NTPC Ltd, which has been the flag bearer for the power sector in the country in the last 45 years, is aiming to become a 130 GW company by 2032 from its current power producing capacity of 62 GW. In line with the global trend towards renewables, which is a cleaner source of energy, NTPC plans to achieve 32,000 MW of capacity through renewables or 25 per cent of its overall power portfolio at the beginning of the next decade. Currently, NTPC has 2,404 MW of RE projects under implementation, out of which 237 MW comes from floating solar projects located in reservoirs at NTPC’s existing stations. In fact, Ramagundam 100 MW Floating Solar, being set up under non-PPA mode, is the largest in the country.

India’s largest power producer, which commenced its journey on November 7, 1975, recently celebrated its Raising Day. NTPC Ltd is now gearing to steer the next phase of growth and transformation in India’s power sector that offers immense opportunities.

The gradual shift towards renewables is one part of NTPC’s commitment towards sustainable power generation and safeguarding the environment. At the same time, NTPC is currently making huge investments towards deployment of FGD equipment, whereby more than 60 GW capacity has been tendered for FGD for its various coal-based power plants, in order to cut down harmful emissions.

As part of its commitment towards the environment, NTPC has undertaken many ‘firsts’ for the sector. NTPC is working towards utilising agro residue for power generation to discourage in-field crop residue burning.  NTPC has pioneered co-firing of biomass pellets along with coal in the boilers.

NTPC power plants have also set new benchmarks in water consumption, going beyond compliances, by implementing the zero-liquid discharge (ZLD) system, and rainwater harvesting system. NTPC’s other significant undertaking is its efforts towards 100 per cent utilisation of fly ash.

NTPC has marked its presence in coal, gas, hydro, solar and wind and also ventured into biomass, waste-to-energy, mobility and now it has started exploring the captive industry. NTPC will continue to grow by aligning its development with national priorities and global changes.
