The electric grid is on the threshold of a paradigm shift – after 100 years of focus on centralized power generation and creation of massive electric grids that span the globe, the shift is now towards de-centralized generation. In the past 5 years, the picture of the grid has changed dramatically in many geographies. With the increasing share of generation resources being added at the distribution end, the traditional boundaries between generation, transmission and distribution are fast disappearing. With consumers becoming ‘prosumers’, the grid that is built for one-way flow of electricity is now experiencing bi-directional flow of electrons, revenue and data. Large fleets of Electric Vehicles that will be soon be able to aggregate as virtual power plants which could support short-term supply-demand balancing will make the grid even more dynamic and complex. For many such applications, cross cutting issues such as communications, cyber security, data analytics, business models, policies and regulations will be of high importance. India Smart Grid Forum (ISGF) in association with Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL) and Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology (NSIT) is pleased to announce an INNOTHON as part of India Smart Grid Week (ISGW) 2017 for inviting innovative ideas that could transform the power sector.
