National Open Access Registry (NOAR) has successfully gone live from May 1, 2022.
NOAR has been designed as an integrated single window electronic platform accessible to all stakeholders including open access participants, traders, power exchanges, national/regional/state load despatch centres (LDCs) for electronic processing of short-term open access application thereby automating the administration of the short-term open access (STOA) in inter-state transmission system (ISTS). The NOAR platform will act as a repository of information related to STOA in ISTS including standing clearance issued by regional LDCs or state LDCs and STOA granted to the open access customers, and make such information available to the stakeholders online. Payment gateway provided for making payments and integrated with NOAR will facilitate financial accounting and tracking of STOA transactions. NOAR will enable seamless market participation by the open access consumer with easier and faster access to the short-term electricity market.
