Metering &Tariff for Energy Supply with Power Purchase Agreement




US$ 4500 Per participant


The  trend  of  the  new  electricity  markets  worldwide,  always  facing  the  challenge  of  sustainability.  In  this  training course we tackle the key factors that market players can rely on to insure sustainable electricity market. One of those key factors is the contractual relationship  that insures the appropriate legal framework between the market players. The  good  contract  is  that  always  give  a  clear  right  and  obligations  for  all  parties.  This  course  gives  the  minimum    required provisions for each type of contracts that grantee market sustainability.

Another key issue is the policy and mechanism of tariff setting. In this regards tariff is not only the price of Kwh but it also concerns all services needed in the power system for all market players. Fare and right price signal is essential not only for the end users but for service providers as well.

No  attempt  will  be  made  in  this  guide  to  discuss  particular  tariffs,  since  there  appears  to  be  as  many  different tariff  structures  around  the  world  as  there  are  utilities.  Some  tariffs  are  very  complicated  in  detail  but certain  elements  are  basic  to  all  of  them  and  are  aimed  at  encouraging  consumers  to  manage  their  power consumption in a way which reduces the cost of generation, transmission and distribution. The two predominant ways in which the cost of supplying power to consumers can be reduced, are:

  1. Reduction of power losses in the generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy. In principle the lowest losses in a power system are attained when all parts of the system operate at unity power factor
  2. Reduction of the peak power demand, while increasing the demand at low-load periods, thereby exploiting the generating plant more fully, and minimizing plant redundancy

Although the ideal condition noted in the first possibility mentioned above cannot be realized in practice, many tariff structures are based partly on kVA demand, as well as on kWh consumed. Since, for a given kW loading, the minimum value  of  kVA  occurs  at  unity  power  factor,  the  consumer  can  minimize  billing  costs  by  taking  steps  to  improve  the power factor of the load (as discussed in Chapter L). The kVA demand generally used for tariff purposes is the maxi- mum  average kVA demand occurring during each billing period, and is based on average kVA demands, over fixed periods (generally 10, 30 or 60 minute periods) and selecting the highest of these values.



The main objective of this training course is to allow the participants to be aware of the Process of  Contract  Management and  the  Challenges  facing  the  Commercial  specialist  in  dealing with their client especially in Electricity Sectors where the contracts are different from case to another. The course also focuses on the Billing and Payment conditions as well as Dispute Resolutions.   

On  the  other  hand  as  Tariff  is  the  most  important  factor  in  the Relationship  between  different  parties  as  it  has  Economic, Financial,  Social  and  of  course  Political  Impact  on  all  market players. The training course provides the participant with the type of  tariff  needed  for  all  services  required  by different  Market Players.
