Coal-starved power plants may dim Diwali sparkle 18.10.2017 DNA: India
A looming power shortage may dampen Diwali celebrations for lakhs of families as twenty thermal power plants across the country are running at super critical levels and another seven in critical stage due to an acute shortage of coal. Power plants with almost 30 gigawatt (gw) or 29,142 megawatt (mw) installed capacity are either in super critical or critical condition, while 625 mw is out of the grid.

CPPs in Odisha look at imports as coal crunch worsens 16.10.2017 Business Standard: Companies & Industry
Stifled by growing crunch in coal supplies, Captive Power Plants (CPPs) in Odisha are now forced to operate at depleted capacities and are even looking at imports to overcome the deficit. Most of the CPPs are operating at about half of their rated capacities as coal stocks at their plants have dwindled to two to three days.Coal meant to be supplied to CPPs through railway rakes are pending since March this year. The woes of CPPs are compounded by a preferential treatment meted out to the Independent Power Producers (IPPs), alleged an industry source. "Coal backlog is piling since the IPPs have always got preferential allotment. This has created a situation where the CPPs have been kept waiting for months together as rakes are not available. Since rakes are not available for linkage and washery rejects, non-core sectors including CPPs are forced to buy more through e- auctions where prices have surged 50 per cent from Rs 3000 to Rs 4500 per tonne", the source added.The coal crunch ...

Govt reviews power purchase bid rules 16.10.2017 Latest News
The committee set up to recommend changes in the bidding guidelines for power projects would now build upon the SHAKTI scheme to help stranded assets get both coal supply and power sale contracts.Close to 16,000 Mw of coal-based power projects in India neither have coal supply or a power purchase agreement (PPA) with any state.
