The other plants are in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, as per the analysis.
The analysis further states that the state power company Mahagenco was missing an opportunity to match shutdowns of coal units with a clean energy buildout.
The report ‘Seriously stressed and stranded’ was released by IEEFA a US-based independent organization which conducts research and analyses on economic issues related to energy and environment.
The $40-60 billion of stranded Indian thermal power assets are placing stress on a troubled banking sector and undermining the flow of capital which is critical to sustain strong Indian economic growth and a renewable energy future, as per the IEEFA report.
At Koradi power plant, two new units of a total capacity of 1,320 megawatt have got an in-principle approval to replace retiring units of around 1250MW. Stressing that Mahagenco is increasing its coal-power capacity in doing so, the analysis reveals that the power plant operated at a plant load factor of 42.55% between April to August this year, the report further adds.
