Electricity Distribution Management

Programme on
Electricity Distribution Management

ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF COLLEGE OF INDIA
BACKGROUND
The performance of electricity utilities around the
developing world has witnessed considerable
volatility in the last decade even after regulatory
reforms. The rapid pace of technological
development, along with regulatory, societal and
economic factors, is affecting the way we
generate, distribute and consume electricity. In a
sector accustomed to long-term investment cycles
and stable policy frameworks, the transition to
new electricity systems has introduced policy
uncertainties and market design complexities.
Consequently, parts of the industry are becoming
'uninvestable'. A close look at the power
distribution/retail utilities in almost all the
developing countries presents a gloomy picture
with a common set of issues impeding their
growth and in turn their efficiency. Though
generation and transmission segment has been
improved substantially, the revenues originate
with the customer at distribution, so subpar
performance there hurts the entire value chain.
Persistent operational and financial short comings
in distribution have repeatedly led to bailouts for
the whole sector. The representative issues being
operational inefficiency, lack of credible
information, financial distress, lack of
transparency, minimal response to regulatory
framework, absence of insulation from
government to prevent interference and lack of
professional approach.
In the context of Indian distribution utilities,
despite the fact that almost all states have adopted
some form of restructuring and reforms as
envisaged by the Electricity Act, 2003 and
supporting acts and policies, only few States
utilities are functioning in a systematically rational
manner. Notwithstanding the enormous
investments in national infrastructure
improvement programs like RAPDRP and
RGGVY, the financial position of these utilities as
depicted by several reports is dismal.
Hence, the current focus has to be on improving
distribution management in terms of operation,
commercial and financial parameters with regular
regulatory intervention by avoiding government
interference with transparency. The capacity
building efforts in the overall integrated electricity
distribution management for the personnel
handling day to day activities must be channelized
towards instilling the sense of this ownership and
enhancing the professionalization in the staff.
Administrative Staff College of India, after a thorough
analysis of the situation worldwide, is keen to
develop the personnel in such a way that one can
understand the impact of one’s action on the entire
value chain of Electricity Distribution Management.
