Across the smart grid vendor landscape, one country in particular seems to be at the top of everyone’s minds: India. Mirroring much of the developed world, India is in the middle of fundamentally transforming its electric power system to adopt a smart grid framework. Plagued by inefficiencies across the network and faced with new and emerging pressures, utilities and government regulators are shifting focus to aggressive electrification, decentralization, and digitization efforts that aim to bring the country’s grid into the 21stcentury.
When examining the Indian smart grid landscape, a clear understanding of the different grid operators and market players is necessary. The Indian intra-state transmission network is owned and operated by state-specific grid operators, while the inter-state network is under the management of the Power Grid Corporation of India, a state-owned central utilities company.
