Power Sector

Source: Planning Department, U.P. as per Annual Plan 2014-15 

Power is the engine of growth of any developing economy. Consumption of electrical energy is a universally accepted indicator of progress in the agricultural, industrial and commercial sectors, as also of the well being of the people of the State. No major economic activity can be sustained without adequate and reliable supply of power. It plays a critical role in employment generation, regional development and poverty eradication. With rapid social, economic and industrial development of the state, the demand for electricity is increasing. In order to keep the on going pace of development, the State has recognized the need for generation capacity augmentation, strengthening and augmentation of transmission and distribution network. Prevention of theft of electricity, reduction in system distribution losses and Energy conservation will also help in reducing the load/demand on the distribution system and help in providing quality supply of electricity to consumers. Presently Uttar Pradesh is facing a peak shortfall of 2000-2500 MW. As per Eighteenth EPS, the peak demand for Uttar Pradesh by the end of 12th Plan is estimated at around 23081 MW.

 

Expected Demand & Availability

The demand of power in the State of Uttar Pradesh is expected to increase significantly in the years to come and to meet this demand there is an urgent need to augment the generation capacity in the state. To meet this objective and ensure availability of 650 Kwh. per capita by the end of 2017, the Govt. of Uttar Pradesh has encouraged Private Participation in the Power Sector. Following table shows the projection of demand and availability in XII Plan:
