Quality power will be made available to consumers anytime, anywhere in the state in next five or six years if the plan envisaged int he draft power policy becomes a reality.

In exercise of power conferred under Section 178 of the Electricity Act, 2003 (the Act), the Commission has prepared the draft notification of Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (Terms and Conditions of Tariff) Regulations, 2019 for the tariff period commencing from 1.4.2019.

Scaling up the use of renewable electricity is critical for achieving climate goals, but currently only a quarter of the power mix is sourced from renewables.

Draft tariff regulations (2019-24) are positive for regulated utilities as base RoE remains unchanged at 15.5% (our expectation: cut to 14%). Key overhang of cut in RoE is behind company – a major positive.

Ministry of power recently released guidelines for charging infrastructure which states that private charging at homes, offices, is now permitted and soon people can charge their EVs at their homes. Electric vehicle owners can soon charge their vehicles at their homes.

Worldwide, around 1 billion people currently lack access to electricity, the vast majority in rural areas. A real opportunity exists to now meet this challenge with private sector solutions for off-grid renewable energy, either via solar-battery mini-grids or solar home systems.

The latest edition of the Regulatory Indicators for Sustainable Energy (RISE) finds that in the past decade, the number of countries with strong policy frameworks for sustainable energy has more than tripled since 2010, with a dramatic increase in the uptake of renewable energy and energy efficiency targets.

The CDM has by now become an established mechanism for crediting climate friendly projects. Projects involving displacement or saving of grid electricity must calculate their emission reductions based on a grid emission factor, which needs to be determined in accordance with the rules set by the CDM Executive Board.

In many countries, the production of off-grid electricity from renewables is largely unrecorded, but is believed to be expanding rapidly. This trend has been driven by numerous factors, including falling costs, innovation and supportive public policies.
