Publisher’s letter

It is remarkable to be celebrating the 58th year of publication of Electrical India. On this landmark occasion, I take this opportunity in thanking you for your continued support and patronage.

We bring you this annual issue with detailed insights on almost every aspect of Indian power and electrical industry.

In this issue, Ashok Khurana from Association of Power Producers answers the question: “How to revive the thermal power sector?” Former Coal Secretary Anil Swarup acknowledges that UDAY hasn’t travelled the distance it should have travelled in the states.

For 58 years, technology has turned the world upside down and inside out. Now the industry stalwarts tell us how technology will change the future. IEEMA’s Harish Agarwal predicts that the SMEs are going to be the game changer for tomorrow whereas Dr. Harald Griem of Siemens explains how digitisation is transforming energy management and power sector.

Renewable energy is quickly becoming the dominant locus of new electricity generation investment. Here, we present you some thought-provoking insights into the past and the future of renewable energy in India.

We thank all contributors who have helped us celebrate this 58th Annual issue by putting their thoughts to print. We hope you will celebrate with us. Do send me your comments at miyer@charypublications.in
