India Smart Grid Week

Monday, March 2nd - Friday, March 6th

Bengaluru, India

Today, India operates the world’s largest synchronous grid covering an area of 3.28 million sq km with connected capacity of 245 GW and about 200 million consumers. Yet, another 79 million households in India do not have access to electricity and our per capita consumption is one-fourth of world average! Transmission and Distribution losses in India are also quite high about 26% in distribution and more than 7% in transmission! Government of India (GoI) is determined to leverage Smart Grid Technologies to address these problems. In 2013, GoI issued Smart Grid Vision and Roadmap for India which is a 15 year roadmap for transformation of Indian power system to Smart Grids. With the recent activities around 14 Smart Grid Pilot projects in different states, India has emerged as the hot destination for Smart Grids.

ISGF is organizing India Smart Grid Week (ISGW 2015) from 02 – 06 March, 2015 at Bangalore.
