Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • Power trading inherently means a transaction where the price of power is negotiable and options exist about whom to trade with and for what quantum.
  • Power demand during the rainy seasons is low in the States of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh and high in Delhi and Punjab. Whereas many of the States face high demand during evening peak hours, cities like Mumbai face high demand during office hours. The Eastern Region has a significant surplus round the clock, and even normally power deficit states with very low agricultural loads like Delhi have surpluses at night. This situation indicates enough opportunities for trading of power.
  • Power trading in India is in infant stage and has high potential for growth. Provision of Open Access was a step towards commercialization of power market with high growth potential.
  • In India, Inter – regional power
    transfer capacity, according to the statistics, stands at 9000 MW. A perspective transmission plan has been evolved to install an integrated and resilient Nation Power Grid in a phased manner by the year 2012 thereby augmenting the Inter- regional transfer capacity from the current level of 9000 MW to 30000 MW.
  • According to CERC guidelines issued in May 2006, the margins for inter-state power trading are capped at 4p a unit of power traded. Total power trading volume in the past five years have increased at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17%. The entry of new players in the power trading business affected PTC’s volume, resulting in steep erosion of the company’s market share (to 46%).
