eC2: Enabling Private Sector Participation in Electricity Distribution

Deadline: 14-Nov-2019 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time ā€“ Washington D.C.)

U.S. Electricity Output Rose 6.2% From A Year Earlier

Policy makers acknowledge the role of private sector in distribution but would want to understand business models that may be suitable considering the local context of states in India. Till date only two cases of private sector participation in the Indian electricity distribution (under Licensee mode) have been tried in the states of Delhi and Odisha with mixed results. Beyond these two examples, other models of private sector participation (PSP) such as distribution franchises are also prevalent in the country and have met with mixed results. Further, Govt. of India in the past had also drafted an amendment bill to Electricity Act for introducing carriage and content separation, which may be another approach to encourage competition in the electricity distribution sector.
