Today, the establishment of new power plants in India is strongly dependent on the import of highly volatile fossil fuels. Sustainable renewable energy is becoming an important link in industrialization and development. India is finding ways past energy related growth obstacles through versatile and efficient utilization of its abundant renewable energy resources. Energy security and environmental considerations are the two big challenges the world is facing today. India is not exceptional to these challenges but the difference is that our developmental goals are more pressing compared to the global environmental considerations and the fact that our dependence on coal in meeting our energy requirements would continue in near future also makes it further challenging.
The total installed electricity capacity in India at the end of June 2013 was 2,25,795 MW, of which 59% is coal based. Coal will continue to dominate the additional capacity to be created in the next two decades. India needs to master the coal-gasification technology so as to boost both energy efficiency and attendant security.
For over years now, Mission Energy Foundation with its expertise in organising and delivering successful international summits on the aforesaid subject & in aegis of Ministry of Coal, Fertilizer, Power & Environment & Forest; are proud to announce our 5th annual international summit COALGAS: 2014 scheduled for 9 -10 -11 April, 2014 at NDCC Convention Centre, NDMC Complex, New Delhi.
COALGAS: 2014, will comprise three days of formal presentations, interactive roundtable discussions and excellent networking opportunities, providing an ideal setting to convene with your peers to discuss both current operational & future planned gasification plants, end product markets, potential barriers & support policies as well as project economics & finance.
