One of the important aspects of Electricity Act'03 is to bring about completion in Indian Power Market. Short term trading in electricity is an important step in this direction. The most basic factors that influence the prices in any market are demand and supply. But in case of electricity, the prices are essentially influenced by demand and not supply. It is because the generating cost of the sellers in a power market either remains constant or varies over a narrow range.
