Industrial consumers set up captive power plants (CPPs) to meet their energy requirements to hedge against irregular power supply and high grid power tariffs. The research tracked captive capacity of 63,808 MW (above 1 MW plants). An analysis of this tracked capacity shows that coal is the preferred fuel for captive generation.

Renewable energy based captives (bagasse, wind, biomass, solar and small hydro) also accounts for a significant share in the tracked captive capacity. The cost economics of various renewable energy technologies have turned favourable in recent years with falling equipment prices and high impetus on the sector by the government.

Captive power generators have the option to sell surplus power in the short term power market comprising bilateral traders and power exchanges and earn additional revenues. Together, bilateral trading and power exchanges market was estimated at about Rs 140 billion in 2015-16.
