India, the largest democratic state, has the fifth largest electricity grid and third largest Transmission & Distribution network respectively in the world. However, due to the dramatically increasing economic activities and rising electricity consumption, there has been a significant challenge to face for Indian government. Origins of India’s smart grid efforts are multi-factorial in nature but primarily concern three main issues which are the subject of current or planned government backed initiatives: 1) Balance the supply and demand of the power market; 2) Electrify a large segment of its rural population to receive electrical services; 3) Optimize electrical usage by being able to manage loads and mitigate operating inefficiencies. Furthermore, central government involvement in the smart grid has expanded beyond the confines of Ministry of Power into an inter-department task force known as India Smart Grid Task Force.
“Under my stewardship, we wish to evolve a future roadmap for development of Smart Grid in India aided by the most modern and latest technologies in the field.” said by Shri Sam Pitroda, the Chairman of India Smart Grid Task Force who is confirmed to be the opening keynote speaker of World Smart Gird Conference Series India Week. He is planning to present the role of India Smart Grid Task Force, national smart grid initiatives, and India’s smart grid roadmap and strategy in the environment of emerging economic.
Meantime, Dr. Pramod Deo, Chairman of Central Electricity Regulatory Commission which takes responsible of tariff, legal and regulatory issues, will present the regulatory challenges and opportunities for India Smart Grid.
Not only two senior speakers above, but also some main local utilities, such as Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (BESCOM), Reliance Infrastructure, NDPL, APCPDCL, and BSES have also be arranged to speak in this event for their own perspectives towards smart grid.
World Smart Grid Conference Series-India Week 2011, to be held on September 13th to 16th in Mumbai, is a unique event for you to attain deep understandings on India’s smart grid initiatives, roadmap, regulatory environment, ongoing pilots of local utilities, network local and international smart grid industry executives and share insights on the future market developments.
The conference is vendor-neutral, product-neutral, and platform-neutral with highly intense interaction between delegates, and allows for real discussion and debate, not simply a series of “product presentations”.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
STRONG SMART GRID SUMMIT 2011
Smart Grid, Strong Priority
Renaissance® Beijing Capital Hotel
Shanghai, China, 12 April 2011- China is the front runner in terms of Smart Grid technology based on the breakthroughs achieved through the developmental progress in strong Smart Grid construction and R&D. With that in mind, the JFPS Group together with the power grid and power corporations present the Strong Smart Grid Summit 2011 which will discuss the Smart Grid development and policy trends on a global scale.
Key issues that will be addressed during the summit are the deep insight into the whole value chain of Strong Smart Grid industry in China, the development path of the 12th five-year plan of Smart Grid, strong Smart Grid industries with Chinese characteristics, key problems and technologies involved in the construction and R&D of Strong Smart Grid, Smart Grid in the globe: now and future and standards introduced in the Smart Grid pilots. Taking into account the level of infancy of Smart Grid, it relies heavily on multiple factors. Therefore a more unified approach and technical standard is needed.
The event will feature a total of 31 distinguished speakers who are experts in the Smart Grid industry. Some of which include the Director of Center for Resource Solutions from National Development and Reform Commission, Deputy Director of the Department of Industrial Economy under the Development Research Center of State Council, Head of State Grid’s Smart Grid Department and a host of others.
The summit will be held over a span of two days beginning on the 15th of June 2011 until the 16th at Beijing, China with a total of eight sessions per day. For a more in depth look into the Smart Grid industry, there will be two track discussions-Power Transmission and Power Distribution on the first day of the summit.

China has surpassed the United States to become the world’s largest energy user, according to Paris-based International Energy Agency. As a rapid growing China’s GDP, it will continue to drive up the domestic energy consumption. The renewables, such as nuclear, wind and solar energy are no doubt seen as the favorable means to complement the energy shortage. A Stronger and Smarter Grid in China will pave the road of the renewables utilization and raise energy efficiency to cut emissions.
Grid is the world’s most complex man-made systems, information, mass, control complex, which also determines the different national conditions, the country’s development direction and focus of the smart grid are also different. In China, strong smart grid is primarily a strong grid, whose extra-high voltage technology has core characteristics including long distance, high capacity and low loss efficiency. But “should be ’strong’ and ’smart’ the advantages of a collection in one person.” This view is being more recognized and accepted. UHV grid as the backbone, with coordinated development of subordinate grids at all levels and support of IT & telecommunication platform, featured by IT-based, interactive and automated. Strong and Smart are two basic requirements for modern power grid development. Strong is the basis and smart is the key. Combination of strong grid structure and grid smartness is the feature of describing modern power grid development by integral and systematic means. Furthermore, the end-users and distribution networks in China are not as mature as most developed countries, and the penetration rate of small-scale renewables are relatively low at the moment. In fact, growth of renewable energy in the country is primarily driven by large-scale projects that do not directly connected to end-users. Given these conditions, it is expected that initial stages of the Chinese smart grid plan will focus on the ability of controlling bulk electricity transfer efficiently, and then moves towards end-users and services integration in the next stages when the users are becoming more ready.
At the same time, the second stage of China’s Smart Grid plan, from 2011 to 2015, not only focus on accelerating UHV, urban and rural grids construction, but also establishing the basic framework for smart grid operation control and interaction, achieving the projected advancements in technology and equipment production, mass deployment. For example, in China ‘smart grid’, are estimated to be a nearly $100 billion opportunity over the next five years. With total power capacity set to reach 1,430 gigawatt by 2015 from 874 gigawatt at the start of 2010, China has to figure out how to bring trillions of kilowatt hours of power to more than a billion customers, sometimes over very long distances.
Smart-grid technology brings power grids into the telecommunications age, connecting “smart meters” in households and businesses to central monitoring systems capable of detecting and redressing outages or overloads in an instant.
The installation of smart meters alone will be worth $3.1 billion in 2011, up from $2.4 billion this year, according to estimates by the China Electricity Council — and foreign firms are already looking to supply components, control and automation systems, and know-how. (from Reuters)
With this mind, the CDMC Smart Grid Series Forum, as a professional and unparallel communication platform, concentrates on supporting an intelligent network and a global vision to our high-level worldwide industrial partners for three year. The 3rd Annual Smart Grid Forum China Focus 2011 (Sep. 15th -17th 2011) will bring industry thought leaders and a focused group of audience together to discuss the policy & the regulatory landscape, smart grid standardization, customer-side issues (billing, metering & CRM), ICT, smart distribution and smart integration of renewables.
The Organizing Committee of the 3rd Annual China Smart Grid Forum 2011 is looking forward your participation in Shanghai.
