On an average, the country’s telecom tower network consumes over 11 billion kWh annually, and this is likely to increase to 17 billion kWh by the end of 2016. Hence, with anticipated high growth in the end user sectors of diesel gensets in India, the demand for diesel gensets in the country is expected to grow at a healthy pace during forecast period.

“Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has mandated telecommunications companies to switch from diesel gensets to renewable sources of power generation, as the total switch-over cost from diesel gensets would save nearly 2 billion litre per year of diesel, amounting to around USD1.19 billion annually. This is expected to curb the carbon footprint in the country over the next few years. In addition, the Department of Telecommunications has mandated many telecom companies to increase the proportion of hybrid-powered tower sites to 75% in rural areas and 33% in urban areas by 2020. All these developments are expected to positively influence the country’s diesel gensets market over the span of next five years.” said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research based global management consulting firm.
