Indian Electricity Sector under Regulatory Regime
After the thorough study of the present market, we learned that there isn't much scope for the general public to become aware of the regulations which guide the power sector of our country. In fact, even people working in the power sector, like those who are related to power generation, transmission, distribution, operation and maintenance, etc, but not directly related to power business and regulatory matters, are ignorant of such various rules and regulations. Current power market is consumer-driven, and hence it is very important on the part of the consumers and other utilities to have knowledge about these regulations in order to maximise their output, enhance their profit, and in the same place shielding themselves from various kinds of gaming by other competing utilities. The one who has full knowledge of such rules and regulatory matters can efficiently manage their business, extracting maximum gain in this competitive market and will rise to become the final champion in the market.
This book starts from the genesis of power industry in India, covering in its path the Electricity Act and earlier legislations and legal background, overview of the Indian Power Sector, Role which the Regulators play in efficient running of this sector, Indian Electricity Grid Code, Presence of Load Despatch Centres and their functions, scenario of Open Access in power Sector in India, Tariff determination and its structure, Power Exchange, evolution and expansion of Renewable Energy Sector in India and efficient energy management.
The aim of writing this book is to reach out to more and more people. This book will be of great help to power industry professionals, who will finally know what their effort is finally yielding to. Thus it will increase their interest as well as efficiency. Each step is interlinked, so the final profit will be the compound gain of each individual step. The book will also be useful to aspiring power engineers and power management students, who can have a broad outlook of the Indian Power Sector as a whole. Lastly, the general public will also be benefitted as they are the one who ultimately pays
