Energy Scenario in India



Energy Scenario in India


In India and all over the world,a variety of sources of energy are in use.Like firewood,agricultural waste,animal dung and human power are the traditional sources of energy which are still continue to meet the bulk of energy requirements in rural India. These traditional fuels are gradually getting replaced by commercial fuels such as coal,petroleum,natural gas and electricity.

It has been estimated that 60% of total energy requirement in India is derived from commercial fuels and non-commercial fuels contributes the rest 40%. Total energy produced in the form of electricity,is 60% from coal,25% from hydel power, 4% from diesel and gas ,2% from nuclear power and less than 1% from non-conventional sources like solar,wind,ocean,biomass,etc.

In developing country like India-greater the availability of energy,more is the shortage. There is phenomenal increase in power generating capacity,still there is no electricity in many rural areas and even cities,electricity availbale is 30% less than the requirement.
