Transmission Energy Purchases and Sales
In 2021, UETCL energy purchases amounted to 5,024GWh with sales of 4,818GWh. In the year 2020, UETCL experienced some stagnation in energy purchases and sales as a result of the impact of the COVID–19 pandemic. The industry there after started recovering after the restrictions were relaxed gradually through 2021.
The energy mix is computed as the proportion of transmission purchases from different technology supplies. In 2021, the largest percentage (91.2%) of transmission purchases were from Hydro (Large Hydro =79.0%, small hydro =12.2%) and other energy sources constituting only 8.8%. Overall, almost all of the energy supply was from renewable energy sources (hydro, bagasse and solar) constituting 98.5%.
Transmission Energy Losses
Transmission energy losses are computed as the percentage of energy purchased but not sold. The transmission energy losses kept fluctuating over the 5 year period with the lowest in 2019 at 3.6% and highest in 2021 at 4.1%.
