3rd Thermal Power India 2009

India Core and Council of Power Utilities organized the third edition of 'Thermal Power India'- a conference & exhibition series focussing on issues in the power generation industry covering coal, gas & oil power generation. The Thermal Power India series offers a unique platform to learn, discuss and exchange experience about the major structural, technical, managerial & regulatory changes and business opportunities in the power generation segment amongst various stakeholders.

To meet the capacity addition target of 78000 MW during 2007-12, massive resources would be required. According to the estimates of Government of India, investments of more than 100 billion dollars would be required in power generation in the next ten years. As such, significant project opportunities are expected in the power generation sector and the interest in the sector is at an all-time high.

‘3rd Thermal Power India 2009’ offered organisations with business interests in the region to play a major role in one of the world's fastest developing power markets and a premium platform to meet decision-makers, policy planners, business associates & prospective clients.
