For an entire month in October of last year, power consumption was 97.84 BU.

So, extrapolating the half-yearly data gives enough indication that energy consumption could see double-digit year-over-year growth this month, experts say.

Data showed that electricity consumption rose 11.73% in February.

Energy consumption showed improvement after the lockdown of economic activities after April 20.

After a six-month gap, power consumption grew by 4.6% in September this year to 112.43 BU against 107.51 BU the same month last year.

Earlier this month, Energy and New and Renewable Energies Minister RK Singh also said: “In September our demand for electricity was higher than in September 2019. So growth has resumed. Despite the fact that the COVID problem persists, the growth in our energy use and demand has started. “

Peak power demand met, the country’s highest single-day electricity supply, from October 1 to 15 was recorded at 170.04 GW (recorded on October 7 and 8).

The peak demand demand satisfied for the month of October last year was 164.25 GW (recorded on October 14, 2019).

Peak electricity demand in September this year grew 1.8% to 176.56 GW, down from 173.45 GW a year ago, the data showed.

Satisfied peak electricity demand had experienced negative growth from April to August this year due to the pandemic. Satisfied peak demand fell to 24.9% in April, 8.9% in May, 9.6% in June, 2.7% in July and 5.6% in August.
