Maharashtra government seeks clarity on cost of power from Jaitapur N-plant 25.4.2017 DNA: Top News
The Maharashtra state government has sought clarity from French officials and the French company EDF on the cost of power produced from the Jaitapur nuclear power plant. It has even said that it will purchase power from the project only if it is affordable, said government officials. The state has made its stand clear last week during the meeting between Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and a delegation led by Alexandre Ziegler, the French envoy. The state government's position on the power purchase is revealing as work on the proposed nuclear power plant is yet to begin even after years of protest from local farmers and fishermen. The Jaitapur nuclear power plant is proposed to have a 9,900MW capacity, making it the world's biggest nuclear power park once operational. As per the original agreement on the nuclear plant, the state government was to get 3,000 MW from the plant. But, with several delays and cost overruns, the state government does not want to buy power at an exorbitant cost. During the ...

Solar power sector has bright and shining future 23.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Two recent events related to India's energy security are worth noting. The first was the joint announcement by the prime ministers of India and Australia that the latter would soon start exporting uranium to India. This would need legislative approval in Australia, but Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is confident of getting that bipartisan support from his Parliament. It would be the first time that Australia would be exporting uranium to a country that has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). India refuses to sign the NPT on principle since it is discriminatory and exempts the big five of the United Nations Security Council from signing. Because of this stance, India suffered nuclear apartheid for almost three decades before the Indo-US civilian nuclear power deal led countries from the Nuclear Suppliers' Group to export nuclear fuel to India. Thus, Australia which has 40% of the world's uranium, signed a nuclear cooperation agreement two years ago with India, facilitating the supply ...
