    This Winter Delhi's Peak Electricity Demand might reach 5,400 M Exceeding Last Year's Level

    November 29, 2021 - New Delhi Times


      New Delhi, Nov. 29 -- Last winter, peak winter electricity consumption in the BRPL and BYPL sectors was 2,091 MW and 1,107 MW, respectively. This year, BRPL and BYPL are scheduled to reach 2,315 MW and 1,140 MW, respectively.

      BSES discoms are well prepared to provide sufficient power to their 46 lakh customers throughout the winter months. Long-term agreements from power facilities, including hydro and Delhi-based gas-fueled generating units, form the backbone of BSES' power-supply arrangements throughout the winter months.

      BSES additionally receives 440 MW of solar power from SECI, 250 MW of wind power, and 25 MW of waste-to-energy generation from Waste-to-Energy. It is also aided by the installation of 118 MW of rooftop solar electricity in South, West, East, and Central Delhi.

      Aside from these, BSES discoms use methods such as banking, reserve shutdown, power exchange, and ensure sufficient spinning reserves to dispose of surplus power while maintaining a stable power supply. In the event of an unforeseen event, BSES discoms will purchase short-term power from the exchange at reasonable rates.

      Advanced load-forecasting statistics and modeling approaches, which assist the discom in effectively forecasting the power demand, are adding to these efforts. Other states that want extra power during the winter months will be able to borrow surplus power from BSES discoms. During the summer, this stored power will be available.

      With states like Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttarakhand, BRPL plans to bank up to 452 MW. BYPL, for its part, expects to bank up to 200 MW from places such as Meghalaya, Sikkim, and Uttarakhand, where it had taken the amount over the summer months.
