Information Technology in Power Sector

The power sector is opening up and use of information technology and automation systems can play a major role in bringing about standardization, transparency, revenue realization and reduction in transmission and distribution losses in the sector. Technology innovation can only benefit the sector and IT has a major role to play in empowering the power supply utilities.

There is a huge need for specialized, customized and upgraded software systems for the power sector. The restructured Rs 500 billion APDRP initiative gives high priority for implementation of IT enabled solutions to reduce AT&C losses. The recently updated report of IT Task Force in October 2008 also observes that technology will enable the transformation of power sector in India. (download report pdf)

The size and the scope of the software order are significant. India’s state-owned power utilities are expected to place significant orders of software that can help them in project monitoring and in managing their networks better.

The Seminar will focus on ‘Application of IT for Upgradation of Technical Performance and Automation in Power Supply Sector’ and ‘Better Financial Engineering with the Information Technology’ in Power Sector covering generation, transmission and distributions segments. The ‘IT in Power’ seminar & exhibition series offers a unique platform to learn, discuss and exchange experience about the major structural, technical, managerial & regulatory changes in IT & automation applications amongst stakeholders.
