System planning


The Bureau has a general duty under Article (54) (8) of Law No (2) of 1998, as amended, to:

“ensure the operation and development of a safe, efficient and economic water and electricity sector in the Emirate”.

In order to fulfil this duty the Bureau reviews in detail the annual planning statements which are required from ADWEC, TRANSCO and (starting 2006) the Distribution Companies. These statements give a forward view on proposed expansion of infrastructure, new connections and the associated capital expenditure requirements needed to meet forecast demand growth. All of these statements are approved by the Bureau.

a) TRANSCO’s 7-Year Planning Statement

Abu Dhabi Transmission and Dispatch Company (TRANSCO) is obliged under Condition 15 of its licence to prepare planning statements for its water and electricity transmission system, in a form approved by the Bureau, showing the expected capacity, forecast flows, fault levels and loading on each part of the transmission system for the following 7 years.

The statement enables any person seeking the use of the transmission system to identify and evaluate the most suitable opportunities available for connection. The statement also allows the Bureau to evaluate the proposed system development plans as well as to check the coordination of such plans with other sector participants, in a particular ADWEC and the Distribution Companies.

b) ADWEC’s 7-Year Planning Statement

Article 32 of Law No (2) of 1998 places a general obligation on ADWEC to determine annually the requirements during the next 5 years for additional electricity generation capacity. Condition of 18 of ADWEC’s licence requires a projection of demand in each of the 7 succeeding years and relevant plans for securing additional capacity. The Bureau reviews this statement each year and in particular checks against TRANSCO’s 7 year planning statement for consistency and overall efficiency in development of the sectors infrastructure.

As part of the new price controls starting January 2006 (and with appropriate modification to licences) the distribution companies are required by the Bureau to produce a 5-year planning statement. The form of this statement is approved by the Bureau and is required to contain as a minimum, the forecast demand growth, capital investment requirements and proposed infrastructure projects for the succeeding 5 years.

d) Security standards

Abu Dhabi Transmission and Dispatch Company (TRANSCO) is obliged, under condition 19 of its licence, to prepare security standards for its water and electricity transmission systems and to have them approved by the Bureau. Similarly, the distribution companies are required under their licences (condition 25) to prepare a security standard.

The purpose of these standards is to specify the security of supply criteria used in the planning and operation of the electricity system to ensure continuity of supply for TRANSCOs customers. The Bureau works closely with TRANSCO to ensure that the standards are adhered to and customers receive the levels of service set out within the standards. The performance of TRANSCO with regards to security of supply and other factors are explained more in detail under ‘Monitoring performance’.

TRANSCO’s Electricity Transmission System Security Standard and the Distribution Security Standard have been constructed to deliver a high level of performance from the transmission and distribution networks and follow international best practices in design and planning of the electricity system.

Abu Dhabi Transmission and Dispatch Company (TRANSCO) is obliged under condition 15 of its licence to prepare statements for its water and electricity transmission system, in a form approved by the Bureau, setting out the basis of charges for connection to and use of its system.

The objectives of this statement are to enable any persons seeking use of the transmission system to make a reasonable estimate of the charges to which they would be liable for the provision of such services. The statement also outlines the cost elements of a connection that would be funded by the proposed customer and those that would be funded through use of system charges which as contributed by all customers.

f) Distribution connection charges methodology

At present the distribution companies follow a simplified form of charging for new connections which is based on the requested size and length of connection. The Bureau has developed in consultation with the distribution companies a more comprehensive method of charging which reflects the true cost of various types of new connections and which recovers an appropriate level of upstream infrastructure costs based on shallow charging that may arise from such connections.
