Although many of the trends and possible future developments explained in this chapter can be quite depressing, based on sixteen years of research on the 15 Global Challenges identified by The Millennium Project, I have come to the conclusion that we have the resources and ideas to address them, and that there is more agreement about how to build a better future than is evident in the media, yet decision-making and institutional capacity — so far — is insufficient to make the decisions fast enough and on the scale large enough to build a better future. Nevertheless, pessimism is unfounded, and it gives the excuse not to try to make better decisions that improve the future.

Water security has been defined as "the reliable availability of an acceptable quantity and quality of water for health, livelihoods and production, coupled with an acceptable level of water-related risks". A water secure world integrates a concern for the intrinsic value of water with a concern for its use for human survival and well-being. A water secure world harnesses water's productive power and minimises its destructive force. Water security also means addressing environmental protection and the negative effects of poor management. It is also concerned with ending fragmented responsibility for water and integrating water resources management across all sectors—finance, planning, agriculture, energy, tourism, industry, education and health.

Data for year India's dependence on imported energy resources and the inconsistent reform of the energy sector are challenges to satisfying rising demand. In March , the government stated that nuclear capacity would fall well short of its 63 GWe target and that the total nuclear capacity is likely to be about All of them are interconnected to some extent, except the Southern grid.

In July the Northern grid failed with 35, MWe load in the early morning, and the following day it plus parts of two other grids failed again so that over million people in 22 states were without power for up to a day. Much of this was attributed to theft. Since about India has made capacity additions and efficiency upgrades to its transmission grid to reduce technical losses getting power to load centres. In , the National Load Dispatch Centre began supervising regional load dispatch centres, scheduling and dispatching electricity, and monitoring operations of the national grid.

By the end of , the country's five regional grids were interconnected for synchronous operation with greater efficiency. India has also more than doubled the extent and capacity of high-voltage, direct-current HVDC lines since , with fewer losses over long distances than AC lines. Some reactor-years of operation had been achieved to December Almost as much investment in the grid system as in power plants is necessary. The target since about was for nuclear power to provide 20 GWe by , but in the prime minister referred to this as "modest" and capable of being "doubled with the opening up of international cooperation.

This target was reiterated late in and increased to 63 GWe in But in December parliament was told that more realistic targets were 14, MWe by and 27, MWe by In March parliament was told that the These would be at four sites identified in , but without a timeline being specified.

The prime minister said it would help transform the domestic nuclear industry, which appears to suggest lower expectations of establishing new nuclear plants with Western technology from Areva, GEH, and Westinghouse. Parliament fully supported the announcement. This would involve Rs 56 billion new investment in rail infrastructure. However, for the longer term, the Atomic Energy Commission envisages some GWe nuclear online by , and has since speculated that the amount might be higher still: GWe by , providing half of all electricity.

In March , the government stated that nuclear capacity would fall well short of its 63 GWe target outlined in the 12th five-year plan for The total nuclear capacity is likely to be about Nuclear power for civil use is well established in India. Since building the two small boiling water reactors at Tarapur in the s, its civil nuclear strategy has been directed towards complete independence in the nuclear fuel cycle, necessary because it is excluded from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty NPT due to it acquiring nuclear weapons capability after As a result, India's nuclear power program has proceeded largely without fuel or technological assistance from other countries but see later section.

Then in the load factors dropped due to shortage of uranium fuel. India's nuclear energy self-sufficiency extended from uranium exploration and mining through fuel fabrication, heavy water production, reactor design and construction, to reprocessing and waste management.

It has a small fast breeder reactor and is building a much larger one. It is also developing technology to utilise its abundant resources of thorium as a nuclear fuel. It started up in and was duplicated Subsequent indigenous PHWR development has been based on these units, though several stages of evolution can be identified: PHWRs with dousing and single containment at Rajasthan , PHWRs with suppression pool and partial double containment at Madras, and later standardized PHWRs from Narora onwards having double containment, suppression pool, and calandria filled with heavy water, housed in a water-filled calandria vault.

At the start of it said it had enough cash on hand for 10, MWe of new plant. However, it is aiming to involve other public sector and private corporations in future nuclear power expansion, notably National Thermal Power Corporation NTPC — see subsection below. NTPC is largely government-owned. The Atomic Energy Act prohibits private control of nuclear power generation, and amendments allowing public sector joint ventures do not extend to private sector companies, nor allow direct foreign investment in nuclear power, apart from the supply chain.

The 14 units MWe gross under safeguards were operating on imported uranium at rated capacity. They were downrated due to recurrent problems but have run reasonably well since. However, late in Russia deferred to the Nuclear Suppliers' Group and declined to supply further uranium for them. They underwent six months' refurbishment over , and in March Russia agreed to resume fuel supply. The supply contract was renewed in January Rajasthan 1 was downrated early in its life and has operated very little since due to ongoing problems.

It has been shut down since as the government considers its future. Rajasthan 2 was downrated in It had major refurbishment and has been running on imported uranium at full capacity. The only accident to an Indian nuclear plant was due to a turbine hall fire in at Narora, which resulted in a hour total station blackout.

There was no core damage or radiological impact and it was rated 3 on the INES scale — a 'serious incident'. In March unit 1 was shut down due to a coolant leak, and repairs ran through to May Kakrapar 2 was shut down in July and restarted in September There was widespread corrosion in both Kakrapar units and coolant channels were replaced.

The report of a high-level committee appointed by the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board AERB was submitted at the end of August , saying that the Tarapur and Madras plants needed some supplementary provisions to cope with major disasters.

The two Tarapur BWRs have already been upgraded to ensure continuous cooling of the reactor during prolonged station blackouts and to provide nitrogen injection to containment structures, but further work is recommended. Madras needs enhanced flood defences in case of tsunamis higher than that in The prototype fast breeder reactor PFR under construction next door at Kalpakkam has defences which are already sufficiently high, following some flooding of the site in The first — Tarapur 4 — was connected to the grid in June and started commercial operation in September.

Tarapur 4's criticality came five years after pouring first concrete and seven months ahead of schedule. Its twin — unit 3 — was about a year behind it and was connected to the grid in June with commercial operation in August, five months ahead of schedule. The first four are being built at Kakrapar and Rajasthan. They were due online by after 60 months' construction from first concrete to criticality, but this schedule has slipped by several years.

Kakrapar 3 became the first of the four to achieve criticality in July , and the unit was connected to the grid in January Initially this fuel will be imported as SEU.

A subsequent figure was Rs 20, crore. A long-term credit facility covered about half the cost of the plant. The turbines were made by Silmash in St Petersburg and have evidently given some trouble during commissioning.

Unlike other Atomstroyexport projects such as in Iran, there was only a maximum of 80 Russian supervisory staff on the project. Construction started in March The first unit was due to start supplying power in March and go into commercial operation late in , but this schedule slipped by six years. In the latter part of and into completion and fuel loading was delayed by public protests, but in March the state government approved the plant's commissioning and said it would deal with any obstruction.

Unit 1 started up in mid-July , was connected to the grid in October and entered commercial operation at the end of December It had reached full power in mid-year but then required turbine repairs for nearly six months. It generated only 2. Unit 2 construction was declared complete in July , it was grid-connected in August , and commenced commercial operation at the start of April Each unit is MWe net.

While the first core load of fuel was delivered early in there have been delays in supply of some equipment and documentation. Control system documentation was delivered late, and when reviewed by NPCIL it showed up the need for significant refining and even reworking some aspects. The design basis flood level is 5. The tsunami was under 3m. Another reverse osmosis RO plant is in operation to supply local township needs.

Unit 4 started up in November and was grid-connected in January , but was about 30 months behind original schedule due to shortage of uranium. The Kaiga units are not under UN safeguards, so cannot use imported uranium. Both are now in commercial operation.

In mid Indian nuclear power plants were running at about half of capacity due to a chronic shortage of fuel. Some easing after was due to the new Turamdih mill in Jharkhand state coming online the mine there was already operating. Political opposition has delayed new mines in Jharkhand, Meghalaya and Telengana.

It was expected to start up about the end of and produce power in , but this schedule is delayed significantly. In , tonnes of sodium coolant was delivered. It is not under IAEA safeguards. The reactor is fuelled with uranium-plutonium oxide.

It has a blanket with thorium and uranium to breed fissile U and plutonium respectively. Initial FBRs will have mixed oxide fuel or carbide fuel but these will be followed by metallic fuelled ones. In four sites were approved for eight new reactors. In mid construction approval was confirmed, and late in the finance for them was approved.

Site works at Kakrapar were completed by August First concrete was in July Construction was then expected to take 66 months to commercial operation. Their estimated cost was to be Rs 12, crore Rs Both these projects were delayed apparently by the reluctance of supply chain companies to provide equipment without NPCIL giving indemnity under the Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage Act.

Delays are also attributed to financial constraints. In July , Kakrapur 3 achieved first criticality, and was connected to the grid in January In April the government gave in principle approval for new nuclear plants at ten sites in nine states.

Water security

Let me briefly deal with each of them. Blessed with abundant water, sunshine and fertile land, protected by the seas to the south, virtually impassable mountain ranges to the north, thick forests to the east and deserts to the west, India was a self-contained, self-satisfied and rich civilization sonay ki chidiya stretching from Punjab and Sindh to the Himalayas, Bengal and the shores of the ocean. India was never an aggressive power since it had nothing to gain by making forays beyond its natural frontiers. Trade and cultural contacts across the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea were mostly peaceful interactions. The only threats and invasions India periodically faced were from marauders from the northwest.
