53. NEPRA, Office of the Registrar Letter to TIP: Notices of Admission – Petitions for the Modification of the Generation Tariff for Independent Power Producer of RFO based power plants in Lahore. (May 28, 2015) (Download) Order Nepra also leaves a very small space of only 25 percent for a competitive electricity market by providing about 70pc of capacity for government projects, Chinese-Pakistan economic corridor projects, public projects, nuclear power, hydroelectricity and its recommended projects and next week public hearing for the introduction of a competitive electricity market. On the other hand, the government guarantees the purchase of electricity from projects carried out by public bodies on a “take- or pay” basis. This means that the government would be responsible for both capacity payments and energy payments from an available facility, even without generating electricity, as is currently the case. Energy projects currently in place and implemented under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) will be protected. “It was decided to introduce appropriate changes within the existing policy framework to address various electricity tariff issues,” he said in an official statement. He called on the NTDC to critically examine, with the support of the Central Energy Purchasing Agency, the impact of future electricity generation on the basket tariff, in order to carry out analyses and present the result in the next version of the IGCEP. In addition, the regulator requested that a scenario within the IGCEP be developed without any restrictions, with the exception of existing restrictions in the system, to determine the demand situation and to take into account the most recent cost estimates reflecting a depreciation and decrease in electricity demand as part of the International Monetary Fund`s lower economic forecasts. 208. TIP letter to Mr. Tauseef H.
Farooqi Chairman, National Electric Power Authority (NEPRA):Objection of Transparency International Pakistan on Processing of 40.80mw KOTO Hydropower Project Located at District Lower Dir Of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province. (August 20, 2020) (Download) He said that the revision of the national electricity policy and the national electricity plan will soon be subject to consideration by the Council of Common Interests (ICC). As part of the plan, it was decided that energy capacity should be increased each year in the energy mix, based on demand and supply, taking into account the needs of different sources – hydroelectric, solar, gas, LNG, coal, nuclear energy, etc. – to ensure that purchases are not forced as emergencies. “Why should the government guarantee electricity purchases, it should be based on demand and supply,” Leghari told the Senate briefly. He said the government was cooperating with the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) to ensure that electricity, like any other commodity, would be traded within six months. 13.
