Energy use by multiple verticals monitored in one place
Energy efficiency has several dimensions, mainly loss reduction and consumption reduction. The previous high consumption of incandescent lamps has been successfully replaced with the use of low voltage LED lamps now.
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.

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.
Switchgears on upswing
The demand for electricity is ever increasing in India. urbanisation, infrastructure additions, growth in real estate, and of course the rural electrification project is spiralling the electricity demand.
We see conservative growth for capacitors in near future
The capacitors market has undergone major transformation in the last 3-4 years. While market for technologies like APP (all polypropylene) is shrinking, the market for MPP capacitors and allied products like reactors and thyristor switches is expanding.
