Mapping costs for early coal decommissioning in India

The study maps the costs of an early decommissioning of coal-based power plants in India. The assessment based on the availability of the data pertains to individual cost contributors for an early decommissioning for 130 plants representing a total of 45 per cent of India’s current installed 208 GW capacity. The study further categorises the plants based on age, variable cost, efficiency, and combinations to help understand their impact on the eventual costs for retirement.
