Global Electricity DSO Profiles Report 2020

I am pleased to inform you that Global Transmission is working on and will soon release the Global Electricity DSO Profiles Report. The report will provide detailed profiles of around 250 distribution system operators (DSOs) or distribution utilities operating in over 75 countries in six regions — North America, Latin America, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. There will also be a country profile for each of the 75 countries.

The report will have seven distinct sections.

Part 1 will provide the executive summary of the report.

Part 2 of the report will discuss the key trends in the global electricity distribution sector. It will analyse the past growth in electricity sales and network, evaluate the operational and financial performance of DSOs, examine past and future trends in capital expenditure, and highlight the major initiatives and key focus areas of leading DSOs.

Part 3 of the report will compare the growth in distribution line length, number of substations, electricity sales and customer base of leading DSOs from 2014 to 2019.

Part 4 of the report will compare the operational and financial performance of leading DSOs. The performance of DSOs will be compared on parameters such as distribution losses, SAIFI, SAIDI, revenue from distribution sales and net profit.

Part 5 of the report will analyse the past and future capital expenditure programmes of leading DSOs.

Part 6 of the report will comprise detailed profiles of leading 250 DSOs across the globe. These DSOs own and operate a major share in the distribution market (in terms of electricity sales) in their respective countries.

The section will also comprise country profiles of over 75 countries — two in North America, 14 in Latin America, 18 in Asia, 25 in Europe, six in the Middle East and 11 in Africa.
