List of Power Stocks in India

Power stocks

In the last month, power stocks have been in a strong bullish momentum.  The BSE power index has outperformed the Nifty 50 index and is up by 23.42% as on 20th April 2022.

Not just that, the stocks of Adani group have offered magnificent returns and a majority of them are rallying towards making a new all-time high. Adani green energy Ltd. has given  an absolute return of 53%, Adani power Ltd. has generated  an absolute return of 47% and Adani transmission Ltd. has offered a return of 15% in the last month as on 20th April 2022. So, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that power stocks are the talk of the town.

But why are power stocks rallying?

  1. As the summer season has kicked in, many states of India are experiencing a heat wave. Hence, people have increased the use of air conditioners, coolers and fans which has led to high power consumption.
  2. India is the third largest producer and the second largest consumer of electricity in the world. Almost 75% of power in India is generated from coal. Since September 2021, the demand for coal and power has skyrocketed in the international markets. Moreover, some of the major coal producing countries couldn’t produce enough to meet the overall coal requirement. Hence, because of less supply and high demand, power stocks are rallying.

With power stocks rallying, I know you might be wondering which are the power stocks listed in India. Don’t worry. Today we are going to take a look at the list of power stocks listed on the Indian stock exchanges. Let’s begin.

Overview of Power Sector in India

India is the third largest producer and second largest consumer of electricity in the world. But the country is still focusing on generating more power. Hence they have increased the installed capacity from 200 GigaWatts (GWs) to 395.09 GWs as on January 2022.

Out of India’s total installed capacity, the private sector contributes 46.80%. Until 2012, the contribution from the private companies was 27%. But later, the government came up with new policies to encourage private sector participation in the power generation segment.

The biggest advantage for companies in the power sector is that there are high entry barriers. Transmission and distribution segments are under state monopolies. So, if a company desires to enter into the power sector then they will face multiple challenges such as obtaining a distribution license, payment guarantees, selling at a fixed cost and a lot more.

So, the stocks which are currently operating in the power sector are going to stay in the game for the long term.
