LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN

ENERGY REGULATORY
COMMISSION

The Energy Regulatory Commission has been working


stable for 11 years since the beginning of Mongolian energy
sector reform in 2001.
The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has been
working efficiently in transferring energy sector to market
economy; improving financial and economical capability of
the energy companies and encouraging private investment
to the sector. We should address to ERC specialists that
they has contributed their great efforts to the biggest
successes that arised in the sector.
Through this 10th annual report we are introducing you ERC works performed
in 2011 and hope that the annual report contains information you need.
Taking many important measures included in the work plan to be implemented
under the Parliament Resolution #72, 2011 we have succeeded significant achievements.
Increasing consumer electricity and heat tariffs from 1 May, 2011 total sales
revenues of electricity and heat have reached at 351.8 billion tugrik which is more
than 16.1 percent or 49 billion tugrik if comparing last year performance. Moreover,
increasing tariffs, energy companies financial capability has been improved well.
We resolved liquidation of debts of 1.5 billion tugrik which had been accumulated
since 2001 and would be settled by Ulaanbaatar Electricity Distribution Network
SOJSC to Thermal Power Plants #2; #3 and #4 and further these resources were
allocated for coal mining debts. At the end of 2011 the Single Buyer collection rate
reached at 101.8 percent and accumulated debts between 2001-2010 were reduced
to 29 percent or by 4.3 billion tugrik.
In 30 June 2011 the ERC celebrated its 10 years anniversary organizing a
Theoretical and practical conference named Energy Regulation in 10 years.
According to the newly amended law in 9 December 2012 Energy Regulatory
Authority was reorganized as the Energy Regulatory Commission and further its
function and activity are extended as well as Commission shall approve methodology
for setting fuel price used for energy generation; and review its calculation; review
investment plan of licensee on expanding or renew the electricity or heat transmission
lines; and distribution networks; and to decide that investment issue by tariff
regulation; submit to the Government its proposal on subsidies for licensees related
to their tariff losses for the purpose of relieving load that comes in on consumer.

Annual report 2011

As a result of Concession Law adopted in 2010 private investors participation in


the energy sector is increasing. Energy system demand of Mongolia fully reached to
current total capacity of power plants. For the purpose of covering those increasing
demand, the ERC issued licenses under its duties for construction of 2 Thermal

Power Plants, totally 1100 MW installed capacity and construction of 6 Wind parks
which total capacity is 604 MW. Those companies obtained the licenses are foreign
and domestic private investors.
Therefore, ERC plans to cooperate with international organizations and
implement projects for the purpose of improving capacity building of ERC on
improving regulatory framework; and satisfying requirements of foreign and
domestic investors and meets with international standards.

ENERGY REGULATORY
COMMISSION

The ERC determines quality and continuity of electricity supply service by


using internationally applicable indices SAIDI, CAIDI and SAIFI.
In order to register and classify reasons of electricity supply interruptions and
to determine the numbers of interruptions in conformity with international standard,
the ERC started to register the electricity supply interruptions by using the following
3 indices from 2005:
1. The System Average Interruption Duration Index (SAIDI) the number of
interruptions per consumer per year

number of interruptions/ number of all customers/year)

2. The System Average Interruption Frequency Index (SAIFI) the average time of
interruptions per consumer per year

(duration of interruptions (min)/ number of all customers/year)

3. The Consumer Average Interruption Duration Index (CAIDI) - the average


interruption time per consumer affected by the interruption per year

(duration of interruptions (min)/ number of customers affected by the


interruptions/year)

Annual report 2011

15

Using these 3 indices, the ERC received electricity supply interruption information
quarterly from transmission and distribution companies; through integration of this
data the ERC prepared quarterly summaries in 2011.
ENERGY REGULATORY
COMMISSION

These indices were estimated for every distribution company in 2011 by reflecting
the scheduled outages, unscheduled outages, natural calamities, outages caused by
the fault of the licensee, and outages resulting from other licensees actions.
In 2011 the ISAIDI was 119 hours which was decreased by 52 percent from
previous year. ISAIFI was 12 per customer depicting a decrease of 2 units compared
with 2010.

2010.

Licensees improved their operational efficiency


In 2011, the ERC obtained and analyzed monthly information from power plants
and transmission and distribution companies on their own use of electricity and
electricity transmission and distribution losses. By informing respective licensees on
their performance, discussing quarterly performance at meetings of the Commission,
and organizing site inspections along with respective directions to licensees, power
plants of CES used 15.14% of gross generation for internal use in 2011 compared
with 15.62% in 2010. This 0.48% reduction is equivalent to 20.7 million kWh and
MNT 1.8 billion of sales revenues. Thermal Power Plants #2; #4; Darkhan Thermal
Power Plant; Erdenet Thermal Power Plant had contributed their efforts for this
achievement.

ENERGY REGULATORY
COMMISSION

As result of the related necessary measures that were taken by the management
of power plants since 2002, power plants own use has been reduced each year with
significant savings. To date, the overall decrease has reached about 30% which is
MNT 12 billion of saving.

in 2010 (30.1%) it shows 2.1 units decrease and then 2.1 million kWh electricity
saved.
Also, Dalanzadgad Thermal Power Plant reduced its losses by 0.6 units.

IV. ELECTRICITY MARKET ACTIVITIES IN CENTRAL ENERGY


SYSTEM
Single Buyer sales revenue collection reached 103, 8%
One of the main objectives of the ERC is to transform the energy sector of
Mongolia into a market oriented system. Currently, the Single Buyer model, which
is adopted in the frame of the
Central Energy System is regulated by an automatic cash flow mechanism. Spot
and auction markets are also implemented among the Central Energy System.
With the purpose of creating a market environment in energy production and
supply, the Single Buyer Model has been in place since September 2002.
Single Buyer purchases electricity from the 5 Power Plants operating in the
Central region and through import from Russia and sell it to the 10 electricity
distribution companies. Central Regional Electricity Transmission Network has been
operating as a Single Buyer since September 2002.
In 2011, the Single Buyer purchased 3844.4 million kWh of electricity, equivalent
to MNT 231.7 billion, from the generators and through import from Russia. The
amount of electricity purchased increased by 6.1% from 2010.
Annual report 2011

18

In 2001, before the inception of the Single Buyer Model, the rate of sales
revenue collection was only about 76.5%. This rate has increased every year and
reached 101.8% in 2011 and collected additional MNT 4.3 billion more than planned
(MNT 231.7 billion) in 2011 and accumulated debts of previous years were reduced
accordingly.

Activity of the electricity SPOT market


A spot market is based on the differences between the amount of scheduled
electricity generation and the amount of real-time electricity supply. As a result
of operating the spot market, power plants will try not to breach the scheduled
generation or dispatching graph. In case of breaching it, they will bear some
responsibility according to the spot market rule. In other words, trade is affected by
selecting the highest tariff of the companies participating in the spot market.
In 2010, about 3.9 million kWh of electricity or MNT 195.7 million was traded
in the spot market. The amount of traded electricity reduced by 20.6% from 2010,
which shows that generators imperfection had been reduced.
Thermal Power Plant #4 gained revenue of MNT 123.2 million from the spot
market trade in 2011. However, Thermal Power Plant #2, Thermal Power Plant #3,
Darkhan Thermal Power Plant, Erdenet Thermal Power Plant, had carried responsibility
of paying MNT 10 million, MNT 57.8 million, MNT 47.3 million, and MNT 8.1 million
respectively traded in 2011.
Electricity competitive (auction) market
The auction organized among the generators based on their offered generation
tariffs and their growth in electricity demand is defined as the competitive market.
According to the experiences of competitive markets in foreign countries,
usually the right to supply electricity is awarded to the generator based on the
lowest offered price.

Annual report 2011

19

ENERGY REGULATORY
COMMISSION

However, in the Mongolian case, the lowest generation tariff will not be ranked
in first place. Instead, the generators who offered to reduce their generation tariff
by a higher percentage will be ranked in first. This affords an opportunity for the
power plants with significantly different tariffs to have an equal right to participate
in the auction market. Besides, due to the specific features of the electricity market
of Mongolia, we organized the auction market only on the growth of electricity
demand.
The auction market commenced operation on 1 August 2007. According to the
Electricity Auction Market Temporary Rule approved by the ERC, the National
Dispatching Center LLC developed and approved an Auction organization rule for
the electricity competitive market. In total, 4.45 million kilowatt-hours of electricity
which is equal to MNT 281.7 million traded in 2011 in the auction market. Power
Plants participated in the auction market decreasing their energy tariff by 0.2%.

V. TARIFF AND PRICE REGULATION


In 2011, ERC resolved 73 requests raised by 48 companies regarding the
licensees tariff regulation, bonuses or penalties resulted by performance
agreements, which enabled additional MNT 70.9 billion sources for the sector
companies.

The results of operational performance of the Licensees in 2011


The quarterly and annually performance indices of the energy licensees
were regularly assessed by the ERC in 2011. In each of these assessments, the
revenue, profit, loss, account payables and receivables, and financial ratios etc
of the economical indices and power plants own-use rate, conditional fuel rate,
transmission and distributions losses etc. of the technical indices of the sector
were evaluated in detail. Quarterly assessments of each licensees balance sheet are
promoted in last several years which lead to benefits such as providing management
of licensees and consumers with various updated information. In first half of 2011,
the assessment was made for 44 Licensees.
2011 results shown that totally 4,450.3 million kWh of electricity was generated
by thermal power plants in Central, Western, Eastern, Southern and Altai-Uliastai
energy systems; 44.4 million kWh by hydro power plants; 12.8 million kWh by wind
& solar plants; 10.8 million kWh by diesel stations. Moreover, 268.7 million kWh of
electricity was imported from Russia and 21.5 million kWh of electricity was exported
to Russia. Meanwhile 3,424.9 million kWh of electricity and 6,567.3 thousand Gcal
of heat was distributed to end users.
Annual report 2011

20

Amount of electricity distributed to end users increased by 7.2% from the last
year, while heat distribution increased by 1.4% from last year respectively.

In 2011, the 19 largest energy licensees had a total operating revenue of MNT
329.6 billion and expenditures of MNT 368.8 billion; resulting in operational losses
of MNT 39.2 billion. Balance loss after tax payment reached up to MNT 2.2 billion. In
2011, 7 companies in central region and 6 companies in local region were subsidized
totally MNT 32.7 billion form the State budget.

ENERGY REGULATORY
COMMISSION

In 2011, energy licensees supplied totally 447.8 thousand consumers with


electricity, from which 7.0% or 33.5 thousands are enterprises and 93.0% or 414.3
thousand are residential consumers.
A total of 9,603 employees of 19 largest licensees worked in the sector in 2011
with an average monthly salary of MNT 670.0 thousand.
Approximately MNT 7,850.1 million spent on employees benefits in 2011 and
on average MNT 817.5 thousand per person was allocated annually.
In 2011, the ERA focused on the receivables and payables of the energy licensees
which are most challengeable issues of the Energy sector. Accordingly, we made
monthly analyses on the issues, informed our conclusions to the companies and
public through our website.
In 2011, receivables of 19 largest licensees from consumers and entities amounted
MNT 32.4 billion, payables to raw materials and spare parts suppliers was MNT 24.6
billion. The Licensees receivables increased by MNT 92.8 million and payables cut
down by MNT 4.6 billion from the beginning of the last year.
This positive results produced from the factors such as State budget subsidize
for central regions energy companies; postponed payments of long term loan; tariff
regulation and increased revenue regarding the consumption increase and initiative
efforts of executive director etc.

Internal auditing function


ERC established an auditing function in order to improve operational cost
management and monitor allocation of resources and efficiency of expenditures of
the energy companies. In the period of 2006 - 2010, auditing team performed 26
audits in 3 directions.
In 2011, auditing team worked in Nalaikh Heating Station SOJSC and revised
execution of recommendations of Performance auditing in 2008.

About end user tariff regulation


For the purpose to collect a financial source necessary for normal and
reliable operation of the Licensees through the tariff policy, the Energy Regulatory
Commission has been permanently revising the suggestions and account reports
submitted by the companies and occasionally reflecting the rationale expenditure
increase in their tariffs.

ENERGY REGULATORY
COMMISSION

The tariff-related proposals submitted by the energy license-holding companies


were revised, the issue concerned with the changes in the energy end users tariff
was discussed at the XI meeting of the Regulatory Board held on April 12, 2011, and
consequently the electricity and heat consumption tariffs for the end users of the
central and eastern regions were renewed and ratified.
The tariff increase regulations were made based on the nature-imposed
necessity to regulate the prices and tariffs of the electricity and heat supplied to
the consumers on the one hand, and the execution of all possible measures directed
towards reducing the load on the consumers by lowering the energy cost and
acquiring concrete Governmental support using the internal resources on the other
hand.
The orientations followed in the tariff increase process are:
For the purpose to commence the work to bring the electricity tariff closer
to the actual costs from the economic entities and enterprises engaged in
mining extraction and processing, the tariff of electricity consumption of
consumers of this category was increased by 20,2 MNT/kWh;
The electricity tariff supplied to other enterprises and organizations was
increased by 8,20 MNT/kWh;
The electricity tariff consumed by residential consumers was increased by
4-4,20 MNT/kWh;
The tariff for apartment heating and residential consumption hot water
was increased by 12%;
For the first turn, the tariff for the mining extraction and processing
industries was increased by 100 MNT/kWh by bringing it closer to the
actual costs;
The preferential tariffs for the night hours consumption werent changed;
The prices and tariffs for Electrical Transport JSC were not increased;
The tariffs for heating of industries and economic entities werent changed.

VI. THE ERAS ACTIVITY ON PROTECTION OF RIGHTS OF


CONSUMERS AND LICENSEES
Program on enhancement of public education in Energy sector
In 2010, the Energy Regulatory Commission developed and adopted the Energy
Tariff policy to be pursued in 2011-2014. We face a need to operate with the
concrete policy in the trend to introduce and publicize to the public the issues
concerned with the Energy sector activity, urgent problems required to be settled
as immediately as possible as well as the long-term Tariff policy. Beginning from
October 2010, we implemented a number of significant measures jointly with the
USAID, and the expected outcomes have been achieved.

Why we need program?


One of the main principles to be followed by the regulatory organization is
The Principle of Openness. The activities and procedures of the regulatory body
must be open and clear to the public to involve the interests of partner organizations
and individuals. In order to gain a confidence for the regulators it is necessary to
develop, publish in media and bring up for public discussion all type documentations
concerned with decision-making. The words and phrases of those documents must
be simple and explicit to the public. Furthermore, the data and information contained
therein must also be correct and clear.
Annual report 2011

28

This Program on enhancement public education in the energy sector has been
worked out within the framework of the Efforts for developing and implementing a
program on enhancement of public knowledge of energy sector activities, difficulties
and tariff perspective policy reflected the authority objectives approved by the

Order #01, 2011 of Chairman of the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC). The
purpose of the program is to make the public understand the necessity to transfer
the energy sector to the market relations, provide the consumers with correct and
clear information on the activities of the energy sector, educate them about the
benefit and proper consumption of energy, change the perception and tendency
of the main decision-makers, economic entities and enterprises, professional
associations and media persons through promoting a close cooperation with them,
create a positive public opinion by arising the social reputation of the ERA. The basic
theme of the program consists in the question How to use the energy properly and
reasonably? This issue has a double target to provide a support for transferring
the energy sector to the market relations. Also, there were comprised the items
concerned with the ways and methods for program implementing, works to be
done, collaboration groups, and funding.

ENERGY REGULATORY
COMMISSION

The program is developed with the joint efforts of Mr. Megan ONeil, the
project relations manager from the USAID/EPRCP and Mr. Amarsanaa, the media
expert.
Following works have been carried out within the framework of the program.
These are:
In total, 15 news, publications and interviews on the issue of tariff
alteration have been released by the Energy Regulatory Commission to the
daily newspapers and internet sites.

Four series of transmissions named on Energy value have been broadcasted


9 times through the Mongolian National Broadcaster and other TVs in addition
to 5 interviews given.
The brochures or handbooks designated for the consumers have been
developed, published and distributed.

On January 26, 2011, Mr. Ganbaatar Kh., /Executive Director of the Mongolian
Employers Federation/ Head of the Part-time Advisory Board under the jurisdiction
of the Regulatory Board of the ERC had a round-table meeting with the journalists
and discussed the issues concerned with the tariff policy. In total, 15 journalists and
reporters had a part in the meeting.
In total, 78 complaints submitted by the licensees and consumers on the
issue of protecting their interests have been revised and settled.
By the year 2011, 78 complaints /written-68 and website-10/ were submitted
from the licensees and consumers to the Energy Regulatory Commission on the
issue of protecting their interests as well as on the activities of licensees and those
complaints have been duly revised and settled.

Concerned with the electricity payments 21,8%

ENERGY REGULATORY
COMMISSION

Concerned with the heating payments 6,4%


Concerned with the heat supply 3,8%
Concerned with the electricity supply 11,5%
Others - 29,5%

So, the works intended to settle these complaints of the consumers were
revised in accordance with the relevant rules and regulations by carrying out the
works to conduct the on-site inspections jointly with the relevant licensees, organize
meetings with consumers and suppliers, sent official letters, state inspector demand
and notice, provide the licensees with the operational guidelines, and to keep a
control over the activity and problem-settlement of the relevant licensees.
During the process of settling the complaints submitted from the consumers,
it has been revealed that the complaints connected with the payment for heating
the hot water occupy a major percent, and in connection with this, we have made
a request for the licensees to issue the performance of the ERC Resolution #163,
2008, and thereafter the payment for heating the hot water has been renewed
upon the Resolution #95 from October 04, 2011 of the Regulatory Board of the ERC.

The majority of the complaints related to Ulaanbaatar Electricity Distribution


Network SOJSC are connected with the payments for electricity. These arguments
are caused at first, by the irresponsibility of energy supplying officials, and on
the other hand, by the insufficient knowledge of consumers about the Laws and
regulations on energy consumption.
For the reporting period, there have been conducted on-site inspections over
the activity of the Customer Service Centers of Ulaanbaatar Electricity Distribution
Network SOJSC including Chingeltei, Bayangol and Songinokhairkhan, and the
relevant official conclusions and operational recommendations were delivered to the
Ulaanbaatar Electricity Distribution Network SOJSC.
Organized a Theory and Practice Conference, titled on Energy Regulationin 10 years
The Energy Regulatory Authority /by the old name/ was established following
the Resolution #83 of the Government of Mongolia, issued on 16 April 2001 in
accordance with the Energy Law approved by the Parliament on 01 February, 2001.
On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of establishment of the ERC, the

For the purpose to make the activities of the Energy Regulatory Commission
open and clear to the broad public, we present through our website the general
introduction of the authority, its regulatory policy and principles, decisions and
resolutions adopted by the Regulatory Board, energy-related Laws and regulations,
and other relevant information and news to the consumers, Licensees and the public.
All the interested persons and organizations would be fully able to acquire
necessary and important information on the authority from the website which is
updated regularly. Website is: http://www.erc.mn
In 2011, we established a data fund on the Licensees technical, financial and
economic activities, and successfully started the implementation of the informationexchange micro-project Electronic information system. Within the framework
of the project, there were created the system development module sections like
the Payables, Receivables, Coal payment, Electricity power loss and the own use
electricity, the system development was completed and successfully tested in 100%.
In addition, there was issued a system exploitation handbook and on December
02, 2011, there was organized a training-workshop for the representatives of the
Licensees. The reports for the month of November have been successfully received
through on-line. Also, within the framework of the project, the internet network
