Indian Energy Exchange sees record growth with a boost in the green market
.

IEX achieves a 25 per cent year-over-year increase in electricity volume, a 20 per cent year-over-year increase in real-time market volume, and a 173 per cent year-over-year growth in green market assets by June 2024.

Indian Energy Exchange (IEX) achieves an electricity volume of 10,185 MU in June 2024, marking a 24.7 per cent year-on-year increase. The total monthly volume, including certificates at 10,677 MU, increased by 19.4 per cent yearly. 

For the first quarter of the fiscal year 2025, IEX achieved an electricity volume of 28,178 MU, an increase of 19 per cent year over year. The total volume for the quarter, including certificates, was 30,354 MU, up 20.8 per cent from Q1 FY 2024. 

According to government data published in June 2024, the country’s energy consumption reached 152.4 BUs, representing an 8.9 per cent increase yearly.

Hot weather conditions led to an unprecedented surge in electricity demand during the first quarter of this financial year. The country’s energy consumption of 452 BUs in Q1 FY 2025 was 11.2 per cent higher compared to Q1 FY 2024. During the quarter, peak demand reached 250 GW, surpassing the previous high of 243 GW recorded in September last year. Proactive measures taken by the government and the regulators, including the sale of surplus requisitioned power on power exchanges, increased fuel supply, and higher availability of generating units, led to increased sell liquidity on the exchanges, keeping the prices under control. Therefore, despite the increase in electricity consumption, the market clearing price in the Day Ahead Market during June ‘24 was ₹ 5.40 per unit, similar to last year; however, it was lower by more than 20 per cent, compared to prices discovered under bilateral contracts.
