One day National level Workshop On “Smart Grid/Smart City An Indian Perspective” in Tamil Nadu 2017

Event Description


The days are coming nearer where Customer Service, IT, Human Resources, Engineering, Operations and Construction could operate unison. Smart Grid implementation is a key reason for this change. While specialized knowledge will be necessary in each of these disciplines, knowledge of the big picture and the ability to work in ways that cut across the organization will be an absolute requirement in the future.

India is presently spearheading some of the largest transformation projects with technology interventions for building smart cities, renewable energy and power grid modernization. Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has committed to provide 24x7 reliable supply of electricity to all the citizens in the next 5 years. In order to achieve this noble objective several targeted programs have already been launched by Government of India. The Government of India is planning to roll out 250 million Smart Meters in next 5-7 years. Besides the policy side several measures have been taken to implement the programs successfully. These include an Amendment to the Electricity Act 2003 that will usher in an era of retail competition in electricity distribution; Model Smart Grid Regulations approved by the statutory body of Forum of Regulators; Indian Standards for Smart Meters (IS 16444 – 2015 & IS 15959 Part 2, 2016) issued by Bureau of Indian Standards; and Net Metering Policies in 25 States.

The Main Objective of this Workshop covers aspects of the Smart Grid that touch all departments in the utility. It is suitable for participants from any of these disciplines. In order to create awareness about the smart grid/smart cities, this workshop pave way to enhance the knowledge of faculty, Students, Industry Professionals and Research Community in reaching their objective. This course will helps to visualize about smart grid along with practical information and lessons learnt to succeed on the next generation energy supply system.
