MoP seeks comments from states and CEA on the draft NEP

The Ministry of Power (MoP) has sought comments from states and the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) on the draft National Electricity Policy (NEP).

The NEP seeks to create a financially viable and environmentally sustainable power sector furthering energy security and providing reliable 24×7 power at a reasonable price. The policy seeks to fulfill four objectives – decarbonisation and energy transition, resilient and flexible grid, financial viability of the power sector, and consumer centric approach. The ministry has sought comments and suggestions on the draft within 15 days from January 26, 2023.
