Empowering smart cities

India is on the threshold of change. The government has stepped on the accelerator to take the “Smart India Mission” to a higher level through substantial budgetary provisions, providing the much-needed thrust under the 12th Five-Year Plan.
The bold vision encompasses 100 smart cities, which specifically includes the original 30 cities envisaged under the NSGM (National Smart Grid Mission). In the context of smart cities, intelligent electricity is a key area and would define the smart aspect in terms of powering this phenomenon. IEEMA has a key role to play in this equation by being the pre-eminent representative of the power transmission and distribution sector and as a key member of the technical committee of the National Smart Grid Mission. IEEMA aims to take the driving seat in rallying the industry to gear up to this challenge, and INTELECT plays a pivotal part as a part of that strategy.
Planned and developed by IEEMA and IEEE, as part of its MoU for cooperation and exchange of knowledge and expertise, INTELECT is designed as a series of first-of-its-kind technology demonstration pavilions around the theme of ‘connected intelligence in electricity of things’. INTELECT looks at the future of increased and intelligent automation towards sustainability through interconnected power systems by bringing together the entire electricity and electronic ecosystem as a connected ecosystem of all things electric, electronic and is intelligently networkable on to a single event platform.
The maiden edition of INTELECT is slated for 22 to 24 January, 2015. INTELECT also features a conference themed ‘Smart Electricity for Emerging Markets’ designed by IEEE and supported by IEEE Power Engineering Society, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE Communications society.
