Power is one of the most critical components of infrastructure, affecting economic growth and wellbeing of nations. The existence and development of adequate power infrastructure is essential for sustained growth of the Indian economy. India currently has an installed capacity of about 248.510 GW and is the world's third largest producer of electricity with 4.8% global share in electricity generation. In contrast, over one third of India's rural population and 6% of the urban population have no access to electricity. Of those who have access to electricity, the supply is often intermittent and unreliable. A favourable policy environment, tackling fuel shortages, augmentation of generation capacities, improvements in transmission and distribution, reducing AT & C losses, customer driven cost effective technology interventions are some of the priorities for the sector. Renewables have the potential of making the country’s energy basket more competitive and sustainable, so viable business models for mainstreaming them are the need of the hour.
Against this backdrop, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Eastern Region is organizing the Eighth edition of Energy Conclave, the annual flagship initiative of CII on 17 August 2017 at The Oberoi Grand, Kolkata. Energy Conclave is committed towards creating an enabling ecosystem for the power sector and this year the theme of the conference is “Conserving Energy: Enabling Sustainability with Efficiency”.
