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.

  • India’s power transmission sector has seen considerable growth in the past few years owing to the increasing power demand and capacity addition, especially in the renewables segment. The sector has remained largely unaffected and resilient even during Covid-19. The past growth momentum is expected continue in the future as well, with the sector expecting over Rs 3 trillion worth of investment over the next five years.
  • Grid expansion is being driven by the need to evacuate power from the upcoming renewable energy projects with ambitious targets of 450 GW by 2030. Key projects like Green Energy Corridors and Transmission System for Renewable Energy Zones are underway to facilitate the integration of renewable energy into the grid. The large-scale renewable energy integration will also require the adoption of solutions for generation forecasting, grid balancing and reactive compensation.
  • Private participation at the interstate transmission level continues to grow. Recent years have seen stiff competition, with new players participating in the bid process. At the intra-state level, state utilities are gradually coming forward to award transmission projects through competitive bidding.
  • InvITs are emerging as an attractive avenue for monetising seasoned transmission assets to finance new transmission infrastructure. Sterlite Grid has already launched an InviT, namely IndiGrid, and Powergrid expects to follow suit soon, becoming the first state-owned company to do so.
  • Work on creating a unified regional grid continues at a steady pace, and new interconnections are underway with Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh. A regional grid will help utilise resources in the South Asian region in an optimal manner and stabilise the Indian grid in the wake of increasing renewables. The government’s recently announced “One Sun One World One Grid” initiative for connecting solar energy supply across borders is a leap from a regional grid system towards an inter-continental grid.
  • Although the sector offers numerous opportunities to all stakeholders, it also poses several challenges. Project developers face delays in project completion due to challenges in RoW, land acquisition, statutory approvals, and contractual disputes. From a grid planning perspective, there are challenges due to the short gestation period of renewable energy plants, and operational constraints owing to the variability of renewables and cybersecurity of networks. Advanced grid solutions such as STATCOMs, FACTS, HVDC, HTLS conductors and real-time data monitoring tools will help overcome these challenges.
  • The future Indian power grid will be required to be more flexible, smart and resilient with growing decarbonisation and digitalisation across sectors. In addition to building new infrastructure, the utilities will focus on modernising and strengthening their grid networks. Significant demand is expected to come up for retrofitting, uprating and upgrading networks, which includes replacing conductors to better utilise the existing RoW. Going forward, Indian utilities are also expected to invest in new technologies to make the grid more reliable, resilient, secure and smart.
  • The mission of this conference is to discuss the future plans of leading utilities and investment opportunities in the Indian power transmission sector. The conference will highlight the recent trends and emerging challenges in the sector, and the possible solutions and strategies. It will also showcase the latest technologies and innovative solutions that can help utilities create efficient, reliable and modern grids, and better manage their transmission assets. The conference will also showcase the relevant technologies and noteworthy projects.
