ENERGISING GUJARAT – ENERGY IS SYNERGY

3 Apr

“Gujarat was a power deficient state but today, it is distributing 24-hour electricity to all the 18,000-odd villages in the State. With proper conservation and management of water and electricity, Jyoti Gram Yojna has changed the socio-economic conditions of Gujarat, creating a mass awareness too.” – Shri Narendra Modi

Shri Narendra Modi is a mascot of development in India. In the Energy and Power sector, the flow of Energy is Synergy. Gujarat is the only state where Power is uninterrupted and it is expected that capacity of electricity will be over 21000 mega watts by 2012 making the State the ‘Energy Hub of the Nation’.

Power is one of the basic infrastructures necessary for the Industrial and Socio Economic Development in the State. Installed capacity of the State has increased from 315 MW in 1960-61 to 13144 MW in 2010-2011. Per capita consumption of power in the State of Gujarat in 2009-10 was 1491 Units (as per CEA revised formula).

When Shri Narendra Modi took over as the Chief Minister of Gujarat in October 2001, he found the state’s power situation grim. The State has carried out sweeping power reforms and as a result of which, it now has surplus power.

Four major components that have made Gujarat reach milestones in energy sector are Wind Energy, Solar Energy, Power Generation and Bio Energy. The conducive policies with the reforms play a pivotal role in Power and Energy Sector. With the path breaking initiatives of Government of Gujarat in the energy sector, particularly in the Oil & Gas sector, tremendous growth is being witnessed in this field.
