electricity will continue to do so till affordable storage of power comes in a major scale, he said.

The effective price of solar power is ?4-4.5 per kilowatt-hour which includes production cost, duties and trading margin, while the "variable" cost for thermal power is ?2-3 per kilowatt-hour, Agarwal said.

CIL remained optimistic about the future of the dry fuel and said that its 110 ongoing projects with peak capacity of 750 million tonne are under implementation.

Altogether 18 mining projects that have been cleared by CIL in FY20 have a rated capacity of 132.04 million tonne a year and sanctioned capex of ?21,245 crore.
