Undertaken By: Multiple,    Recent Publication: 2021

India is seeking to transform its power sector in a way to promote access, reliability, affordability and sustainability. Several important policies have been announced in this regard, but there are still concerns around high AT&C losses, low quality of service, peak power deficits and high cross-subsidies. In particular, electricity tariff structures, service delivery models and distribution companies (discoms) revenue recovery models warrant attention since they play a key role in the functioning of the power sector and must be designed taking emerging developments into account. In cognizance of this, Shakti is facilitating research and analyses to identify ways to make India’s electricity sector more sustainable.
