IEEMA’s virtual exhibition Distribuelec 2021 inaugurated
The Indian Electrical and Electronics Manufacturers' Association (IEEMA), an association of manufacturers of electrical, industrial electronics and allied equipment, virtually organised the fourth edition of “Distribuelec”, an exposition on power distribution, showcasing products, technologies and services. The exhibition was inaugurated today by the Minister of Power RK Singh. More than 800 delegates virtually attended the ceremony.
The theme of Distribuelec 2021 is Intelligent Power Distribution with Safety, Sustainability and Hi-Technology.
Inaugurating the event, Singh said, “We want products to be manufactured here for which we will provide land at a feasible rate for which we have a scheme where we will set up three manufacturing zones around the country. I invite electrical companies to set up their industries and manufacture components, which we are importing.”
Anil Saboo, President IEEMA, said, “There is an increasing need for a digitised, automated and controlled power system for optimising power flows and reduce losses. Technology is the only enabler for enhancing sustainability and reliability of the power distribution system.”
IEEMA is also organising “Buildelec 2021” exhibition and a technical conference “Intelect 2021” to bring power distribution stakeholders--discoms, consumer, electrical operational technology (OT), and information technology (IT).
