What differentiates our conferences?

  • The agenda is developed by our researchers, who track the sector round the year. It is thus relevant and topical. It is not driven by a particular organisation and does not have a particular slant.
  • The speakers are professionals and experts involved in the sector, not a mix of ambassadors, ministers, celebrities and business owners.
  • The conferences do not just comprise panels and speeches; they provide a good mix of expert presentations and case histories, and of course panel discussions.
  • We have representation from across the country, as is the case at our physical conferences too.
  • Each stakeholder group – policymakers, developers, financiers, consultants and relevant NGOs – is represented at our conferences.
  • The moderators merely ask the questions. The stars are the speakers themselves.
  • The sessions begin and end on time.
  • There is adequate time for a Q&A session with each speaker. These are not “hit and run” speeches.
  • The delegates are professionals who are vested in the sector, and are not just assembled through social media.
  • The participants in each conference receive a concise report outlining the key facts, trends and issues in the sector.
  • A recap of the conference is also made available to reinforce the key takeaways.

  • The transmission sector in India has seen considerable growth in the past few years owing to increasing power demand and generation capacity. Besides the transfer of power from generating stations to load centres, the creation of a synchronous national grid – One Nation-One Grid-One Frequency – has also facilitated the smooth functioning of power markets in the country. Further, regulatory reserves ancillary services have helped in congestion management and grid optimisation at the regional and pan-India levels.
  • In the coming years, the growth of the transmission sector will be mainly driven by the need to evacuate large-scale renewable energy. With a target to set up 175 GW of renewables by 2022 and 450 GW by 2030, the transmission system will require significant expansion and strengthening.
  • The focus is also on the creation of a regional power grid to utilise resources in the South Asian region in an optimal manner and help stabilise the Indian grid in the wake of increasing renewables. To realise the vision of a unified regional grid, there is a need to build new transmission networks and strengthen existing ones.
  • Further, Indian Railways, as part of its long-term vision to improve power reliability, plans to have a dedicated transmission line network that will provide reliable power at a reasonable cost. By 2023, it plans to electrify about 27,000 route km for achieving its 100 per cent electrification target.
  • The introduction of competition in transmission at the interstate level has significantly reduced tariffs and project completion time, and improved efficiencies. At the intra-state level too, the state utilities of Jharkhand, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh have started awarding transmission projects through competitive bidding.
  • With renewable energy playing a bigger role in the country’s generation mix, maintaining grid resiliency and security will become paramount, and utilities will be required to adopt solutions for generation forecasting and grid balancing. Apart from expanding the physical grid, Indian utilities are expected to invest in new technologies to make grids more reliable, resilient, secure and smart. Besides, the emerging trends in smart cities, digitalisation, energy storage and telecom are expected to provide new business opportunities to players in the transmission sector.
  • While there are numerous opportunities for growth in the transmission sector, the challenges are aplenty too. From a grid planning perspective, these challenges pertain to the short gestation period of renewable energy plants and reactive power management; operational constraints owing to the variability of renewables; right-of-way issues; and cybersecurity of networks. Advanced grid solutions such as STATCOMs, FACTS, HVDC, HTLS conductors and real-time data monitoring tools to overcome these challenges.
  • The recent outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has impacted grid operations and preventive measures are being taken to tackle the pandemic’s impact on the utilities’ day-to-day activities, ongoing transmission projects and future development plans.
  • The mission of this conference is to discuss the recent trends and developments, and highlight the future plans and upcoming opportunities in the Indian power transmission sector. The conference will highlight some of the new and emerging challenges in the sector, and the possible solutions and strategies. It will discuss best practices in asset investment planning and solutions to help utilities better manage their transmission assets. The conference will also showcase the relevant technologies and noteworthy projects.
