ABSTRACT

 

The present study attempts to evolve a spreadsheet-based on scorecard that employs a number of indicators grouped together to evaluate the performance of Indian state owned electricity distribution utilities These results may be utilized by the decision makers and utility managers to identify the areas of shortcomings and flaws in the operation of the utilities and to convey the facts in a easy to understand manner to non-specialists in the relevant field and the user community. The methodology is simple and flexible enough to incorporate any number of indicators that may be representative of utility performance. The present study highlights the necessity of a rigorous and in-depth study of performance that may aid the future planners, policy makers and utility managers to ensure that the utilities demonstrate sustainable operational practice. Based on the scorecard analysis, appropriate incentive measures may also be designed to improve the performances of the state owned electricity distribution department.
