India currently suffers from a major shortage of electricity generation capacity, even though it is the world's fourth largest energy consumer after United States, China and Russia. Shortages of fuel: despite abundant reserves of coal, India is facing a severe shortage of coal. The country isn't producing enough to feed its power plants. Some plants do not have reserve coal supplies to last a day of operations. India's monopoly coal producer, state-controlled Coal India, is constrained by primitive mining techniques and is rife with theft and corruption; Coal India has consistently missed production targets and growth targets. Poor coal transport infrastructure has worsened these problems. Many villages also suffer due to their locations where transmission of electricity is the major problem such as villages present at hilly areas. Improper transmission lines decreases the efficiency and also increases the cost of maintenance. The effect of improper transmission lines could be dangerous to the life of peoples. Air Compressed power plant includes use of atmospheric air to produce power which is easily available everywhere. The method of power production is conventional that is using turbine and generator.
