@The break up of renewable energy sources (RES) is: wind power (26,866.66 MW), Solar power (6,762.85 MW), Biomass power & gasification (4,831.33 MW), small hydro (4,273.47 MW), Waste-to-energy (115.08 MW).[5]

For the state wise allocation of the installed utility power capacity, refer to States of India by allocated power capacity.

The following lists name many of the power stations in India.[6]

Non-renewable[edit]

Nuclear power[edit]

Nuclear power is the fourth-largest source of electricity in India after thermal, hydroelectric and renewable sources of electricity.[7] As of 2013, India has 21 nuclear reactors in operation in 7 nuclear power plants, having an installed capacity of 5780 MW[8][9] and producing a total of 30,292.91 GWh of electricity[10] while 6 more reactors are under construction and are expected to generate an additional 4,300 MW.

Twenty One nuclear power reactors operated at seven sites by the Nuclear Power Corporation of India has an installed capacity of 5,780 MW,[1] 1.9% of total installed base. India ranked seventh in number of operated reactors (21) and fourteen in total installed capacity 5780MW.

Thermal power[edit]

Thermal power is the "largest" source of power in India. There are different types of Thermal power plants based on the fuel used to generate the steam such as coal, gas, and Diesel. About 71% of electricity consumed in India are generated by thermal power plants.[1]

Coal[edit]

More than 62% of India's electricity demand is met through the country's vast coal reserves.[1] Public sector undertaking National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) and several other state level power generating companies are engaged in operating coal-based thermal power plants. Apart from NTPC and other state level operators, some private companies are also operating the power plants. Here is some list of operating coal-based thermal power plants in India.[18]

Gas-based[edit]

The total installed capacity of Natural gas based power plants in India, is nearly 24,508.63 MW.[1] Here is a list of plants operating and waiting for natural gas to start operations.[28]

Diesel-based[edit]

The total installed capacity of major grid connected diesel-based power plants in India, is 993.53 MW.[1] The installed capacity of captive power DG sets is estimated to be nearly 90,000 MW.[32] Here is the part list of grid connected plants.

Renewable[edit]

India was the first country in the world to set up a ministry of non-conventional energy resources, in early 1980s. India's cumulative grid interactive or grid tied renewable energy capacity (excluding large hydro) has reached about 42.75 GW,[33]

Hydroelectric[edit]
