Phasing out old coal plants can free space for 60 GW renewable power: Praveer Sinha, TATA power

Closing old coal plants which have been in operation for 25-30 years can create space for setting up 60 Gigawatt of renewable energy, according to Praveer Sinha, Managing Director (MD) & CEO, Tata Power.

He was speaking at a report launch webinar organized by Climate Trends where he talked about how closing old coal-based power plants is important from both economic and environment point of view.

“If we look at more statutory requirements, more in terms of environmental requirements, there is definitely a business case that one can say that plants which have been 25 years old or 30 years old and which are not meeting the pollution norms, they need to close down,” Sinha said.
