Daily Asia Power Energy, October 1, 2008 - India's power distribution reform

India's power distribution reform

Today's article; the title was so attractive about the subject, but to be honest, English was very difficult for me. I did not understand what it was saying. I thought in that the electricity transmission and distribution losses were discussed, at the beginning of the story. If so, it's the biggest problem in India in general. Perhaps, I decided they discussed on the liberalization of the electricity distribution companies for the allocation and bid to sell it in the right direction?

The last paragraph of the summary is that I thought the best summary of its contents.

"Governments and distribution utilities can unlock a huge value by auctioning franchisee areas on performance parameters. The expectations should be realistic; in some instances, the target (reserve price) was steep and kicked in early. This is counterproductive, and utilities would do well to leave a little meat in to attract reliable contenders. It should keep the incentive design simple to forestall gaming, and structure contract for a reasonable term so that bidders offer long-term solutions and aim not just at low hanging fruit."

In my notes, it is described as follows. New Electricity Business Law in 2003 in Article 62 allows, in the same region, the presence of several power distribution companies are recognized, in Article 14. In these cases, the rate regulation would be managed by the Electricity Regulatory Commission to set the maximum rate of the region. In Delhi, Reliance and Tata's power distribution company BSES are in the race.

State police have put in a crackdown on power, and to improve the distribution of power loss. If the distribution of power without loss, India's electricity demand and supply will be improved, and when I was in the discussions say, Wait a minute, had to say. Demand for power is fine, just as electricity is free of charge, then with India's agriculture is in demand same. India's agriculture and power rates are low, power is putting pressure on the economy.

Today, all that wasted time, I'm sorry you had to spend. This article is a very strange sentence, because many India-like and it may be good material for the university entrance exams in English in Japan. In India, the problem of supply shortages and electricity transmission and distribution losses are a major problem, and they are really struggling to improve. JICA and the Japanese technology, the team are also cooperating to improve power distribution.
