Previous Sponsors:

  • Over the years, several technology solutions have been deployed to improve the business processes and operations of utilities including mobile apps, automated SCADA, DMS, remote monitoring, ERP, sensor technologies,among others.
  • However, the Indian power sector is changing much faster than expected. Decentralised generation, prosumerism, a rapid influx of renewables, proliferation of intelligent devices, launch of EVs are driving utilities to look at new ways to engage with its customers. Traditional T&D networks are evolving towards smarter grids, while greater choice in energy supply and use is expected to create new marketplaces.
  • To address the new challenges and opportunities, utilities have begun to consider digital solutions that can help deliver better services,as well as improve productivity, fleet management to load optimisation.
  • At the core of the industry’ s technology transformation are smart metering systems. Two-way data communication systems established through smart meterscan be leveraged for providing data on load forecasts, optimising consumption, as well as improving customer engagement, among other things
  • Internet of things (IoT) and big data are other major technology trends set to impact the sector. As costs for IoT declines, utilities are keen to look at such solutions for asset life cycle management to reduce O&M costs. IoT also connects devices and consumers to smart meters and subsequently to the grid which helps monitor consumption patterns. Also as the volume of data grows from smart meters and sensors, big data is expected to play a key role to help businesses extract value from it.
  • Cloud is another technology which is being embraced for flexibility, lower sunk investments and big data analytics.Future new digital tools like blockchain, AI and ML are also being explored as utilities look to transition to the digital paradigm.
  • To support utilities to actively invest in smart grid technologies, the policy landscape has kept up pace. From the Integrated Power Development Scheme (which subsumed the earlier R-APDRP) which targeted urban power system strengthening, the UDAY and Saubhagya schemes, which lays significant emphasis on mandatory smart metering, the National Smart Grid Mission to the more recently launched smart metering national programme, these policy initiatives have created a number of opportunities for utilities, equipment manufacturers technology solution providers for adopting and implementing new solutions
  • However, digital technologies are also posing a new challenge to security and data privacy for utilities. To effectively meet the cyber security imperative, utilities need to work on not just compliance with security standards but developing security as a core business capability.
  • The mission of this two-day conference is to highlight the most promising IT-OT solutions, examine their potential and relevance in the Indian power sector, and discuss the key issues and challenges in their deployment and convergence. The conference will also showcase noteworthy applications, innovative projects and best practices across all segments – generation, transmission and distribution. It will provide an excellent forum for all stakeholders – power utilities, technology providers, system integrators and equipment manufacturers – to share their experience so far and exchange views.
