We have an order book of 4-mn smart meters
Yes of course! Energy Efficiency Services (EESL)'s procurement of smart meters have already started pushing down the cost. In November-December, last year, EESL has come out with a large tender, and I remember, an announcement of 14 per cent lower pricing than the earlier tenders.
Three years and three cheers!
Three years is not a long time to judge a government's performance, but it is long enough to set a trend in power sector reforms in the country. Narendra Modi's government at the Centre, which completed three-year tenure in the last week of May 2017, has some achievements to boast of in the sector that touches everybody's life.
India Progressing Towards Optimum Energy Mix
The summer of 2017 promises to be a watershed year for India. While the government burns the midnight oil to introduce GST by start of the upcoming financial year, Piyush Goyal, Minister of State (I/C) Power, Coal, New and Renewable Energy and Mines, is confident that all villages will be connected to the grid by May 2017.
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.
SEBs are to be blamed for low PLF
Yes. The Modi Government deserves to be complimented for above achievements since we have been a power deficit nation for decades. Our per capita power consumption is one third that of China and the world´s average.
