India faces electricity crisis as coal supplies run critically low

The Guardian says India is facing a looming power crisis, as stocks of coal in power plants have fallen to unprecedentedly low levels and states are warning of power blackouts.

States across India have issued panicked warnings that coal supplies to thermal power plants, which convert heat from coal to electricity, are running perilously low.

A worker monitors coal being carried along conveyor ramps at a coalmine near Ordos in northern China’s Inner Mongolia autonomous region.

According to data from the Central Electricity Authority of India, nearly 80% of the country’s coal-fired plants were in the critical, or “supercritical” stage, meaning their stocks could run out in less than five days.
