Integrated Resource Planning for Electricity Distributing Utilities in India

Identifying the barriers that discourage the adoption of integrated resource planning by Indian power distribution companies, this paper points to feasible conditions in which these could be overcome. Using the case of the Bangalore Electricity Supply Company and the available documentation, these barriers have been classified as financial, technical and operational; for each, a possible solution is suggested. The study also identifies conditions that would be sufficient for integrated resource planning to be practised, including providing at least a specified level of electricity services, and minimising costs, environmental impacts and additional investments.
