IElectrix present at the India Smart Utility Week 2020

New Delhi, India

IElectrix is the first European H2020 project including a real-scale urban Microgrid demonstration in India


The India Smart Utility Week 2020, held at the Delhi Lalit Hotel from the 3th to the 6th March 2020, is one of the most important Smart Utility events in India. This year IElectrix project had an active participation with several presentations, contributions to specific sessions and the presentation of a technical paper on the Indian demonstrator SHAKTI.

IElectrix is a project one of its kind as it is the first European H2020 project including a real-scale urban Microgrid demonstrator in India, more specifically in Delhi. Keeping an active presence in Indian Smart Utility events such as the ISUW is therefore very important since it allows a better communication of the project at a local level.

From the 4th to the 6th March IElectrix animated a stand at the European Union Pavilion, this was the occasion to explain in more detail the objectives and the challenges of the project as well as to interact with different Indian and European visitors. Also a great opportunity to meet and discuss with the team of Tata Power DDL IElectrix’s local project partner.

To kick-start, IElectrix was presented by the Project Coordinator, Pierre-Jacques LeQuellec, as part of the “Presentation on EU-India joint call on Smart and Integrated Local Energy Systems” session held the 4th March at the EU Pavilion.

On Wednesday 5th March IElectrix contributed to the brainstorming session on "smart grid replication study" which aims to support the assessment of the upscaling and replication potential in Indian contexts of promising smart grid solutions that have been demonstrated in the EU and/or India. The same day the project was presented during the 9th EU-India Smart Grid Workshop.

On Friday 6th March the Project Coordinator presented the selected technical paper “SHAKTI Demonstration” which defines and explains the methodology applied for the definition ot the demonstrators Use Cases and the technical innovations that will be implemented for the experimentation. Finally the project was presented a second time at the EU Pavilion as part of the “EU Excellence in Smart Grids Technologies”.
