Gujarat Power Market Development Dr. KETAN SHUKLA (IFS), SECRETARY, GUJARAT ELECTRICITY REGULATORY COMMISSION
New Avenues in Power Sector The Electricity Act, 2003 and Gujarat Electricity Industries (Reorganisation and Regulation) Act, 2003 envisages various activities for taking conducive measures to Allow development of power market Envisage competition Protect interest of consumers and supply of electricity to all areas Rationalize electricity tariff Promote efficient and environmentally benign policies Open Access in Transmission and Distribution Power Trading Implement Availability Based Tariff
Making Competitive Power Market National Electricity Policy (2005) enjoins upon Appropriate Commission to undertake development of power market Power / Energy Exchanges introduced in India enabling market to discover a uniform market clearing price and market clearing volume To make electricity market competitive following elements are necessary Several buyers and sellers to avoid exercise of market power Demand and supply responsiveness to price Equal access to essential facilities transmission and distribution Liquid and efficient market places Application of Open Access in phased manner
Power Sector of Gujarat Installed capacity for Wind Power 1,790 MW Captive Generating Plant (Grid Connected) 3,033 MW Captive Generating Plant (Off the Grid) 2,531 MW Potential for Solar Power days of clear sun - solar radiation 5.6 to 6 kWh per Sq. Mt. per day Total Installed Capacity (Including Central Generation)12, 258 MW Sources: Submissions by Licensees during their filing of ARR, 2010
Power Sector of Gujarat Total Installed Capacity12,258 MW Projected Peak Demand in 2012 (As per 17th EPS 6% Growth)14,374 MW Installed Capacity Required by 2012 (at 80% PLF)18,428 MW Planned Capacity Addition by 20128,900 MW Capacity Available by MW Surplus /(Deficit) by MW
YearStateCentralPrivateTotal Cum. Add. Capacity as on was Total Capacity to double at the end of XI Plan The Commission has approved Power Procurement for 6000 MW through Competitive Bidding in various orders to be purchased by GUVNL Sugen Power Project of 1100 MW established by Torrent Power Ltd. to reduce the power deficiency in the State. Targeted addition of 3110 CKM of Transmission Lines and 60 number of Substations for by GETCO In Distribution, Constant improvement in reducing the gap between Average realization and the average cost to serve
Role of Gujarat Electricity Regulatory Commission GERC - established under Electricity Regulatory Commission Act, since April,1999. Continued functioning according to first proviso of section 82 of the Electricity Act, Tasks before the Commission : Gradual rationalization of electricity tariff so that they reflect cost of service. Improvement in quality of supply of power and better customer service. Availability of electricity at reasonable rates to the consumers. Commercial viability of the Discoms. Development of a competitive environment for efficient operations of the power sector in the state and for creating favorable conditions for investment in this sector to unlock its large potential. Introduction of open access in phased manner. Promote renewable energy sources
Open Access Open Access to transmission and distribution networks for third party use and to increase competition, promote the trading of electricity Helps Captive Generating Plants to run their power projects in efficient manner and sale of their surplus power in the market at better price – where utilities benefits to bridge demand- supply gap High Contracted Load consumers are able to procure power at cheaper rate through Open Access from the sources where it is available at cheaper rate. Initiation by GERC Capacity granted for Open Access increased from 551 MW to 750 MW. Reduced the cross subsidy charges from Rs per Unit in to Rs per Unit in Rationalized Transmission and wheeling charges
Intra-state Availability Based Tariff (ABT) Mechanism ABT – Brought about the effective day ahead scheduling and frequency sensitive charges for the deviation from the schedule for efficient real-time balancing ABT - Mechanism brings grid discipline and improve efficiency of the power system GERC Initiative: GERC is among the first regulators to introduce ABT mechanism Implementation of Intra-state ABT with effect from 5 th April which is applied to generators, distribution licensees, Captive Power Plants connected with grid.
Multi Year Tariff Introduction MYT Tariff introduced for the period for FY to FY to bring in more predictable and transparent tariff rates in the State Distribution Loss trajectory for the control period of MYT is given for all the Distribution Licensees Re-oriented tariff structure to bring in more clarity and reliability Wide participation by stakeholders during Public Hearings Emphasis the promotion of efficiency link with gain/loss based on performance of the utilities
Promoting Renewable Sources of Energy GERC notified the regulation on Procurement of Energy from Renewable Sources Renewable Power obligation revised - Specified Minimum Percentage of the total consumption of its consumers including T&D losses during year (for Distribution Licensees) Year Minimum Quantum of Purchase (in %) from renewable energy sources (in terms of energy in kWh) TotalWindSolar Biomass, bagasse and others %4.50%0.25% %5.00%0.50% %5.50%1.00%0.50% Separate RPO for wind, solar and other renewable energy based on the availability of such sources RPO applicable to the Captive and Open Access consumers/users as and when a separate notification is issued by the Commission.
REC Introduction GERC is the First State Regulatory Commission to incorporate Renewable Energy Certificate in its Regulations of 2010 Necessary provisions in the Procurement of Energy from Renewable Sources Regulations, 2010 for Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) Sale of Renewable Energy under REC Regime Sale of conventional Electricity Component to Local Distribution Licensees REC Component to Obligated Entities Gujarat Energy Development Agency (GEDA) as the State Nodal Agency For accreditation and recommending the renewable energy projects for registration Function in accordance with the directions issued by the Commission and to act in accordance to the CERC (Terms and conditions for recognition and issuance of Renewable Energy Certificate for Renewable Energy Generation) Regulations, 2010
GERC Order No.RE SourceTariff Rate Capital Cost per MW Order 1 of 2010 dated 30/01/2010 Wind Rs per Unit for project life of 25 years Rs. 500 Lakhs per MW Order No. 2 / 2010 dated 29/01/2010 Solar PV Fixed Tariff of Rs. 15 per Unit for first 12 years and Rs. 5 per Unit for next 13 years Rs Lakhs per MW Solar Thermal Fixed Tariff of Rs. 11 per Unit for first 12 years and Rs. 4 per Unit for the next 13 years. Rs Lakhs per MW Order dated 17/05/2010 Biomass Single Part Tariff: Rs per unit with accelerated Depreciation Rs Lakhs per MW Single Part Tariff: Rs per Unit without accelerated Depreciation For developers adopting two part tariff, the Commission has determined the two-part tariff for Biomass based projects to be commissioned during the years , and separately. Order dated 31/05/2010 Bagasse based co-gen Single Part Tariff: Rs per unit with accelerated Depreciation Rs. 444 Lakhs per MW Single Part Tariff: Rs per Unit without accelerated Depreciation For developers adopting two part tariff, the Commission has determined the two-part tariff for Bagasse based co-gen projects to be commissioned during various years of the Control period. For Hydel Projects the rate is Rs 3.29 per unit for and escalated at 3% - For it comes to Rs per unit
Recent Developments in RE GERC notified the regulation for Procurement of Energy from Renewable Sources Regulations, 2010 GERC determined the tariff rates for procurement of power from various RE sources Power Purchase Agreements for 365 MW Solar Projects were signed by 31 st May 2010 Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) have initiated and announced to implement a 3,000 MW Solar Park Project in the state. Under the Solar Power Policy 2009, the State Govt. allotted 716 MW of Solar Power Capacity to 34 national and international project developers Out of 716 MW, the share of Solar Photovoltaic and Solar Thermal Technologies is 365 MW and 351 MW respectively
