• Summit brought together leaders from business and government to accelerate progress and continued investment in India’s 21st century energy agenda;
• Digital Solutions could pave the way for more efficient and accessible energy to meet India’s soaring demand required over the next several decades.

GE, in partnership with Mint and Hindustan Times, yesterday convened distinguished members from the government of India, policy leaders and industry experts to discuss the country’s evolving electricity landscape and explore pathways towards a modern, affordable, reliable and sustainable energy future. Among the most prominent topics of discussion were energy efficiency and digital solutions for India, which were shown to have the potential to drive enormous value across the entire electricity value chain.

Mr. Piyush Goyal, Hon’ble Minister for Power, Coal, and New and Renewable Energy, Government of India said,“The Future of Electricity in India depends on affordability, sustainability and energy security. To supply 24X7 Power for All at a highly affordable price in the near future, we are keen to use the latest technology to achieve the fine balance between conventional and renewable power. India provides a huge opportunity for all players with a level playing field and I welcome all global players to invest in India’s energy sector.”

Meeting India’s vast energy requirements is critical to sustaining the country's growth rate and quality of life. To improve well-being and boost economic development, the government of India is targeting large capacity additions 100 GW alone between 2017 and 2022. The International Energy Agency estimates that India’s Installed power generation capacity is likely to surge from just under 300 GW today to over 1000 GW by 2040. These goals were a key focus area for discussion at the Future of Electricity Summit.

Mr. Paul Simons, Deputy Executive Director, International Energy Agency, while talking about India’s energy outlook said,“India will be the single most important contributor to global energy growth upto 2040, for conventional as well as renewable power. This presents a huge opportunity in power generation, transmission & distribution as well as in enhancing energy efficiency. To leverage India’s critical role in the new global energy order we need a robust policy regime that can ensure the necessary investments and strong long term partnerships with the private sector.”

Summit participants discussed the government’s electricity reforms and various power sector challenges, including the need to improve efficiency and reliability of India’s installed base; emissions control; achieving the government’s aggressive renewable energy targets and associated grid integration; the future role of gas and coal-fired generation; and a path forward to support the government’s plans to increase energy access for all.

“Transformational change is coming to India thanks to progressive policies and reforms, and there is a great opportunity for India to achieve ambitious national energy goals more efficiently than in the past,” said Steve Bolze, president and CEO of GE Power. “India has taken the lead in proving that access to electricity drives economic growth, job creation and opportunity for everyone, and digital solutions can help bring about greater access. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with the government and our customers in providing power technology and solutions to India.”

As one of the founding partners of the Summit, GE Power talked about a holistic systems approach towards improving energy access and achieving cleaner, reliable and affordable power in which all new power generation technologies from centralized base load power like higher efficiency coal plants and flexible load-following gas power to mainstream renewables like wind, hydro and solar - have their role to play in a digitally optimized generation mix. GE also demonstrated how digitization, software and analytics also can help India more rapidly achieve its energy ambitions by maximizing performance and efficiency across the entire electricity value chain, which includes generation, transmission and distribution.

The Summit was one of several efforts in which GE Power has reaffirmed its commitment to India and supported India’s remarkable progress in delivering ambitious energy solutions to drive the country’s rapid growth and improve quality of life. Participating leaders included: Piyush Goyal, Honorable Minister for Power, Coal, and New & Renewable Energy; Anil Swarup, Secretary, Minister of State for Coal; Gurdeep Singh, Chairman & MD, NTPC; Sumant Sinha, CEO, ReNew Power; Ajay Mathur, Director General, TERI; Paul Simons, Deputy Executive Director, IEA; Steve Bolze, President & CEO, GE Power and Banmali Agrawala, President & CEO, GE South Asia.
