Abstract: It briefly discusses some important energy problems facing India and Turkey and presents the current electric generation scenario in most of the developing countries with facts and figures in respect of India. It is hoped that, with systematic, advance planning, through measures like co-generation, energy management, and energy conservation, the electric energy supply scenario of AD 2020 will be free of the perennial problems of power shortages, voltage fluctuations etc.
