04 Dec 2017 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Since, 2014 the Indian power industry has been into limelight, courtesy the incentives taken by the government. After, quite a great number of schemes, policies and reforms put in place in the industry during the past 3 years, the government still doesn’t appear to be contented as building upon the same goes on. After the Ujjwal Discom Assurance Yojana (UDAY), the new scheme, Saubhagya, is another more debated addition into the list. But, as distinct from UDAY which was basically aimed at the distribution aspect of the power sector, Saubhagya Scheme is deemed to affect the whole value chain catering to all the 3 legs – generation, distribution and transmission; by end-2018 the scheme aims to make sure that every household have access to electricity.

Since the government has plans to invest USD 2.15 billion till December 2018 in the electrification of close to 4 crores of rural households, exciting business case is anticipated to hold up into energy upgrades, rural electrification, renewable power source integration, and smart metering. Indeed, more automation and advanced analytics based solutions to control high levels of electricity T&D losses is the path forward for the Indian power sector. These and associated opportunities are likely to require annual investment of nearly USD 10 billion by 2020.
