New Report Available: Interim / Mini Power Franchisee Market in India 2013

There are exciting developments in the broader private participation in Indian Utilities in - Network O&M, Customer Services and Revenue improvements. While most heard models are Delhi PPP model; Bhiwandi Input Based Franchisee model; Orissa's Smart metering model; and J&K's new PPP Concessionaire model; a new Interim/Mini Franchisee model is building fast traction.
Alike other models, the Interim Franchisee model is similar turnkey Network, O&M and MRBD Management, but works on much smaller aggregations like malls, townships, SEZ, airports etc. This small volume aggregation comes at much reduced operational & financial risks, offers definite returns, and allows easy entry for new players because of no strict QRs. The model has high scalability in growing Metros and Tier-2/3 towns with multiple aggregations, allowing good economy-of-scale. It also offers high economy-of-scope, as same competence can be extended to undertake broader EE and utility O&M projects.

pManifold Team has dived deeper to research this emerging model and proudly present to you our new report 'Interim / Mini Power Franchisee Market in India 2013'. (See Table of Content and Executive Summary here).

Some add-on top level takeaways and benefits of this report: 
  • This model also known by 'Single Point Connection' is operating in 4+ states (Maharashtra, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Punjab) and is poised for fast growth with rapid urbanization and integrated townships development
  • This model has high scalability, and with its proximity and stickiness to clustered end-customers, it could become precursor to bigger Smart Grid and Energy Management Solutions deployment
  • Current service providers in this space are non-organised and fragmented. There is good scope for competent products, solutions and service providers to offer O&M; Metering, Billing and Collection (MBC); Customer Services; Back-up power supply provisioning; and Loss reduction
  • This could be good go-to-market opportunity to build QRs for bigger Input Franchisee projects:
    • Metering, EE and allied product/solution companies to build service portfolio and co-create their offerings with end-customers
    • International players and PE Investors to capture market share of scalable utility O&M Indian business
    • Domestic Infra players to build B2C customer-centric services expertise and QRs
