    • Backgrounder

      Electricity is one of the key drivers for rapid economic growth and industrialization. In the competitive market, products will sustain only if companies control production costs which can be attained primarily by capping electricity procurement charges. Power cost is one of the key components for the manufacturing sector.

      The Power Exchanges are already in the 11th year of their operations and are today well accepted and trusted platforms for procurement of power. Almost all Government-owned utilities as well as Independent Power Projects (IPPs) and captives are actively bidding on the power exchanges and the prices discovered therein are accepted as reference prices for most other transactions in the market. The total generation in the country including renewable generation reached 705 BU in H1 FY 2018-19 an increase of 6.2 percent from 664 BU during the same period last year. IEX, India’s premier power trading platform is catering to over 6000 registered participants to better manage their power portfolio. Average daily trade in FY 19 is close to 6000 MW. The Day Ahead Market (DAM) and Term Ahead Market (TAM) combined traded the highest ever monthly volume of 7125 MU in Oct-18 registered 22% increase over 5829 MU traded in September’18 and 63% increase over 4358 MU in October’17.


      The primary objective of the workshop is to promote and create requisite awareness on the availability of power through Power Exchanges, various generating companies, coal, wind, solar etc. especially in view of the piquant power situation and erratic supply prevailing in the State.
