1 The new INOGATE Project Electricity & Gas: AHEF 53.AM John Swinscoe, Michael Emmerton Yerevan, August 2014 BUILDING PARTNERSHIPS FOR ENERGY SECURITY

2 Scope AHEF 53.AM 2 To propose a tariff methodology that compensates ENA for avoidable losses caused by lower than normal power factors in the consumption of large consumers To make recommendations regarding enabling modifications to legislation To propose an approach that would lead to a reduction in the technical losses in the distribution system and consequent improvement in the security of supply

3 Agenda 3 Observations & Findings Reactive Power Tariff Options Implementation

4 Observations 4 ENA supplies 400 consumers at 33kV; 3,500 at 33kV; 16,000 large consumers at LV ENA has installed 5,268 interval meters Day / night energy rate tariffs apply to all consumer classes At present charges are not applied explicitly for reactive energy, power factor or capacity The PSRC has the power to implement tariffs without the need for changes to the law In addition to ToU energy charges, EU practice is to levy reactive energy charges and kW capacity charges – it could be reasonably expected that in time Armenia will follow EU practice

6 Findings 6 There are no technical barriers to introducing a kVA demand charge for 11kV and 33kV consumers – The charge could be applied according to a fixed rate of AMD 2 250kVA per month – The charge rate could be linked to a consumer’s kW consumption Low voltage consumers appear to be too small to consider for power factor correction incentive Power factor improvement is a benefit to the generation and transmission sectors Distribution technical losses could be reduced by up to 2.7% of ENA’s energy purchases

7 Reactive Power Tariff Options 7 Tariff Option 1: A day / night energy rate tariff with addition of a kVA demand charge 1st Step 2nd Step UK Power Networks33%90% Central Networks33%- Scottish Power33%- United Utilities33%- Scottish & Southern Energy -- Western Power Distribution 50%- CE Electric UK-- Tariff Option 2: A day / night energy rate tariff with a kVArh charge linked to the consumer’s kWh Note: 33% represents a power factor target of 0.95; 50% represents a target of 0.9

8 Tariff Analyses 8 Inputs 1.ENA’s annual load duration curve 2.ENA’s typical daily load profiles during the summer and winter peak period 3.The count of ENA’s large customers by voltage level customers 4.kWh, kVArh and power factor of ENA’s 11kV and 33kV customers (or a statistically valid sample) 5.A technical loss estimate for the distribution network In practice some limitations due to availability of data Sources ENA and from World Bank tariff study (2013) and USAID load forecast study (2012)

18 Tariff Analyses 18 Proportional Charges for High Load Factor

19 Implementation 19 ENA can improve on the accuracy of the assumptions used to demonstrate kVA tariffs through load research before a PSRC submission The penetration of interval meters covers all 33kV and 11kV consumers and supports kVA charging Billing system changes will be required for kVA or kVArh charge; proportional charges for high LF a complication to deal with Consumer awareness and public relations will be challenging …
