The earlier Conferences in the biennial series on Green Power were also well received.

  • 1st International Conference on ‘Green Power- The Need for 21st Century' at New Delhi (India) in February 1997
  • 2nd International Conference on 'Accelerated Development of Hydro Power Resources in the 21st Century' at Three Gorges Project Site, China in October 1999
  • 3rd International Conference on ‘Eco Friendly and Efficient Power Development in the New Century’ at New Delhi (India) in November 2001

Delegates from both developed and developing countries participated in these conferences and discussed technological advancement that had taken place in power generation in the area of improved efficiency and environment.


Amongst the problems that confront the Power utilities/ developers regarding sustainable power development are issues like raising new capital, refurbishment of existing assets for maximizing output, acquiring new technologies/ expertise for upgradation of standard of design & manufacture, installation and operation & maintenance of such assets etc, environmental concerns etc. Certain environmental concerns transcend the local/ regional ambit and have global consequences- the most important of them being emission of green house gases.

GREEN POWER 4' provided a forum where all these concerns were discussed and where the utilities, investors, designers, equipment suppliers, consultants, environmentalists and other interested agencies/ experts interacted on all facts related to the industry.


During the year 1999, the World energy generation was 9722.55 Mtoe*, where as in Developed (OECD) countries the generation was 3790.28 Mtoe and that of Asia was 933.61Mtoe**. The electricity per capita consumption was respectively 2280, 7841 and 519. India had a generation of 409.79 Mtoe and the electricity per capita consumption of 419. The demand for energy in India is growing at the rate of over 6%. The present installed capacity is about 104,000 MW with peaking shortage of about 12.2% and energy shortage of 8.1%.

The future power requirement are expected to increase at the rate of 7% compounded and the additional capacity of about 52000 MW is required to be added during 10th Plan and about 100000 MW in 10-12 years from now. India, therefore offers a big market in all the fields of power development, renovation and modernization of old units, transmission and distribution of electricity and consultancy etc. for a larger participation by private sector. It is important that growth models that are followed should lead to sustainable energy development for improved quality of life.

* excludes Netherlands, Antilles and DPR of Korea
