Upcoming Opportunity for Private Players: Power Generation Franchisee (PGF)

With the growing Public Private Partnership (PPP) model in power sector, there is another new opportunity for private players in Power Generation Franchisee following footsteps of Power Distribution Franchisee.

In Power Generation Franchisee model, the asset ownership will remain with generating utility itself and private player will run the unit operations to reduce the generation losses and share the profits with the utility.

This can be achieved by:

  • Improving the Plant Load Factor (PLF) trajectory & Operational Norms
  • Improving the sourcing of coal

Maharashtra State Power Generation Co Ltd, which is the second largest power producing company in India, after National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC), requested interested private firms to submit Expression of Interest (EoI) for Bhusawal and Koradi thermal power plants, which was due on Jan 2012. About 3-4 companies have submitted EoI. This will be reviewed and Request For Proposal (RFP) will be released. This model is still in very nascent stage.
