The Power Gen India and Central Asia was marked by qualitative participation, with participants looking forward to a reversal in the fortunes of the power sector.
The power sector in India is poised for a revival was the underlying sentiment at the Power Gen India and Central Asia event that took place in the power capital of the country recently. The event brought together decision makers and influencers as well as technical experts and professionals from leading companies involved in the power generation, transmission and distribution within India and around the world. While some termed this year´s attendance as frugal as compared to the previous occurrences, there was also a belief that quality participation was seen this year instead of a quantitative one. Anticipating a stable government (and we got one!), industry players believed that tough and forward looking reforms and measures were the need of the hour.
´The Indian power sector is in a peculiar situation. On the one hand demand exceeds supply manifold, and on the other hand we are unable to ramp up supply in the same measure. This leads to rising energy costs, especially power. In the given backdrop, the role of energy efficiency as a measure to offset rising energy costs is critical for companies in the sector to remain competitive. This becomes even more relevant in a growing economy like ours. HRS' decade long experience of energy efficient heat exchanger technology enables us to provide heat transfer products and solutions to meet these challenges in power sector," said V Gokuldas, Managing Director, HRS Process Systems Ltd, emphasising on the role of energy efficiency in the country. The company, part of HRS Group, UK, displayed HRS Funke Plate Heat Exchangers and Ecoflux Corrugated Tube Heat Exchangers variants at the event.
India is the sixth largest in terms of power generation. About 65 per cent of the electricity consumed in India is generated by thermal power plants, 22 per cent by hydroelectric power plants, 3 per cent by nuclear power plants and the balance 10 per cent from other alternate sources like solar, wind, biomass etc. A total of 53.7 per cent of India´s commercial energy demand is met through the country´s vast coal reserves. According to an RNCOS Research Report, ´India´s power sector will add nearly 45000 MW to its total installed capacity by 2014´.
Another company that showcased its products and solutions for the power industry was SKF India, focusing on Life Cycle Management for Power Assets. The solutions cover all aspects of the life cycle from improved designs with integrated solutions to enhanced operations and maintenance. The company is helping power plants to improve performance and reduce Total Cost of Ownership through SKF Life Cycle Management. The three-day event drew enthusiastic participation from a number of players in the power industry.
