India Smart Grid Workshop Series
Date: March 2, 2015

The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) is sponsoring an India Smart Grid Workshop Series to bring together U.S. and Indian power sector stakeholders for future project implementation. The workshops and site visits will assist Indian utilities to address their growing power needs through a better understanding of U.S. grid modernization, demand side management, and renewable energy integration technologies, as well as the policies, best practices and financing mechanisms to support project deployment.

The second workshop will take place on March 2, 2015 in Bangalore, India in coordination with India Smart Grid Week, March 3-7, 2015. The agenda will highlight U.S. grid modernization and load reduction technologies and the best practices, policies and financing mechanisms to support them. Additionally, USTDA smart grid grant participants and their U.S. contractors will share information gained through USTDA smart grid grant programs and introduce opportunities in the Indian power sector. The full-day workshop will be followed by a networking reception. 

The first one-day workshop took place in December 2014 in San Francisco, CA. In addition to the workshop, the delegation made up of senior officials from Indian utilities, participated in a series of roundtables, utility site visits and meetings in San Francisco, CA; Portland, OR; and Washington, DC.

India is at the threshold of dynamic growth in the deployment of smart grid and integration of renewable energy projects. Participation in the upcoming workshop offers great potential and partnering opportunities for both U.S. companies that provide grid modernization and load reduction technologies, and a great opportunity for Indian utilities to learn about the U.S. technologies and suppliers available to assist with smart grid development.
