Managing Committee List for the year - 2023-24
Managing Committee Members
Being an industrial association serving since 1945, the Coal Consumers’ Association of India (CCAI), has been relentlessly rendering its valuable services to all the member companies from both Power and Non-power sectors. In recent years the Association has enhanced its services in sync with the evolving market conditions in order to better serve its constituents and plans to further expand and diversify its scope of activities in years to come.
The coal sector in India as well as around the world has gone through a sea-change in the last year with demands of dry fossil fuel increasing manifolds and a revitalized Industrial sector following a major slump during the spread of COVID-19. Globally, the environmental impact of the usage of fossil fuel has been the focal point of discussion but curbs on the supply of natural gas and crude oil in the aftermath of the Russia-Ukraine conflict have brought back the relevance of coal even in many European nations.
In India, production and despatch of coal especially to the Power Sector has achieved unprecedented growth that has helped the nation ensure energy security even amid high power demand. Coal supply to the Industries has also relatively enhanced recently and is expected to increase further in the coming months. Domestic coal production is expected to boost further through the gradual commissioning of the captive and commercial coal blocks which may cater to the demand of coal-consuming sectors. It is also expected that Government initiatives to better the coal evacuation and transportation facilities will be able to match the handsome production growth in coal sector.
As the President of this age-old Association, I invite the generators, industries, business suppliers and service providers at large for handholding as their valuable support and advice would lead the association to scale new heights.
