WISE was appointed by the Gujarat Electricity Regulatory Commission (GERC) for preparation of a discussion paper and associated work relating to tariff determination of the following grid-tied generation technologies: a) wind power; b) wind-solar hybrid; c) small hydro; d) bagasse-based co-generation; e) biogas; f) waste to energy. The scope of work included preparing a discussion paper on tariff consideration parameters (technical and financial) for different technologies and providing support to the Commission in incorporating material submission from public hearings.

WISE prepared a detailed discussion paper after analyzing the relevant past and current policy and regulatory approaches, and technology costs and commercial issues. WISE attended the public hearings on the tariff determination discussion paper and provided reasoned analysis of the comments. It also prepared the groundwork for the final tariff order that was issued by GERC.
