Good Progress, but More Needed
India has taken a big leap in energy efficiency, with significant improvement in both supply-side and demand-side management in the past five years; the challenge now is to increase storage capacity and reduce T&D losses, says Renjini Liza Varghese.

Commodity price inflation to impact cost of low-voltage electrical equipment
A recovery in Asian demand and supply constraints in the global market has sparked an increase in price of commodities like copper, pushing manufacturers to increase cost of low-voltage electrical equipment. Electrical equipment such as circuit breakers, switching and control and metering products are used extensively in industrial, commercial and residential segments, with a significant chunk used in the power sector.

Largest change is dramatic evolution of Internet of Things
For the sake of clarity, I will restrict myself to the low voltage space. The single largest change we has been the evolution of ´Internet of Things´ or ´Industry 4.0´. The impact of this on users is immense, as the ability to communicate opens up a whole spectrum of possibilities for more intelligent use of power and more efficient processes.
