Atomic Energy has a key role in reducing the carbon intensity of the overall Power sector of India. Thermal power generation from all sources contributes 234,048 MW, which is 60% of the total installed power while renewables, hydro and nuclear contribute 95,875 MW (25%), 51,220 MW (13%) and 6,780 MW (up to 2%) respectively.

Nuclear power, being a non-intermittent and concentrated source of power with negligible carbon footprint, is an essential component of the Indian power-mix to meet the International environmental commitments of India.
