IEEMA Conducts 16th T&D Conclave 2023

Indian Electrical & Electronics Manufacturers’ Association (IEEMA) inaugurated the 16th edition of T&D Conclave in New Delhi on 16th December 2023.

Dr. Ajay Mathur, Director General, International Solar Alliance was the guest of honour at the conclave. Addressing the conclave, Dr. Mathur said, “…I expect transmission growth of approximately 5 percent a year till 2050…the key issue is as the demand for electricity grows in our homes as well as in our industry and offices we will need more and more transmission capacity to meet those demands”. He highlighted the importance of providing every citizen access to electricity as soon as possible, and of moving towards carbon net-zero power generation.

Mr. Hamza Arsiwala, President, IEEMA, expressed the importance of T&D infrastructure in India’s economic growth. Mr. Arsiwala said that a parallel frid is being developed due to the recent focus on renewables and the country’s carbon net-zero goals. “Besides the conventional T&D there’s a lot of opportunities in railways, data centres and smart cities and going beyond also in the defence, it’s a really exciting time”, he said.
