Indian Utility Invests in Coal-fired Power


India’s state-run National Thermal Power Corp. (NTPC) plans to invest $10 billion in new coal-fired power stations over the next five years. During the first phase, according to Reuters, India’s biggest power producer plans to build three new plants with a combined capacity of more than 5 gigawatts (GW), nearly double the capacity of the coal-fired power plants currently being phased out. More than 300 million of India’s 1.3 billion people still do not have access to electricity.
