First Year Progress Report

India Smart Grid ForumDecember 2012

isgf introduction

ISGF - Introduction

India Smart Grid Forum (ISGF), registered under Indian Societies Registration Act (Act XXI of 1860) is a Public Private Partnership (PPP) initiative of Ministry of Power, Government of India for accelerated development of smart grid technologies in the Indian power sector.

The main objectives of ​ISGF are:

• To help Indian power sector to deploy smart grid technologies in an efficient, cost effective, innovative and scalable manner by bringing together all key stakeholders and enabling technologies• To create a platform for public and private stakeholder members, research institutions and power utilities to drive down myths on smart grids, and create innovation through information exchanges

To bring together stakeholders specializing in regulation, policy, and business case with a view to building up a broad-based support for smart grid policies.

To undertake research work and other efforts such as scoping the capabilities of smart grids in the Indian context through case studies, cost-benefit framework, technical advancements in the renewable energy sources and other ancillary activities

To provide advice to Government, Regulators, Utilities and Consumers in the form of reports and white papers, technical seminars, etc.

ISGF was constituted in 2010, and is functional since November 2011; and has more than 100 members covering Government, Utilities, Regulators, Industry, Academia and Research.

B) Functional

  • 10 Working Groups (WG) constituted and are functional – detailed progress of each WGs included in later section of this report
  • Alignment of ISGF WGs with ISGTF WGs has been finalized
  • ISGF submitted suggestions on Smart Grid Pilots (including detailed comments/suggestions on technical specifications and use-cases) to MoP in Jan 2012
  • ISGF members studied the Smart Meter Specs in depth and member’s comments/

suggestions were discussed, compiled and submitted to MoP/CEA in April 2012

  • Held workshop to define a Smart Grid Vision and Roadmap for India; and submitted to

MoP in July 2012. Consultations with stakeholders at state levels in progress

  • Study Report on R-APDRP submitted to MoP which covered comprehensive review of

the program in terms of scope, implementation strategy, specifications and readiness

of stake holders; and made recommendations for improvisation of the program for

12th Plan
