The Executive Exchange to India on Cross Border Electricity Trade (CBET) and Technology Enablement organized for Royal Government Bhutan by USAID’s SAREP program came to an end on December 24, 2022.

The meetings and discussions during the exchange program helped enhance understanding of Bhutanese stakeholders on power markets, regulations on cross border power trade, energy trade operations and technologies to support market participation. This will help enhance power trade and improve efficiencies of operating in power exchange.

The delegation comprising of representatives from Bhutan Electricity Authority, Bhutan Power Corporation, Bhutan Power System Operator, Druk Green Power Corporation Limited, and Department of Energy of Ministry of Economic Affairs, Royal Government of Bhutan were in India from Dec 18-24, 2022.

We would like to thank Eastern Regional Power Committee (ERPC), the Grid Controller of India LimitedCESC LimitedTata Power-DDL , and Indian Energy Exchange (IEX) for hosting the exchange team at their facilities in Kolkata and Delhi. We would also like to thank Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC), BSES Delhi and TATA Power for taking the time to interact with the Bhutanese delegation as a part of a workshop.

Such collaborations and exchanges among energy sector stakeholders in #SouthAsia will promote #ElectricityTrade, support an integrated grid and a robust #SouthAsianPowerMarket.
