India Power Trading Scenario Poll Results

This report is an outcome of survey conducted by Climate Connect India and Sustainability Outlook to judge the Indian Power Trading Scenario. Respondents to the survey included stakeholders from all market segments – generators, buyers, and traders. Respondents include BSE/NSE-listed companies, some of the largest power traders, public sector enterprises, and private sector companies.

The key objective of the assesment was to understand:

  1. How power exchange trading can drive and reform electricity market in India
  2. What are the various trading instruments that stakeholder would find most useful in increasing market liquidity

Some of the key findings from the survey included:

  1. Half of the respondents believe that the volume in India’s short-term markets is below what is seen in developed countries and more measures need to be taken to increase the traded volume. Options turned out to be the most preffered instrument to address this issue. 
  2. Nearly two-thirds of the respondents would like to see a more comprehensive implementation of open access regulations. Almost a third of respondants believed that greater flexibility for DISCOMs to choose the source of power procurement would also help the implementation of open access regulations.
  3. Low liquidity in the REC market is a clear problem recognised by all stakeholders. Key suggestions from the respondants were to lower the price band of RECs and RPO fullfillment criteria for DISCOMs.
