The country’s power sector has been going through a massive transformation. 54th SKOCH Summit on State of Power Sector addressed some of the key areas of the sector such as State of the Power Sector: Emerging Policies, Regulations & Reforms in Indian Utilities; Challenges faced by the Indian utilities: People, Processes & Technology Adoption and Innovation, New Technologies and Cyber Security.
In his opening remarks, Sameer Kochhar, Chairman of SKOCH Group and an eminent reforms historian said, “Did Modi government deliver? As author of ModiNomics, this is the question I am often asked these days. With four and a half years of current government in power, it is critical for all of us to think that how the report card looks like. I promise to all of you that much before elections, my book “Did ModiNomics deliver?” will answer this big question.”
Receiving the SKOCH Award, Anand Kumar, Secretary, Ministry of New & Renewable Energy said, “Today India is leading the growth in renewable energy on the world map. We have already installed 73.35 GW, projects worth 21.5 GW are under various stages of implementation and projects amounting to another 25 GW are under various stages of bidding.”
