Electricity Act 2003 has distinguished "Power Trading" as a separate licensed activity with the objective of developing Power market in India to maximize resource utilization by promoting healthy competition among Power players. For this reason, Power Trading is referred to as "purchase of electricity for resale thereof". CERC/ SERCs have prescribed stringent “non-discriminatory open access” regulations. CTU/ STUs have also defined detailed open access procedures to promote Power trading operations in the country. The demand supply gap among various utilities during day and month provides opportunities for Power trading. With tightening of grid discipline by CERC regulation, the utilities are persuaded to plan their demand supply gap in advance. This provides Power trading a huge potential for growth.
