Quick Overview

Green rating of coal-based power plants

Coal plays a critical role in our energy mix,
providing over 70 per cent of India’s electricity
supply. It is likely to remain a mainstay for several more years, given India’s immense power needs and domestic availability of coal.

But coal is also the dirtiest of all fossil fuels.
It burns to produce emissions that are a leading anthropogenic source of global warming, acid rain, smog and toxic air and water.

We need to use coal efficiently to reduce its
environmental costs. CSE’s Green Rating Project analysis of India’s coal-based power sector paints a sobering picture but also offers recommendations for improving the environmental and social performance of this important sector.
