Trajectory for replacement of 58 BUs of thermal power with renewable energy by 2025-26 – Ministry of Power

The ministry of power (MoP) has issued a year-wise trajectory for replacement of 58,000 MUs thermal generation with renewable energy by 2025-26. An exercise has been carried out to assess the amount of energy from TPPs that can be replaced. Based on this, it was found that about 58,000 MUs thermal generation in central, state and private sectors can be substituted with renewable generation. RE capacity of about 30,000 MW (@22% CUF) would be required for the purpose.

Accordingly, in order to increase the uptake of renewable energy utilization and in furtherance of the national goal of achieving 500 GW of non-fossil fuel-based capacity by 2030, a target of about 58,000 MUs is fixed at national level for achievement by the end of the year 2025-26.
