The impact of the TA will be enhanced regional power trading among SAARC countries.
The outcome of the TA will be a proposal for a SAARC regional power exchange to facilitate development of the regional pweor market. This would be based on technically and economically feasible bilateral power trade, and enhancement of this trade to enable regional participation. The regional power market would be aided by regionally harmonized principles and procedures on power scheduling, energy accounting and settlement, and network access.
Phase 1 of the TA will be confined to studying in detail the existing operational environment in the power sector in individual countries.
Phase 2 of the TA will be to identify and analyze different scenarios of regional power trade.
