The Draft National Electricity Plan (Vol-I: Generation & Vol-II: Transmission) has been prepared by CEA. The Draft covers a review of the 12th Plan, plan for 2017-2022 In detail along with details for RE integration and a perspective for the period beyond 2022. While preparing the NEP, tentative demands for 2021-20122, as part of working of 19th EPS have been taken into consideration. Central Electricity Authority (CEA) has estimated an investment of Rs.2.6 trillion (~$38.2 billion) in the Indian power transmission sector by the end of 2022. These and other estimates form the base for a draft National Electricity Plan-Volume II, which would be the basis for investment and policy planning in the sector. Inter-regional capacity addition during the 13th plan (2017-22) is estimated at 45.7 GW, from the present 63.65 GW by the plan end, said CEA in the draft.
