More than 80% of India’s electricity comes from thermal power stations,
burning coal, oil, gas and nuclear fuel. Now researchers from the
US-based World Resources Institute, after analysing all of India’s 400+
thermal power plants, report that its power supply is increasingly in
jeopardy from water shortages.
The researchers found that 90% of these thermal power plants are cooled
by freshwater, and nearly 40% of them experience high water stress. The
plants are increasingly vulnerable, while India remains committed to
providing electricity to every household by 2019.
