Multi – Discom Focus
The problem statements will be arrived at by taking a consultative approach via a series of roundtables where Indian electric utilities along with other stakeholders in the power sector will participate.
Solutions for optimized operations and management of a smart and decarbonized grid
What is the Problem
Discoms face a multitude of operational risks, including around equipment safety & physical damage, as well as electricity theft. This leads to an increase in their aggregate losses, on account of preventable downtime (e.g. due to mishaps) and equipment replacement.
What are we looking for
Grid management solutions for better risk assessment, asset mapping, monitoring and threat-identification using real-time data to help discoms to eventually transition to a decarbonized smart grid.
Mature power sector startups from India (and potentially, globally) would develop and submit business-cases based on their viable and scalable solutions, based on the problem statments, such as (an illustrative and non-comprehensive list):
- Solutions that can identify (and/or predict) electricity theft
- Solutions that enhance grid-system reliability with visibility at the asset-level
- Solutions that enhance equipment or human safety
- Solutions that allow increased flexibility in the grid to incorporate more variable clean power sources and/or demand response
Who should apply?
This program is for mature power sector startups with developed solutions. Startups can either be based in India, or be incorporated in an overseas jurisdiction but have the capacity to set up operations in India.Apply Now!
