Over the last 50 years, India has achieved tremendous growth in its power sector. The Plant Load Factor (PLF) of power plants, on an average, has increased from 45% to 75%. Few Indian power plants are running at 100% PLF.

The main objective of this summit is to discuss the necessary steps required to acheive this target. This summit also aims at encouraging the power sector to provide reliable, affordable and environment friendly power on a sustainable basis.

Various activities taken up by these representatives include collation of data, plant visits, and analyzing and developing a best-practices manual. They have also visited many different world class power plants in countries including UK, USA, Japan, Canada, and Australia. They will be presenting their reports during the summit.
