Toshiba’s technology is helping India to realize the best energy mix

While India will long rely on coal to power economic growth, the government is striving to address environmental issues and to promote diversification in the power sector. In fact, India is attempting to do something no other country has ever done before: advance rapid growth to become an industrialized economy, bringing power and light to a nation of 1.3 billion people, without any dramatic increase in CO2 emissions.

As a country that boasts some of the planet’s most impressive mountains, where waters tumble off the Himalayas and the Deccan plateau into mighty rivers, India has a great potential in hydropower, the oldest renewable energy source, with over 100 years of history. The Indian government has also identified hydro as one of the best option for helping secure a reliable and sustainable power supply, and estimates a nationwide capacity of over 145GW; current installed capacity represents only one-third of that potential. Recognizing a significant opportunity, the government is now promoting a number of hydropower plant construction projects.

Toshiba stands ready and willing to provide strong support for these plans by leveraging cutting-edge technologies and an extensive product line-up.
