The event will bring together a confluence of experts in the field of electricity, IT communications and smart cities to discuss the challenges and opportunities and build support towards establishing smart grids in India.
For cyber enthusiasts who are not too interested in policy but in technological solutions to strengthening the power systems in India, the week-long congregation offers a unique opportunity to participate in some never seen before contests and showcase your innovative capabilities in developing softwares, hardwares, apps or hacking into power grid systems.
“The India Smart Grid Week is a brainstorming forum aimed at encouraging fruitful discussions and solutions to India’s energy problems and how smart grids can help improve supply, reduce leakages and better delivery of quality power. Smart Grid technologies can play an essential role in ensuring power quality and reliable electricity supply. At India Smart Grid Forum, we believe in involving not just policymakers and corporate leaders in the discussions regarding smart grid technologies but also common Indians and innovation enthusiasts. The idea is to take the Smart Grid discussion to the common citizens. The innovative contests aim to involve students, researchers and other smart technology enthusiasts into the larger discussion,” says Mr Reji Kumar Pillai ,President India Smart Grid Forum.
