Scope : The Electricity Distribution Efficiency Improvement Project (EDEIP) will help distribution companies improve operations to manage the electricity supply more efficiently and increase the reliability of the electrical grid. It focuses on cost-saving interventions to increase revenue collection and reduce losses, and on modernizing operations by employing technology and information systems. The project will also invest in climate-resilient infrastructure, particularly grid stations and transmission lines, which are critical to distribution and utility services. The EDEIP will support institutional reforms to improve governance and transparency and will develop systems and practices to improve managerial performance and compliance with regulatory requirements. In addition, the project will help build the technical capacity of the distribution companies by providing training programs, tools, and equipment to improve staff performance in key utility operations.
The proposed project will support the targeted DISCOs instrengtheningand modernizingtheir electricity distribution network and operations, which should result in improved efficiency and reliable supply to the consumers. Three DISCOs namely Hyderabad Electricity Supply Company (HESCO), Multan Electric Power Company (MEPCO),and Peshawar Electric Supply Company (PESCO)have been selected. The amount of losses in these DISCOs are among the highest in the country and as a result they have not been able to meet their investment requirements and provide reliable supply of electricity. In addition to supporting the traditionalinvestments to expand and rehabilitate the transmission and distribution network being owned and operated by theseDISCOs, the proposed project will also help improve theircashflowsthrough installation of Aerial Bundled Cables (ABC) and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) in some of the high loss/revenue feeders. The project will also focus on interventions to modernizethe DISCOs. It will include but will be not limited to deployment of Distribution Management System (DMS), transformer monitoring system, provision of tools and equipment for improved O&M and safety and automation of business processes through use of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and modern information systems. The project will also includetechnical assistance to strengthen the capacity of the DISCOs and implement power sector reforms. Subject to government approval, Islamabad Electric Supply Company (IESCO) will be included for deployment of DMS. IESCO is one of the better performing DISCOs and with the deployment of DMS it will be at the forefront of latest technology to modernize its operations. The composition of sub-projects and participating DISCOs will be finalized during project preparation.A Phase 2 is also envisioned where activities could potentially be scaled up, new activities can Project completion date : 2024-12-31 12:00:00 Major organization : PESHAWAR ELECTRIC SUPPLY COMPANY Address : wapda house peshawar, mall rd, bashirabad peshawar, khyber pakhtunkhwa 25000,
