During February, India invoked an emergency law forcing power plants that run on imported coal to maximize output ahead of an expected record surge in power usage this summer, according to Reuters. In the notice sent to all imported coal-based power plants, the India’s power ministry said it expects them to operate at full capacity and sell power to buyers on exchanges. India’s imported coal plants have a total capacity of 17 gigawatts. In related news, Coal India Ltd (CIL) reported 20 deaths for 2022, a record low at its mines, compared to 29 in the previous years.
