BESCOM to appoint smart grid consultants by April

BESCOM, which got a US grant worth $453,350 (Rs 2.04 crore) for smart grid development in Bangalore, said that it is finalising the appointment of US consultants and hopes to do it by April. The US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) had floated a request for proposal (RFP) inviting bids to appoint US consultants for the smart grid pilot project in Bangalore. Once the bids were submitted, a sub-committee was constituted to evaluate the bids. The report on evaluation of bids will be submitted to USTDA soon. On receipt of clearance from USTDA, BESCOM will sign the contract with the successful bidder.

While ordinary electricity grids use analogue technology, smart grids use digital technology, which enables electricity supply companies (ESCOMs) to save energy and reduce costs. Using a smart grid, ESCOMs could one day offer customers cheaper electricity at different times of the day. This could encourage households to use energy-consuming devices at off-peak hours, thereby improving the load balancing abilities of BESCOM across the city.
