India’s plan for energy independence

India needs 400GW of power in 2030 thanks to the Thorium energy forum and Kirk Sorensen for pointing it out

Kalam said that hydroelectric capacity can be increased to 80,000 MW, solar energy to 55,000 MW, wind energy 64,000 MW and nuclear power plants have a target of 50,000 MW capacity. The remaining gap of 15,000 MW can be conveniently filled using solid bio mass and municipal waste, he pointed out. India is now targeting to establish coal-based units with an overall capacity of 56,000 MW by 2030.
