India : Madhya Pradesh Power Transmission and Distribution System Improvement Project

Sovereign Project | 47100-001

Madhya Pradesh power transmission and distribution system encountered a peak demand of 8,505 megawatt (MW) and served 41,392 gigawatt/hour (GWh) resulting in an unmet peak demand of 8,393 MW (17%) in 2012. Forecast sales to all customers in 2013-2014 is about 43,000 GWh, (about 600 kWh per person) and sales are expected to increase by an average of 7% per year in the 12th five-year plan period (2012-2017). There are 8.21 million electricity customers in the state, of which 6.1 million were household customers with a legal power connection, representing about 60% of all households. The increasing new connections to households, increased consumption from existing customers, and the economic growth of the state, are expected to increase the demand for electricity. Meeting this growing demand requires upgrading and expansion of the transmission and distribution network in the state.

    Description

    Madhya Pradesh power transmission and distribution system encountered a peak demand of 8,505 megawatt (MW) and served 41,392 gigawatt/hour (GWh) resulting in an unmet peak demand of 8,393 MW (17%) in 2012. Forecast sales to all customers in 2013-2014 is about 43,000 GWh, (about 600 kWh per person) and sales are expected to increase by an average of 7% per year in the 12th five-year plan period (2012-2017). There are 8.21 million electricity customers in the state, of which 6.1 million were household customers with a legal power connection, representing about 60% of all households. The increasing new connections to households, increased consumption from existing customers, and the economic growth of the state, are expected to increase the demand for electricity. Meeting this growing demand requires upgrading and expansion of the transmission and distribution network in the state.

    Quality of power and reliability of service in MP are substantially below the standards expected of a modern public electricity network, and require improvement, with investments on upgrades and reconfiguration of the medium and low voltage distribution networks. The gap between supply and demand continues to be a concern, requiring load shedding throughout the year, which is likely to continue for a few years to come. The network losses are high, especially in rural areas where distribution lines are overloaded. Un-metered connections and theft have caused the rural area losses to be about 46% in 2011. Subsidized electricity served to agricultural water pumping requires rationing to minimize financial losses to distribution companies.

    Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
    The proposed project undertakes transmission and distribution improvements in Madhya Pradesh (MP) in India, critical for meeting the growing demand for power in the state. As a follow up to the previous investments in MP, the project will undertake selective transmission system improvement, distribution system improvement and capacity building. The main objectives of the project are to provide adequate transmission and distribution capacity to supply growing power demand and reduce the system losses to ensure financial sustainability of the MP power distribution companies.
