India : Renewable Projects in Uttar Pradesh to See New Forecasting and Scheduling Regulations

The Uttar Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission (UPERC) has taken note of Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited’s (UPPCL) request to modify the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) deviation settlement mechanism (DSM) regulations to take care of the state-specific needs.

The Commission stated that it would issue necessary amendments to the Regulations 2019 as required. Until then, the prevailing regulations will continue to be in force. The Commission added that the DSM would continue to be implemented for all renewable energy-based power projects, except small hydro and municipal solid waste projects. All other renewable projects will be subject to day-ahead scheduling.

The forecasting and scheduling of renewable power and compensation to be paid to electricity grid infrastructure providers in case of errors are regulated through deviation settlement mechanism. The Commission also observed that UPERC Generation Tariff Regulations 2019, had a provision that said that the state would be governed by the CERC regulations until the state comes up with its specific regulations.
