Gearing up for power challenges

Power-Gen India and Central Asia 2011, one of the leading international exhibitions and conferences on the power industry was held at Pragati Maidan in Delhi.

The event was inaugurated by Minister of Power Sushil Kumar Shinde who was accompanied by BK Chaturvedi, Member Energy, Planning Commission, Dan Belenkiy, Deputy Minister of Energy, Russia, P Umashankar, Secretary, Ministry of Power, Deepak Gupta, Secretary, Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, C Balakrishnan, Secretary, Ministry of Coal, BP Rao, CMD, BHEL, Arup Roy Choudhury, CMD, NTPC and Philippe Joubert, President, Alstom Power.

The event was co-located with Renewable Energy World India and HydroVision India, which addressed India's renewable energy and hydro power challenges.

India currently ranks as the world's 11th largest energy producer, accounting for about 2.4 per cent of the world's total annual energy production and as the world's sixth largest energy consumer accounting for about 3.3 per cent of the world's total annual energy consumption.  
But despite its large annual energy production, India needs new technologies and systems. So the three-day conferences highlighted the problems, policies and strategies which are being formulated to overcome those problems to attain a sustainable power future.

More than 150 industry experts from 13 countries attended the conference.

The conference tried to look at gaps in the power challenges (technical and logistical issues) faced by our government in its ambitious 12th Year plan to modernise the power infrastructure.

The ninth edition of the event brought together technocrats, industry leaders, and senior government officials from central and state government as well as eminent experts from overseas, with wide experience in the field of generation of power and its related sectors.  
The conference served as a platform to showcase new technologies and developmental plans for the power industry and created a new step to bridge the gap between the demand and supply in the power sector.
