2 DOT NCIIPC ISGF Members (partial list): Govt, Utilities, Industry, Regulators, Academia, Research etc.

3 Overview of Indian Power Sector
Indian power system is today one of the largest synchronous grids in the world – 250 GW, >3 million SqKM, 200 million consumers Largely dominated by government owned utilities (central and states – 29 states and 7 union territories own majority of power utilities); private sector role is about 27% in generation, <1% in transmission and about 5% in distribution Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) and State Regulatory Commissions (SERCs) in most states – some small states have gone for Joint SERCs Transmission Grid in India is one of the largest in the world: 765kV/400kV lines: ~1,03,000 ckms; 220kV lines: ~132,000 ckms HVDC Bipole (±500kV): 7,500 ckms – 3 nos; HVDC Back-to-back: 7 nos (3000MW) Now building 1200 kV AC and 800kV HVDC networks Most modern control centers – 5 regional control centers , 1 national control center, back-up national control center Distribution Sector: Very high T&D losses – about 26.5% nationally (>40% in many states!) 400 million+ people have no access to power Large parts of the country experiences power cuts for several hours every day – customers keep storage (invertors)/ standby generation facilities Power quality being poor, consumers require voltage stabilizers, UPS, Inverters etc

4 Smart Grids – Challenges for India
High rate of growth in power sector is needed to support economic growth and employment generation Estimated demand by 2032 is 900 GW – almost quadrupling the existing capacity Present the per capita consumption is one-fourth of the world average! 79 Million households yet to be electrified (2011 census) To address the above challenges, the Indian power system is expected to grow 8-10% per annum for next several decades - managing a rapidly growing power system of this size requires smarter systems India is pursuing one of world’s largest grid connected renewable energy programs Integration of such renewable resources require smarter systems India launched the National Electric Mobility Mission with a target of 6 million EVs by 2020 Successful rollout of EVs with required smarter systems Reduction of T&D losses continues to be top priority of both Government and utilities Smart grid technologies will increase visibility and control of power flows in in real time Developed nations with reliable electric grids are investing in smart metering, data communications and advanced IT systems and analytics, tools for forecasting, scheduling and dispatching to further their smart grid journey…developing countries like India need to invest in both strengthening the electrical network as well as adding communications, IT and automation systems to build a strong and smart grid

5 Brief on R-APDRP The on-going Restructured – Accelerated Power Development and Reforms Program (R-APDRP) is one of the largest IT initiatives by electric utilities anywhere in the world - in one integrated project, all state owned Distribution Utilities in India are building IT Infrastructure, IT Applications and Automation Systems Scope under Part-A of R-APDRP (US$ 2 billion): Consumer Indexing using GIS Asset Mapping (entire distribution network – HT and LT lines, transformers, poles, meters) using GIS Automatic Meter Reading for all Distribution Transformers and Feeders IT applications for: meter reading, billing & collection, MIS, redressal of consumer grievances, establishment of IT enabled consumer service centers Energy Accounting & Auditing SCADA / DMS system (only in the project area having more than 400K population and annual input energy of the order of 350 Million Units (MU) Feeder Segregation/ Ring Fencing Under Part-B (US$ 10 billion) of the program utilities are undertaking electrical network strengthening and up-gradation.

6 India Smart Grid Forum & Task Force
India Smart Grid Forum (ISGF) is a public-private partnership initiative of the Ministry of Power (MoP), Government of India for accelerated development and deployment of smart grid technologies in the Indian power sector. Members include Govt agencies, utilities, technology and service providers, regulators, research & academia and other stake holders Govt. of India (Ministry of Power) is the Patron, and retains Chairmanship Registered as a Society under the Indian Societies Act as a not-for profit organization Enrolled members and conducted elections to choose the management team in Oct 2011 As of 31st March 2014 ISGF has 120 members (+ several student members) Prime objective is to accelerate development of Smart Grid technologies in the Indian Power Sector ISGF recommendations will be advisory in nature ISGF was launched along with India Smart Grid Task Force (ISGTF), an inter-ministerial government task force chaired by Mr. Sam Pitroda, Advisor to the Prime Minister of India ISGF Structure, Working Groups and Categories of Memberships, Fee etc can be found at:

7 Smart Grids – Drivers for India
Utilities: 1. Reduction of T&D losses in all utilities to 15% or below 2. Peak load management – Multiple options 3. Reduction in power purchase costs 4. Better asset management 5. Increased grid visibility 6. Self healing grid 7. Renewable integration Government & Regulators: 1. Satisfied customers 2. Financially sound utilities 3. Tariff neutral system upgrade and modernization 4. Reduction in emission intensity Customers: Expand access to electricity – “Power for All” Improve reliability of supply to all customers – No power cuts, no more DG sets and inverters! Improve quality of supply – No more voltage stabilizers! User friendly and transparent interface with utilities Ability to save money by reducing peak consumption Increased consumer engagement, also as a producer (“Prosumer”)

8 Smart Grid Vision and Roadmap
India Smart Grid Forum in consultation with India Smart Grid Task Force has formulated a comprehensive smart grid vision and roadmap for India which is aligned to Government’s overarching objectives of “Access, Availability and Affordability of Power for All” The Roadmap was approved by Ministry of Power in August 2013 and it was released by the Power Minister on 10th Sept 2013 in a conference of all state power ministers in Delhi Smart Grid Vision for India Transform the Indian power sector into a secure, adaptive, sustainable and digitally enabled ecosystem that provides reliable and quality energy for all with active participation of stakeholders A National Smart Grid Mission will be launched soon that will have the overall responsibility to bring all stakeholders for successful implementation of the policies and programs envisaged under this Roadmap.

14 Smart Grid Roadmap: Other Initiatives
1. Tariff mechanisms, new energy products, energy options and programs to encourage participation of customers in the energy markets that make them “prosumers” – producers and consumers – by 2017 2. Create an effective information exchange platform that can be shared by all market participants, including prosumers, in real time which will lead to the development of new and enhanced energy markets 3. Investment in research and development, training and capacity building programs for creation of adequate resource pools for developing and implementing smart grid technologies in India - can also become a global leader and exporter of smart grid know-how, products and services

15 Smart Grid Pilot Projects in India
14 Smart Grid Pilot projects have been approved for different distribution utilities last year by Ministry of Power (MoP), Govt of India (GoI). The list and project summary is available at: These projects will be part funded by MoP (50% project cost as grant from GoI). Combined cost of these projects are about US$ 80 million These projects will be in execution mode early 2015 – presently in RFP stage Most projects involve 20,000 or more customers These pilots are expected to help technology section guides and business case developments for larger projects in the next phase Many large utilities (in large states) could not apply for the first set of projects. So another set of larger and more integrated projects will be formulated soon Last mile connectivity is the major challenge in smart grid applications and these field trials to determine the most appropriate communication solutions
