The Indian Power League

We at Power Today, in our annual endeavour, the Power 20:20 list, have recognised the players responsible for transforming the dynamics of this sector. As a knowledge partner for Power Today 20:20 and Power Today Awards, which is likely to take place in the month of November, this year, PricewaterhouseCoopers Pvt. Ltd has extended its knowledge base support in researching the companies based on various parameters, shared by us.

For the highest growth in the ´power generation´ category (public and private)´hydro, thermal and renewable´the data collection was based on capacity addition in terms of MW, done by the respective firms for FY2014-15. For the highest ´installed capacity´ category, data collection was based on maximum generation capacity installed during the same period.

In terms of highest ´transmission network´ category (public and private), the data was accessed from public information. Although gaining access to transmission companies was easy, it was not the same for distribution, where it was rather difficult to gain access to state discoms. Here, we thus considered financial figures for FY2013-14 for state discoms, as financial data for FY15 was only easily available for private discoms.

For the ´innovative companies´ category, data for each parameter was collected based on the research and responses received to the questionnaire sent to them by us. This mainly includes innovation in management, operational processes and adoption of new technology.

Ironically, in the best selling ´power equipment company´ category´generation, T&D, renewable´one should appreciate those companies who, despite a difficult business environment, managed to post healthy financial numbers and order book for FY15.

Methodology
The assessment for shortlisting of nominees for each of the categories were planned to be undertaken by the method of self nomination by a majority of companies. In this regard, PwC suggested and designed a questionnaire for capturing data from all nominees. We circulated and collected information from various companies, though we did not receive responses to the questionnaire from all of them due to various compulsions.

Hence, the alternate was worked out by accessing data on government department and private company websites, and research and industry interactions. Industry interactions were done with individual officials in various government and private organisations to obtain an informal understanding of the assessment.

The overall analysis was done based on public domain information, industry interaction and information provided by us to PwC. The analysis was undertaken subject to the accuracy of the data/information and may provide subjective results for a few categories.
