Smart Utilities for Electrified India

Government of India recently announced the completion of 100 percent village electrification. This massive accomplishment of bringing electricity to 5,97,464 villages along with introduction of Saubhagya Scheme to provide free electricity connections to about 40 million homes and smart grid projects in urban areas, government of India is making all efforts to provide 24 X 7 reliable power supply for all citizens. However, to achieve this target, adequate measures need to be taken in terms of AT&C loss reduction, smart metering, efficient transmission planning, business transformation of utilities to adopt technology transition etc.

India Smart Grid Forum (ISGF) has been conducting India Smart Grid Week (ISGW) since 2015, which is today considered to be one of the top five events on Smart Grids and Smart Cities in the world.

With launching of 100 Smart City projects by the Government of India, water and city gas distribution utilities will also need to equip themselves with latest technologies for improved operational efficiency and successful integration into the smart city systems. However, lack of effective policy and regulations both at the central and state level along with inadequate safety guidelines, standards, business models act as barriers for its growth. In order to address all the challenges and to discuss future technologies and opportunities, ISGF will be organising India Smart Utility Week (ISUW) 2019.
