Indian thermal power generation declined in June

Indian power generation declined to 97.2TWh in June, down 9.2% m-o-m and remained unchanged y-o-y. Thermal power generation declined to 80TWh, down 12.6% m-o-m and down 2% y-o-y. Indeed, coal-fired generation declined to 73TWh, down 13.4% m-o-m and down 2.3% y-o-y; while lignite-fired output declined to 2.8TWh, down 4.6% m-o-m and down 1.2% y-o-y. On the other hand, hydro-generation increased to 13.6TWh, up 9.9% m-o-m and up 11.2% y-o-y. Nuclear power generation increased to 3.1TWh, up 9.3% m-o-m and up 6.8% y-o-y.

Despite the fall in June output, Indian power generation increased to 593.5TWh in H117, up 3.5% y-o-y. Thermal power output increased to 516.7TWh, up 2.4% y-o-y. This includes the coal-fired generation, which increased to 475.1TWh, up 3.2% y-o-y. However, lignite-fired generation declined to 17.9TWh, down 1% y-o-y. Hydro power generation increased to 57.1TWh, up 14% y-o-y. On the other hand, nuclear power generation declined to 18.4TWh, down 1.4% y-o-y.
