Growth in load and distributed generation brings new challenges for distribution network. To overcome the challenges Utilities are also deploying state of the art technologies to improve quality and reliability of supply and also reduce losses. These challenges can be overcome only with the amalgamation of electrical equipment and digital network technology. It is in this backdrop that DistribuELEC 2019 is planned as a uniquely designed concept to bring Utility, Consumer, Electrical Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT) on same platform to empower all stakeholders.
Commenting on the same, Harish Agarwal President IEEMA, said, “Renewables are outpacing fossil fuel based plants so far addition in generating capacity is concerned. There is increasing need for a digitised, automated and controllable power system for optimising power flows and reduce losses. Legacy systems need to adapt as distributed generation, energy storage and information infrastructure are becoming vital components of power system. EV will open a whole new area of opportunities and a new set of challenges. Breakthrough technologies and innovative business models can bring to real world what would probably be the domain of sci-fi.”
“DistribuELEC 2019 and BuildELEC2019 will provide the energy and construction industry an unrivalled environment to meet suppliers, all in one place. Participants will have the chance to meet with exhibitors and explore new developments. In addition, leading industry experts will share their knowledge experience in energy sector during 2 days interactive conference.” added Sunil Singhvi, Chairman, distribuELEC 2019.
