RECL opinions that Electricity consumption is one of the most important indices that decides the development level of a nation. It is the key ingredient for accelerated economic growth and is considered vital for nation’s overall development. Providing reliable and quality power supply in an efficient manner is an immediate requirement of the day. There is consistent growth in electricity demand due to increase in customer base, changes in lifestyle and consumption pattern which requires continual reinforcement and creation of new electricity infrastructure in Generation, Transmission and Distribution sectors to meet the consumer expectations. This program is joint initiative of Government of India with all States and Union Territories (UTs) to facilitate 24 x 7 power for all. If the Central government’s plan of providing 24X7 power to all households by 2022 is to fructify, the challenge of improving the country’s transmission and distribution network to accommodate the potential surge in electricity demand would need to be dealt with head-on. For, India’s power generation capacity of 330 GW is not an issue for now – the peak demand is 160-180 GW at present. It is this that has brought smart grid solutions to the centre of policy decisions of late. Experts say digitisation of the network is a must for a sustainable electricity chain in the 21st century. Simply put, a smart grid allows transmission and distribution assets like towers, switches, and transformers to be managed from anywhere within the network. Even the end-consumer gets connected with the larger grid through a smart meter — smart grids also ensure better understanding of domestic electricity consumption patterns. Thus, Diligentia with its proactive approach and with the support &guidance of ICF as their knowledge partner are coming up with the one-day Summit on Indian Power Sector scheduled for 5th October 2018 to address the major concerns and the nature of things that are likely to come up in the next few years. Conference on Indian Power Sector would showcase experts drawn from various professions to emphasize upon the key issues and developments and also review the projection for the growth of Power Industry in India. The conference provides a great opportunity for interaction & addressing to the views of the national and international professionals and discussions among major stakeholders. The conference will address to the Power companies- Gencos, Transcos and Discoms, Policy makers and administrators, State electricity boards, Captive /Merchant/ Independent Power Producers., Utility engineers, Prospective investors, End users and buyers, Equipment Manufacturers, Interstate Transmission Operators, Technology Providers, Banks and Financial Consultants, Legal and Consulting Firms, Central and state government agencies, Regulatory Bodies and Monitoring Agencies, Transmission Structure Manufactures, Consultancy organization, Educational Institutes/ NGOs.
