CEA brings out draft resource adequacy framework for reliable and secured power supply

The Central Electricity Authority has prepared Draft Guidelines for Re­so­ur­ce Adequacy Planning Framework for India, which can be adopted by discoms to plan for resource adequacy. Resource adequacy is the ability of an electric power system to serve load across a broad ran­ge of system operating conditions. The adequacy plan also helps discoms plan their resource requirement optimally, leveraging the benefits of the diversity of power requirements among states, thereby redu­cing the power procurement cost.
