Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation; Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited

How can we ensure adequate investment into the power sector to ensure an optimum supply of power?

Using an econometric model, Athena prepared a power supply estimation (demand and supply) for power in Gujarat, India. The estimation forecasted up to the year 2032-33. For accuracy, the load analysis considered historical load patterns to model movement in future changes of consumer demand. It also considered various time horizons such as yearly, monthly, weekly periodicities, along with horizons for various sources of energy. It additionally presented recommendations and strategies for offloading the excess supply in the state through exchange platforms or through creation of new products.
