While India has one of the world's most extensive power grid networks, its modernisation, especially at the last-mile level controlled by power distribution companies (discoms), has progressed slowly. The need to upgrade their archaic power systems along with increasing the share of renewable energy (RE) in their network is prompting these discoms to embrace high-tech solutions. GE Grid Solutions is looking to tap this opportunity by offering solutions to absorb more decentralised RE, senior company executives told Business Standard.
GE has deployed its digital substations in Chandigarh, and its advanced grid management products focussed on grid automation, stability and remote control in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, J&K and Himachal Pradesh, the executives said. The company is also partnering with large industrial groups such as Reliance Industries Ltd, which are now incorporating more RE at both captive and business levels.
