Gas-fired Power Generation in India

India's fast growing economy needs to add 100 000 MW power generating capacity between 2002-12.

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