Energy Exchange which is perceived to be feasible only in the
surplus scenario, IEX going against the odds took the initiative
to set up India’s first power exchange even in the power deficit
scenario. Most importantly, the Exchange’s efforts paved the
way for the economy to take to its wings not only meeting its entire
demand for power efficiently but also by helping the nation to be
self-sufficient in power. Ever since its commencement, IEX has revolutionized
the way electricity has been traded. From the days of trading over
the phone, long meetings & negotiations to now just by a “single
click”. IEX in just over a year’s time has got nation
wide acceptance with total no of members and clients touching 190.
This itself is a milestone to reckon with.
