NTPC invites bids for 2,000 MW of renewable energy

NTPC has invited bids to procure 2,000 MW of renewable energy (solar and wind) to be bundled with power from its non-pithead thermal power plants (TPPs). Operational and planned renewable energy units can participate in the tender. Power from TPPs will be blended with 10-20 per cent of renewable energy and these units will be used as peaking units. The move follows the MoP’s recent guidelines that give coal-fired power plants with regulated tariffs the flexibility to generate and blend thermal power with renewables.
