India should achieve energy independence by 2030: Kalam

Submitted by aftababedin on Thu, 2007-02-01 13:16. India News

Hyderabad, Feb 1 (AINS) President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Thursday said India should achieve energy independence by 2030 through hydel capacity, nuclear power and non-conventional energy sources like solar and wind power besides thermal power.

Delivering the convocation address at the 77th annual convocation of Osmania University here, he said that based on the progress visualised for the nation during the next two decades, the power generating capacity has to increase to 400,000 Megawatts (MW) by 2030 from the existing 130,000 MW.

"In 2030, the hydel capacity is expected to contribute 80,000 MW. Large-scale solar energy farms could contribute around 55,000 MW and wind energy can contribute 64,000 MW. The nuclear power plants should have a target of 50,000 MW. The balance 15,000 MW will be generated through use of solid bio mass and municipal waste," he said.
