Krishnan & Associates Releases In-Depth Analysis of the Indian Power Generation Market

STAMFORD, CT--(Marketwire - January 6, 2010) - Ewire -- Krishnan & Associates, Inc., has released an updated and detailed study on emerging trends in the Indian Power Generation Industry, analyzing the past history, current state, and future scenarios of the Indian fossil-fuel fired power sector.

The Government of India has embarked on an aggressive plan to increase power generation capacity. Key factors fueling India's power generation initiatives include the growing need for reliable and affordable energy, demand for electrification for the vast rural areas of the country, and increasing average household incomes.

The study -- "Indian Power Generation Market Strategic Review & Forecast - 2010," (http://www.enstreet.com/ViewArticle.aspx?cid=4431) analyzes the current electricity generation profile, generation capacity additions and boiler additions from a short-term and long-term perspective. Real-world bottlenecks impeding India's aggressive growth plans include equipment availability, investment limitations, and manpower availability. Actions undertaken by the Government of India to mitigate these issues are explored in this study. The study also examines environmental emission regulations that are planned to control pollutants resulting from growth in fossil-fuel fired power generation capacity. Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Sulfur Dioxide (SO2), Particulate/VOC, and Other Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP) regulatory limits are discussed. The Government of India's position on CO2 emissions is also highlighted.

In making the announcement, Ravi Krishnan, Managing Director, Krishnan & Associates, Inc., said, "India is one of the fastest growing power generation markets in the world. With most worldwide economies caught in flat or slow growth patterns until the economic recovery is complete, the high-growth Indian market presents significant, current opportunities for sales, technology partnerships and other forms of collaborative arrangements for equipment and service providers worldwide."

With first-hand business experience in the Indian power sector and numerous ongoing interactions with power generation companies, OEMs, regulators and state agencies within India for business development and senior level executive and technical placement, Krishnan & Associates is uniquely qualified to provide critical insight for equipment & service suppliers or organizations contemplating business development, marketing or investment activities in the Indian power generation sector.
