Smart Grid in India: Charting the Course
Date: Feb 2015
India is an emerging economy with great strength, potential and influence. It's also rife with power sector problems--from electricity theft to mismanagement in the power supply. Tommy Wayne, VP of Meetings with the IEEE Power & Energy Society, explores India's current electric grid challenges and poses a new course of action: solving problems with technology. Wayne points out that India's challenges are rather unique--often mired in social anxieties. However, it's combining private sector advantages with government policies that will move India in a forward direction.
