What is your idea about energy generation in Sri Lanka?


Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL), the electricity sector regulator, calls for  public comments on the Least Cost Long Term Generation Expansion Plan (LCLTGEP) 2018-2037, prepared by State Utility, Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB).

The LCLTGEP describes the lowest cost electricity generation sources in Sri Lanka, new plant additions, price comparisons for 20 year time period.

PUCSL expects comments from the general public In the areas shown below;Proposed (Base case) generation plan/ plant addition

  • Electricity Demand Forecast
  • Reliability criteria and economic parameters used for the plan
  • Proposed candidate energy supply technologies, their costs and efficiency parameters
  • Fuel prices
  • Renewable technologies and their cost parameters
  • Social and environmental damage cost.
  • Scenarios selected for analysis
  • Modelling tools used to prepare the plan
  • Future fuel mix and use of indigenous resources
