After the thorough study of the present market, we learned that there isn't much scope for the general public to become aware of the regulations which guide the power sector of our country. In fact, even people working in the power sector, like those who are related to power generation, transmission, distribution, operation and maintenance, etc, but not directly related to power business and regulatory matters, are ignorant of such various rules and regulations. Current power market is consumer-driven, and hence it is very important on the part of the consumers and other utilities to have knowledge about these regulations in order to maximise their output, enhance their profit, and in the same place shielding themselves from various kinds of gaming by other competing utilities. The one who has full knowledge of such rules and regulatory matters can efficiently manage their business, extracting maximum gain in this competitive market and will rise to become the final champion in the market. This book starts from the genesis of power industry in India, covering in its path the Electricity Act and earlier legislations and legal background, overview of the Indian Power Sector, Role which the Regulators play in efficient running of this sector, Indian Electricity Grid Code, Presence of Load Despatch Centres and their functions, scenario of Open Access in power Sector in India, Tariff determination and its structure, Power Exchange, evolution and expansion of Renewable Energy Sector in India and efficient energy management. The aim of writing this book is to reach out to more and more people. This book will be of great help to power industry professionals, who will finally know what their effort is finally yielding to. Thus it will increase their interest as well as efficiency. Each step is interlinked, so the final profit will be the compound gain of each individual step. The book will also be useful to aspiring power engineers and power management students, who can have a broad outlook of the Indian Power Sector as a whole. Lastly, the general public will also be benefitted as they are the one who ultimately pays

This publication focuses on the impact of tariff orders (distribution) issued by nine SERCs (state electricity regulatory commissions) in India during 2003/04, 2004/05, and 2005/06. The states covered are Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Delhi, Jharkhand, Kerala,Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Uttarakhand, and West Bengal. The analysis has been undertaken based on data and information available up to January 2007. The book assesses whether the orders have resulted in reducing regulatory uncertainty and information asymmetry, and led to better performance of the distribution utilities. Different indicators have been used to assess the impact on consumption and access, efficiency, financial performance, competition, and consumer-related issues in the power sector of these states. In addition, various parameters have been studied to assess whether the regulatory systems follow the principles of good regulation in these nine states. br>The commercial loss (without subsidy) incurred by state power utilities increased from Rs 197 220 million in 2003/04 to Rs 221 290 million in 2004/05. In view of the huge losses being incurred by the utilities, the tariff determination function forms a central part of the reform process. A comprehensive survey of tariff orders issued by these SERCs for the distribution licensees has been undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of regulatory orders in the electricity sector. It assesses whether the orders have resulted in reducing regulatory uncertainty and information asymmetry and better performance of the distribution utilities. However, tariff orders are only one index of effectiveness of the regulatory commissions. It is recognized that there are many other important functions of the SERCs besides tariff-setting, and some of them have also been covered in this study.In addition, other documents available in the public domain, including the Power Sector Rating Report, prepared by the Ministry of Power, Annual Report on the Regulation in practice: impact of tariff orders on the Indian electricity sector Working of State Electricity Boards and Electricity Departments, 1 and the Report on Restructuring of APDRP (Accelerated Power Development and Reform Programme),2 were also studied.

This publication evaluates the performance of the World Bank Group (WBG) during the 1990s in promoting private sector development in the electric power sector in 80 countries. Main findings include that where countries showed a commitment to advancing reforms in promoting private sector development and where programmes were properly implemented, the expected benefits were delivered. However, quality of outcomes depended on the objectives pursued and on types of assistance provided, with most countries remaining in the early stages of reform.
