Mr. Bratin Roy - VP, Industry Services, TÜV SÜD South Asia; in his recent interaction with Power Today, shares his expertise on the future of coal as a source of power generation and alternatives available based on environmental impact.
Mr. Roy was quoted saying, "From 2017, all new coal-fired projects developed in India will be required to use supercritical technology or better. Newer coal fired technologies operate at a higher efficiency, which means that they consume less coal per kilowatt/hour generated, thereby improving environmental performance. Increasing efficiency of a coal-fired power plant by 1 percent can reduce emissions by 2-3 percent”
