According to the details, NTDC has prepared an Indicative Generation Expansion Plan (IGCEP) for 2022-2031. in for power generation with cheap fuel and sent IGCEP to NEPRA for approval. NEPRA to hold hearing on 19th October 2022 for IGCEP 2022-2031 review
According to IGCEP 2022-2031, it is assumed that power demand about rise up to 44,668 MW in year 2030-2031 at 14,159 MW of cheap electricity offered made part of in power system including 4320 MW of electricity through net measurements to meet future energy and power demand of country, including NTDC and K-Electric (KE) systems.
Likewise NTDC, in its IGCEP 2022-2031, proposed to delete 19 power plants of with a capacity of 7339 MW, which currently exists in NTDC system while four power plants with power 682 MW, which currently exists in EC system are also suggested to close for the time being next ten years.
In accordance with IGCEP 2022-2031, 11 RFO run power installations, three gas power factories and five RLNG-run power plants of NTDC system; two RFO-run power installations and two operating on RLNG power plants of EC system are also suggested to close for the time being next ten years.

key a task of IGCEP should develop low-cost10-year indicative generation expansion plan for the whole country to meet the load and energy demand in in a reliable and sustainable manner, while maximizing use of local resources for energy security.
It is worth noting that the board of Directors of National Freight Forwarding Company Limited (NTDC) in held its 231st meeting on 09/13/2022 unanimously made a decision and approved IGCEP 2O22 in conformity with that’s noticeable features and provisions of National Electricity Policy 2021 and Grid Code 2022 and authorization for subordination of IGCEP 2022 for NEPRA.
