Forming a part of KPMG International's Think BRIC! series of country reports, this publication assesses the impact of the global financial crisis on the Indian power sector and highlights the key trends and challenges that are likely to shape the evolution of the sector over the next decade. With a GDP of USD$3,356.9 billion, India is currently the fifth largest consumer of energy in the world. Despite the global financial crisis, the Indian economy is set to grow at over 9 percent over the next decade, boosting electricity consumption levels to 1,200 TWh by 2020. To meet this demand, the total generation capacity will have to be increased to 241 GW. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), India will require a total energy-related investment of about USD$960 by 2030. The government will also set up an independent regulatory system to encourage and support private investment in the sector. This report attempts to identify investment opportunities in electricity generation in the country.
