Why Should the Industry worry? No Water, No Power!

Water in a coal-based power plant is heated and turned into steam for power. Power plants require a substantial amount of water for cooling purposes and for operations. But nearly two-thirds of India’s power plants are located in water-scarce or water-stressed areas. And nearly 80 percent of the plants planned for the future will be located in such areas. This conflict illustrates the importance of taking water related risks into account when planning future developments. Huge investments are at risk.

Over 80% of the new power capacities are planned in water stresses areas

Most of the thermal power plants in India lie in the water stressed areas and in a need to suffice this need they could create imbalance on a social front where drinking water could take a hit to meet growing demand for water by the power plant. Water supply to the existing plants and the new ones to come is likely to be a very big challenge as there is uncertainty associated to sustainable supply of the resource. Every 1 MW of thermal power plant requires over 33,000 m3 of water / year. For sure over 200 GW of thermal capacity seen by 2020 would witness water shortage.
