DELHI, INDIA--(Marketwire - Jul 5, 2012) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources India (Delhi, India) -- In a bid to reduce dependence on the supply of power from power utilities, cement companies in India have proposed investments of about $2 billion to ramp up their captive power generation base, a move which is expected to reduce their expenses on power up to 30% and ensure a reliable power-supply. Currently, the Indian cement industry has about 4,000 megawatts (MW) of installed captive generation capacity.
