India Smart Grid Summit

12 February 2014


India’s Energy Sector is evolving significantly

Smart Grids can transform the existing grid into a more efficient, reliable, safe and enable address sector challenges. Evolution has already started.

several application areas have emerged
Several Application areas have emerged


Key Application Areas

  • Electricity Distribution
  • Electricity Markets
  • Environmental Markets
  • Renewable Energy
  • Energy Storage
  • Transport
  • Industrial Energy Efficiency
  • Building Energy Efficiency

Smart Grid Roadmap provides several targets to be met

In 2013, Government of India (GoI) has adopted a National Smart Grid Vision for India with following objective:

"Transform the Indian power sector into a secure, adaptive, sustainable and digitally enabled ecosystem that provides reliable and quality energy for all with active participation of stakeholders”

Key Targets and Highlights are as follows:

12th Plan

13th Plan

14th Plan

  • Completion of ongoing smart grid pilots
  • Augmentation of data centres and communication network for AMI Roll out
  • Distribution Automation & GIS/Automated distribution s/stns.
  • Development of indigenous smart meter
  • Dynamic tariffs, Sustainability Initiatives –promoting distributed generation
  • Nationwide AMI roll out for customers >10KW load
  • Mandatory Roof Top Solar for large establishments
  • Total Renewable integration of 80GW;
  • EV charging infrastructure
  • Development of micro grids in total 10000 villages
  • Distribution Automation
  • Development of 50 Smart cities.
  • Mandatory roof top solar
  • Total Renewable integration of 130 GW; 10% EV penetration
  • Nationwide AMI roll out for customers
  • Continuous Research &Development ;
  • Choice of electricity supplier
  • Stable 24X7 power supply

Existing initiatives and activities will need to be scaled up

India Smart Grid Task Force (ISGTF)

India Smart Grid Forum (ISGF)

14 Pilot Projects

Created under the Ministry of Power (MoP) to provide policy direction to the Smart Grid initiatives in the country

PPP initiative of MoP to support ISGTF, responsible for helping the stakeholders in the deployment of smart grid technologies and undertaking research work for promotion of such technologies

14 smart grids pilots have been proposed to be implemented across various stages through support from the GoI.

There are utilities like BESCOM, Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited, CESC etc. who have started their own initiatives

There are also several additional initiatives that various entities have been undertaking working in their domain for smart grid support and implementation in India- CEA, BIS, CPRI, BEE etc.

National Smart Grid Mission aims to further strengthen the above initiatives


A conducive regulatory framework will also be critical

  • Smart Grids cannot evolve without dynamic, flexible regulation
  • The regulator will be a facilitator to smart grids business
  • Discoms need to demonstrate clear positive benefits to consumers
  • Regulators more than ever need to protect the interests of the consumers

Approval of Smart Grids investments consistent with the objectives

Tariff design for enabling consumers, prosumers and utilities to derive benefits of the SG investments

Incentive/dis-incentive design for promoting deployment

Security of network operations, particularly with respect of cyber security

Integration of Renewable/Distributed Generation for better grid visibility and efficiency

Adoption of relevant equipment, communication and interoperability standards and codes







Scope of Smart Grid Regulations

Protection of consumer privacy, maintaining integrity of data


Entities may be required to demonstrate adherence to the requirements stipulated herein through appropriate reporting structures (preferred through automated means with minimum human intervention)


Initiative on this has already started

  • Mr. B N Sharma, Joint Secretary (Distribution), MoP (Chairman)
  • Mr. Pravinbhai Patel, Member (Technical), GERC
  • Mr. Alok Gupta, Member, MPERC
  • Mr. Pankaj Batra, Chief Engineer, I/C, CEA
  • Mr. S A Soman, Professor, IIT-Mumbai
  • Mr. N. S. Sodha, Executive Director, PGCIL Ltd. (Convenor)

Draft regulations validated by the Committee has been presented to the Forum of Regulators

A facilitative regulatory framework for promoting smart grid investments and applications is being laid out in India.

Through the Ministry of Power and the Forum of Regulators in India, model smart grid regulations are under development.

A Technical Committee constituted by MoP for development of SG Regulations has been formed

Functionalities of SG Utility pilots aim to address several issues plaguing the distribution segment

National Priorities

Smart Grid Interventions proposed under the 14 GOI Pilots


Smart Grid Regulations Coverage

Safety and Standards

Smart Grid Cell and Nodal Officer

Tariff Design

Customer Engagement


  • Implement specific Tariff Structure to promote deployment
  • Process of tariff setting
  • Product Standards
  • System Standards
  • Performance Standards
  • Network and Communication Standards
  • Customer Data Protection Standards
  • Awareness and Capacity Building
  • Customer Participation and Incentives
  • Consumer or Prosumer Dispute Redressal Process
  • Review and Approval of Smart Grid Investments
  • Recovery of Costs
  • Role of Smart Grid Consultation Committee (SG-CC)
  • Evaluation, Measurement & Verification
  • Constitution of Smart Grid Cell
  • Appointment of Nodal Officer

While the regulations provides details of various themes, in certain cases it interfaces with the developments/standards and process already laid out in various documents


Objective of Smart Grid Regulations

Takes into consonance the National & State Roadmaps, and aims to propagate investments in SG and allied technologies in accordance with these roadmaps

Considering early stages of development, provides flexibility to experiment with new technologies and applications while duly protecting the legitimate interests of consumers and prosumers

By greater technology adoption across the value chain in electricity sector (especially in T&D)


  • Efficiency in generation and licensee operations
  • Manage T&D network effectively
  • Enhance network security
  • Integrate renewable and clean energy into the grid
  • Enhance network visibility and access
  • Improve customer / prosumer service level
