The current trend of decarbonisation leads to reliance of renewable energy in the electricity grid. Highly variable and intermittent generation poses a challenge due to current limited flexibility in load and coal based generation in India’s national transmission grid. Further, the Indian power sector is witnessing unprecedented cahanges in both T&D infrastructure and the way it is operated. Operators are facing the challenge of digitalizing age-old infrastructure to meet new regulations and address other areas such as allowing distributed energy resource integration and implementing cyber security protection measures.
A key prerequisite to Modernize the grid is to make it smarter and more resilient through the use of cutting-edge technologies, equipment and controls systems. Consumers can better manage their own energy consumption and costs because they have easier access to their own data. Utilities also benefit from a modernized grid, including improved security, reduced peak loads, increased integration of renewables, and lower operational costs.
The webinar on GRID Modernization will engage the grid operators, T&D Utilities, policy makers and Technology providers, to deliberate discussions to strengthen, transform, and improve energy grid infrastructure to ensure access to reliable, secure, and clean sources of energy.
