India's fast growing economy needs to add 100,000 MW power generating capacity between 2002-2012. Given limitations to the use of coal in terms of environmental considerations, quality and supply constraints, gas is expected to play an increasingly important role in India's power sector.

This report briefs NMC Delegates on the potential for gas-fried power generation in India and describes the challenges India faces to translate the potential for gas-fired power generation into reality.
