  • Utility CEO Forum on Demand Side Management

    Demand Side Management (DSM) despite being one of the least cost resources of electricity, has not been able to take off in India at a large scale. Though some progress has been made in the form adoption of state DSM regulations by State Electricity Regulatory Commissions (SERCs), enforcement of these regulations continues to be limited. The responsibility of on-ground implementation continues to rest with the distribution companies (discoms) who have not been able to undertake large scale programmes due to several technical, economic and financial barriers.
    Understanding the constraints faced by the discoms, Shakti conceptualized the 'Utility CEO Forum on Demand Side Management' and to provide a platform to the discoms to share knowledge and experiences on design, development and delivery of megawatt scale DSM programs in the country. Shakti engaged PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to be the secretariat of the forum. Mr. Gireesh Pradhan, IAS (Retd.) chairs the meetings of the forum in an honorary capacity.
    The forum meets every quarter to discuss solutions to barriers that impede scaling up of DSM programmes. At the end of every meeting, the forum finalizes the theme for the next meeting, based on the which the secretariat prepares necessary reference material for discussion.
    Another critical objective of the forum is to disseminate the ideas and activities of the forum to a larger audience. To this effect, the forum has invited Regulatory Commissions and other technical experts, based on the theme of the meeting, to hear their views and opinions.

  • Development of Standard Offer Programme for Scaling Up Implementation of Energy Efficiency
  • Sector Electric Utilities

    Undertaken By International Institute for Energy Conservation(IIEC)

    Undertaken By base All India

    Year 2015

    Standard Offer on energy efficiency is a mechanism for acquiring demand-side resources under which a utility or a government agency purchases energy savings and/or demand reductions based on a predetermined rate. Shakti has supported this innovative concept to design and implement the standard offer mechanism to boost DSM and energy efficiency markets in India.
    Under this initiative, we supported the development of India’s first-ever Standard Offer Programme (SOP) on energy efficiency in Puducherry. The programme supported LED lighting interventions covering 750,000 LEDs and provided a demand reduction potential of approximately 48 million units per annum for a period of 10 years. With a total investment of USD 3.5 million, the programme was successfully implemented by Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) and also received substantial support from the Puducherry Government.
    The rollout of the programme has given the much needed impetus to energy efficiency investments by providing a business case to mainstream energy efficiency in the utility power procurement process. Therefore, we believe there is considerable merit in exploring the next phase of this program. To this end, we are currently undertaking a study to extend the SOP approach to other technologies. We will develop standard protocols and roadmap for large-scale implementation.

  • Market Research of Agriculture Pump-sets Industry of India
    SECTOR Electric Utilities // Undertaken By Netscribes India Pvt.Limited // YEAR 2012
  • Sector Electric Utilities

    Undertaken By Netscribes India Pvt.Limited

    Undertaken By base All India

    Year 2012

    This assignment was initiated to conduct a market research of the agriculture pump-sets industry in India to understand the barriers to improving the penetration of energy efficient agriculture pump-sets. Based on the barriers, the study recommends ways in which market, awareness and technical barriers can be overcome to change the buying behaviour of consumers towards efficient pump-sets. The findings of the study have fed into the efforts of our grantee to explore and design a market transformation programme on irrigation pump-sets.

  • Sector Electric Utilities

    Undertaken By Mercados Energy Market International

    Undertaken By base All India

    Year 2010

    This was a designing exercise to establish the contours of a regulatory directive on electricity distribution utilities for mandatory procurement of Demand Side Management resources. This study lay out a conceptual framework for instituting a market-based mechanism to attract greater private sector participation in Demand Side Management activities.

  • Strengthening Policy and Institutional Responses for Enhancing Energy Efficiency of the Indian Economy
  • Sector Electric Utilities

    Undertaken By Prayas: Prayas (Initiatives in Health, Energy, Learning and Parenthood)

    Undertaken By base All India

    Year 2009

    Under this grant, Prayas provided advisory support to the Forum of Regulators (FOR) and the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) for design and implementation of multi state programs for Demand Side Management. A big policy win has been that BEE has obtained initial approval from the Government for budgetary support to fund the first multi state program. A complete implementation of the multi state program for all the major energy consuming appliances is likely to result in a saving of around 4000 MW per year for the next decade. Based on the experience from the Indian multi state program, Prayas worked collaboratively with other global partners, and offered significant inputs for development of a Super Efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment program developed under a multi country partnership framework led by the US Department of Energy.
