Electricity Demand and Supply in India

Electricity demand continues to grow strongly in India, driven both by economic growth and a heatwave in the north-western parts of the country. Aggregate energy demand for FY 2021-22 across the nation was 1,380 Bn Units (BU), registering a growth of 8.2% over the energy demand for FY 2020-21. Similarly, peak power demand registered a growth of 6.7% to reach a record level of 203 GW in FY 2021-22 as compared to FY 2020-21. Peak power deficit widened to 1.2% during FY 2021-22, as compared to 0.4% during FY 2020-21, while energy deficit was steady at 0.4%.

Recent geopolitical events in Europe have resulted in a sharp increase in global fuel prices, including coal, petroleum, and natural gas. This has in turn affected the ability of a number of thermal power plants in India to generate power at viable costs, restricting their output. As a result of supply constraints in face of a growing demand for power, average market clearing price of electricity on exchanges rose to Rs. 8.23/kWh in the Day Ahead Market in March 2022.
