Draft Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (Deviation Settlement Mechanism and Related Matters) Regulations, 2024

The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) has invited comments from stakeholders and the public on its draft “Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (Deviation Settlement Mechanism and Related Matters) Regulations, 2024.”

These regulations seek to ensure that grid users do not deviate from and adhere to their schedule of drawal and injection of electricity in the interest of security and stability of the grid.

What is the Deviation Settlement Mechanism (DSM)?

The DSM is a crucial component of the power market that addresses discrepancies between scheduled electricity generation and actual consumption. It ensures fair settlement for market participants who deviate from their scheduled power supply or demand.

Public Consultation:

  • Stakeholders and interested parties can submit comments, suggestions, or objections by:
    • Mail: Secretary, Central Electricity Regulatory Commission, New Delhi – 110001 or
    • Email: secy@cercind.gov.in and advisor-re@cercind.gov.in
  • Deadline for submissions: May 24, 2024.
  • Registered users can also submit feedback through the CERC’s SAUDAMINI portal.

The CERC seeks public feedback to develop effective regulations for the DSM, promoting transparency and fair practices within the power market.
