Electric Utilities

While India continues to add generation capacity, the gap between demand and supply remains wide. A major reason for this chasm is unchecked demand. The judicious use of electricity needs to be encouraged through an innovative system of incentives and penalties. Efficient usage will ensure that demand matches supply of electricity; it will also give the renewable energy sector in India, the much needed incubation period.

Electric utilities, by virtue of being the supplier of electricity, are the best placed in the power ecosystem to manage the demand of their consumers through ingeniously designed Demand Side Management (DSM). Therefore, our Electric Utility programme is working to build a case for a national mandate on Demand Side Management so that utilities are both empowered and mandated to manage the demand of their consumers.

To make this possible, the Electric Utilities programme is supporting enabling policies and regulations at the central and state level; designing programmes that can provide evidence for policy adoption, and facilitating implementation tools and aids for Industry and policy makers.
