Power generation clocks 5.55% growth in FY 2010-11

A cumulative growth of 5.55% in energy generation has been recorded during the financial year 2010-11. As compared to an actual generation of 768.42 billion units (BU) registered during the year 2009-10, around 811.14 BU has been generated during 2010-11.

As per the electrical energy generation data released by the Central Electricity Authority
(CEA), the actual generation, however, is slightly lower than the target of 830.8 BU for the period,
According to CEA, thermal power generation exhibited a growth rate of 3.81%, against the corresponding figure of 2009-10. Further, the nuclear generation achieved a remarkable growth rate of 41.04%, mainly due to improved availability of nuclear fuel to various nuclear plants. Additionally, due to revival of monsoons after two successive years of scanty rainfall conditions, generation from hydro based plants recorded a growth rate of about 10.01%.

Furthermore, imports from Bhutan also exhibited a growth of 4.69%.
During the same period, against a cumulative import target of 6.54 BU, 5.61 BU or 85.68%, was actually wheeled from the eastern-neighboring kingdom.
