AI is helping thermal power plants reduce costs and pollution
With AI, the startup can create a 'digital twin' of the entire process, take into account varying conditions and figure out the optimal configuration in a live setting. This helps improve efficiency and reduce fuel inputs, which in turn has an impact on carbon emissions
Despite periodic policy pronouncements to shift to cleaner fuels, coal-fired thermal power plants still account for over 70% of India’s electricity. That’s perhaps not surprising for a developing country where coal is the cheapest source of fuel. So, we can expect thermal power to continue to occupy the top slot for quite some time, overriding concerns over carbon emissions, pollution and climate change.
