We are honoured to represent a unified voice to influence the Discom community, and leverage each other’s experiences for successful nationwide smart grid roll out. Convergence of both Electrical and Information Technology coupled with Communication Technology is changing the landscape of power sector today. Technology advancement has transformed the Indian power sector so much so that individuals can now produce power locally than have large power stations to supply power to cities & villages.
