T&D sits with Rs.30,000-crore refinancing opportunity
From the projects handled, we have developed a core team of project managers and sub-contractors who understand every facet of the activity from design, construction to commissioning and have established a methodology for speedy construction from which we are progressing in transmission work along with established distribution work.

Sprinting on a Growth Track
The World Bank recently has put out a report in which the demand for electricity in India is growing at the same rate as in France or Germany as millions of people in rural or impoverished areas seek access to power in their homes and workplaces.

On the Right Track
Globally, 20 per cent of the total generated energy is used for lighting purposes alone. Experts are of the opinion that the said number has to be revoked considering the challenges arising from climate change issues.

Growing trend is switching from long term PPAs to short term contracts
We have already seen an increase in appetite for short term power from the utilities following the financial leeway brought about by the debt restructuring. Over the long term, sustained improvement in distribution operations as envisaged under UDAY, could bring significant improvement.
