The country ranks third globally in terms of electricity production. Market Size Indian power sector is undergoing a significant change that has redefined the industry outlook. The links were subsequently upgraded to high capacity synchronous links. As of September , the Government of India launched a voluntary based programme to promote energy efficient chiller systems in India. As per government reports, about one third of the households do not have access to electricity. Many of the stranded gas and liquid fuel-based power stations would be competing with indigenous coal-based power stations in an electricity market where demand growth is not encouraging. Electricity production in India reached Tariffs in some of the agreements that State Electricity Boards SEBs have signed with renewable developers are as high as Rs 7 per unit. Electricity demand in the country has increased rapidly and is expected to rise further in the years to come. In order to meet the increasing demand for electricity in the country, massive addition to the installed generating capacity is required.
