Working Group 5

Working Group Name : Load Control and Consumption

Chair Person : Girish Ghatikar, ISGF Honorary Member

​​​​​​

Introduction

Power is an essential ingredient for achieving the economic and social development of a country. There is a clear correlation between energy consumption growth and increase in GDP. In this regard, the development of Electric Utilities in India has not been able to catch up with the economic growth. As per the statistics, there is an overall energy shortage of approximately 10% and a peak demand deficit of 13 %. This continuous widening deficit will make it difficult for India to achieve the projected high levels of economic growth and therefore requires a multi-pronged strategy: one of them is focusing on on managing the energy consumption and the peak load.

Objective

WG-5 would recommend technologies and solutions which can be adopted in India for load control and consumption to enable peak load management and overall energy management

Scope

1. To recommend technologies (appliances, storage, electric vehicles etc) and regulatory/policy options viable in Indian conditions with a focus on demand side management, demand response management and TOU/variable pricing as key processes for peak load shaving and energy efficiency.

2. To focus on energy controlling and measurement systems and devices with an objective of understanding real time energy consumption information leading to smarter energy consumption with a focus on sectors such as Industries, Commercial buildings (including data centres ), Infrastructure and residential sector.

3. To coordinate with key institutions/groups like BIS, IEC, IEEE, BEE, BIS, state designated agencies and Utilities etc. to adopt appropriate standards for DR in India.

4. To work with BEE to formulate standards for appliances that are Smart Grid ready
