And many other national and international organizations have participated in Power Gen 2012. The exhibitors are here to display their best product and technology of power generation and distribution solutions, for instance L & T Power is showcasing their ultra critical power plants that is eco friendly and fuel efficient, on the other hand Siemens is here to provide solutions for gas turbines , steam turbines and wind turbines. In today's scenario we have to look for best solutions for power generation and distribution because natural resources are decreasing day by day and we have to find another way for energy saving and generation.
At the occasion of inauguration, Shri Ashok Lavasa, Addl. Secretary, Ministry of Power, India* said that," The Power Gen has been organized at a very important time , with the starting of 12 th year plan, power Gen would serve as a good platform that would help in giving out solution and technology for the generation of power. In last 5 years, power sector has really witnessed a growth and so private sectors are playing important role in the industry. The supercritical power program which is added in our 12 year plan as it would help in increasing the generation of power and the super critical technology will result in saving of about 4% of fuel and correspondingly less emission.
Mr. B.K Chatturvedi, Member - Energy planning commission said that," In 12th year plan there are some issues which needs to be resolved to get a bright and a better future like, Access of power for all - Today 45% of the rural areas in our country are still deprived of electricity. It is an important issue which has been considered in 12th year plan that the electricity should reach to all those villages which are still deprived of electricity as it is an important aspect for the growth of our economy
Next issue is Availibility - programs are designed for Power Generation using Solar Power, wind Power and super critical power plant that should add on in power generation. 2 new nuclear plants are also planned in Maharashtra and Orissa.With the increase in power generation environment would be a major issue, so steps are also taken up to save the environment." He added.
Power Gen India & Central Asia, Renewable Energy World India and HydroVision India 2012 provides the perfect platform from organizers, PennWell and Inter Ads Exhibitions, to drive India on the path of success, by showcasing the latest technologies and trends, disseminate vital information about industry research, techniques and technologies and lay the foundations for significant advancements and practical business intelligence for the future
The conventional, renewable and hydro power sectors in India have witnessed some important success stories in the last 4-5 years and if India is to continue its surge ahead as a leading power force, government and private sector companies will need to take into account the innumerable challenges that result from marked divisions between planning for the future and past delivery in an effort to bridge the gap between supply and demand.
It is evident the deficit in power availability in India is a significant impediment to the smooth development of the economy. In this context, there is a dire need for the country to reduce the deficit between demand and supply. Large projects are being undertaken across generation, transmission and distribution segments of the sector to fill this gap, and the event will serve as the perfect occasion to introduce new technologies, equipments and logistics to tackle current problems facing the industry.
The event has brought together technocrats, industry leaders, and senior government officials from central and state government as well as eminent experts from overseas, who have wide experience in the field of generation of power and its related sectors.
Over the course of three-days, the conference programme will incorporate 29 sessions of discussions providing a roadmap for time bound solutions to override short term problems holding back the power sector and for exhibitors and delegates to know more about the current scenario in the power sector.
Hosted by senior personals from the industry, the conference is set to highlight critical bottlenecks facing the industry with policies and strategies to diminish gaps in the market and move forward to attain a sustainable power future.
Understanding core issues and risks which India has to overcome, identifying new investment opportunities that lie ahead and taking advantage of new technologies to optimize efficiency and performance will be just some of the main agenda items up for discussion under key topics such as Minimizing Conventional Power's Emissions, Refurbishment & Modernization & Upgradation Projects, India's Hydroelectric Future, Deliverying India's Solar Mission and Rural Electrification: The Challenges and Opportunities.
While the industry is heavily dependent on equipment suppliers and challenges around logistics and work-front availability, timely and strategic application of project management, logistics, technology and principles along the lifecycle of a project, will also feature across all three sectors: conventional, renewable and hydro power, to improve overall project planning.
Running alongside the conference, the combined exhibition will also showcase innovative designs and cutting-edge solutions and technologies by top local and international companies across the entire power industryLast year, these three co-located events attracted over 7,000 attendees from 41 countries with even more expected this year especially from the growing renewable energy sector.
