India Power Report Q4 2015 - New Report Available

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Oct 12 2015

Our view that power sector reforms would be a top priority for Modi's government is playing out. We are witnessing notable progress in the Indian power market with regards renewable energy expansion, reducing red tape for power projects and improving fuel availability for thermal generation. We believe the government will increasingly turn its attention to reforming the power distribution segment and boosting India's energy independence. Our long-term outlook for the sector is similarly positive as we believe that several fundamental drivers of growth for the sector are beginning to align in India's favour.

We forecast that electricity generation in India will grow by 6.5% in 2015, faster than 5.5% growth that we estimate the sector will have experienced in 2014. Our 2015 forecast can be attributed to the strengthening economic outlook and the reforms that Modi has started to initiate in the sector.

We have maintained our long-term forecasts for the Indian power sector, and forecast electricity generation to grow at an average of 6.2% per annum between 2016 and 2024. The outlook for the sector is extremely positive, and we believe that several fundamental drivers of growth are beginning to align in India's favour.

Key Trends And Developments

Coal stock shortages have been a persistent bottleneck for coal-fired power generation in the country over the last five years (causing widespread power shortages), as state-controlled Coal India has failed to meet its coal output and supply targets. However, the situation has improved over the last few months, as Modi's efforts to increase the availability of coal domestically - primarily by accelerating the bidding process for coal mines and implementing more stringent production oversight - are bearing fruit.
