|4. Foreign exchange earnings and outgo : || |
|1) Activities relating to exports, initiatives taken to increase exports, developments of new export markets for products and services and export plans : ||The power sector has been receiving special attention from the private and government sectors world over. Every country has been realising the need to improve the status of the grids, bring in efficiency in Transmission and Distribution and manage demand and supply equation effectively. It is also acknowledged that adopting technology is the only way to achieve these objectives. |
| ||Countries in which stakes are significant for the government are seeing reform initiatives either through funding programs or privatisation to fast-track development, and countries with private sector stakes are seeing technology deployments for efficiency building. Developed countries like the US and the UK are funding or incentivising utilities and co-operatives to deploy smart-grid technologies throughout the grid. While the developed world is a few years' advanced in initiating development, the Asian region is still lagging behind in these initiatives. Having said that, the Asian countries have also realised the need to make the grids smarter since the structure of power sector and the environment in which they operate are similar, viz. power losses by theft, inefficient commercial processes (metering, billing and collection), power deficit and resultant poor customer service. |
| ||The Company's efforts in the last year have shown that the southeast Asian region is a good target market which includes Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam since the distribution inefficiencies are much similar to those in India. These countries are also experiencing either privatisation or government interference to better handle power distribution. Power theft and poor customer service are considered as important factors by utilities for considering technology deployment. Several multilateral organisations like ADB, World Bank and IMF are funding projects taken up by the utilities that have energy-efficiency objective. The Company has also studied the type of the solutions that are required in these countries, and it is understood that automation technologies that have the capabilities of integrating into smart grid, power theft technologies, grid management technologies are mostly preferred. |
| ||Having understood the landscape from a distance, the Company is now working towards approaching and explaining our capabilities to deploy through proper business development network to feel the pulse on the ground and the minds of the stakeholders in the utilities. Shortly, the Company plans to establish partner network to understand immediate and long-term opportunities. |
| ||All the efforts the Company is making are in line to develop the market for a profitable long-term benefit. |
