Positioning nuclear power as a
sustainable energy source
NPCIL, wholly owned by the Government of India, designs, constructs, operates and maintains nuclear power stations across the country. With depleting fossil fuels reserves globally, and rising carbon footprint and the consequent environmental impact, NPCIL is playing a critical role in addressing India’s insatiable appetite for energy. With matured economies like the US, Germany, France and Japan taking a conservative approach post the Fukushima plant disaster in March 2011, NPCIL felt the need to reinforce its “safety first and production next” strategy in the 2010-11 Annual Report.
