India’s coal-based power generation up 10.13% YoY from April to December 2023

Overall power generation rose by 6.71% during the period.

India reported a “remarkable growth” in power generation from coal from April to December 2023, increasing by around 10.13% year-on-year (YoY).

In a statement, the Ministry of Coal said the domestic generation rose by 7.14% YoY during the same period to reach 872 billion units, indicating the country’s ample coal supply to meet the rising energy demand.

Coal import for blending, meanwhile, declined by 40.66% to 17.08 metric tonnes as the country aims towards becoming self-reliant in coal production in minimising coal imports.

India sources over 70% of its power generation from coal, with the remaining generated from thermal, nuclear, hydropower, and other renewable sources.
