Decommissioning coal power plants older than 25 years on priority could result in total savings of Rs 37,750 crore, a study by Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) said.

Another study by CEEW suggested that power distribution utilities or discoms in India could save up to Rs 9,000 crore(USD 1.23 billion) each year by prioritising coal power despatch based on efficiency rather than the prevailing system which prioritises based on variable costs.
