The All India Power Engineers Federation (AIPEF) has demanded the national electricity policy be reviewed to maintain a balance between renewable energy and thermal energy and has urged R K Singh Union Power Minister to discuss the matter with the power engineers.
The over dependence on the private sector to achieve a target of adding 175000 renewable power and curtailment of the addition of any thermal energy is neither good for the power sector nor for the country. A major shift to renewable energy is likely to render part of coal based thermal plants idle as per new electricity policy.
