Waning hope for UDAY!
Although state discoms have managed to leverage UDAY by paring financial losses from Rs.51,589.51 crore in FY16 to Rs.34,826.87 in FY17, a marginal decrease in AT&C losses seems to be the bone of contention, as what has been envisaged has not been achieved yet, barring bailing-out non-performers.
Metering India 2017 Seminar
Indian power distribution utilities are incurring heavy losses and it has become imperative to deploy a right mix of people, process and technology in order to make them sustainable.
Fast tracking projects will trigger growth
Initiatives are an excellent platform for pushing the envelope for the use of advanced digital technology and communication in power distribution. The current dilemma faced by manufacturers and utilities is the lack of a unified definition and specification.
Changing faces with technology
Capacitors and meters are two important and intelligent parts of a power supply system. While the former regulates/stabilises the output supply, the latter measures consumption. Both these equipments have wider applications in power supply.
Smart Metering is still at the nascent stage in India, where it is being tested and implemented by only a few utilities equipped with the money and technology to do so. However, it provides a sea of possibilities in streamlining and advancing our home energy infrastructure.
Aggregate Technical And Commercial losses are considered to be an Achilles heel of Indias power sector. Problems in power distribution companies have accentuated over the years, mainly in the form of inadequate metering and data collection systems in place.
1.10 lakh smart meters sanctioned under IPDS till March 16
About 1.10 lakhs smart meters have been sanctioned under Integrated Power Development Scheme (IPDS) till March 2016, as stated by Shri Piyush Goyal, Minister of State (IC) for Power, Coal And New and Renewable Energy in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha.
Smart grids help curb demand-supply gap
Environment-friendly, efficient and extremely flexible - smart grids are poised to be the future of energy supply in India. Instead of purchasing power from a handful of centralised suppliers, consumers can also feed electricity into the public grid - e.g.,
