Conventional[edit]

Nuclear power[edit]

Nuclear power is the fifth -largest source of electricity in India after thermal, hydroelectric and renewable sources of electricity.[4] As of 2016, India has 22 nuclear reactors in operation at seven sites, having an installed capacity of 6780 MW.[5][6] and producing a total of 30,292.91 GWh of electricity[7] 11 more reactors are under construction to generate an additional 8,100 MW.

All the twenty two nuclear power reactors with an installed capacity of 6,780 MW equal to 2.2% of total installed utility capacity, are operated by the Nuclear Power Corporation of India.[2] India ranked seventh in number of operated reactors (22) and fourteenth in total installed capacity.

Thermal power plant[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.[2]

Coal[edit]

More than 62% of India's electricity demand is met through the country's vast coal reserves.[2] 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.[16]
