Water use efficiency in thermal power plants in India

With more than 1.2 billion people, India is the second most populous country in the world – and according to estimates, it will be the most crowded nation by 2025. In parallel to its rapid population growth and increase of water consumption in all sectors, the country’s per capita water availability declined threefold over the past six decades (from over 5,000 m3 in 1951 to 1,600 m3 in 2011). Agriculture, which accounts for 85% of all water use, continues to be the national priority. Taking these factors into consideration, the combined demand for water is likely to reach or outstrip availability by 2050. This alarming projection calls for water to be mainstreamed in all planning activities nationwide.
