On verge of retiring, thermal power producers not keen to invest 12.12.2017 All Economy & Policy Stories
Thermal power producers with three to four years shy of reaching the retirement age are not keen to invest on technology upgrade to meet the latest emission norms notified by the Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change (MoEF&CC).The ministry guidelines mandate thermal power projects to invest Rs 1-1.2 crore per Mw on installing latest equipment to meet the norms to mitigate pollution. The deadline originally fixed for compliance is the end of December this year.Older coal-fired generating units are hesitant to make capital investments. Since they run the risk of being retired after three to four years, any additional investment appears imprudent. Facing stiff competition from renewable energy sources, especially solar power in tariffs and cost of production, thermal power plants feel they should not be burdened with additional investments."No thermal power producer would like to commit on unviable investments at a time when competition from renewables is getting ...
