The indicative components of smart grids in 12th plan would be broadly as follows:
Smart grid being a new and evolving field, the activities presently envisaged are only indicative and during the course of implementation, further activities can be incorporated based on evolution of technology.
The basic infrastructure is being created under RAPDRP/IPDS in large towns, over which the Smart Grid development can be superimposed. IT implementation and SCADA being carried out will be leveraged for Smart grid. The Infrastructure being created under System strengthening being done in Part-B will be leveraged for better and effective use so as to be ready to support Smart Grid technologies / functionalities upon completion. AMI will be implemented and all the consumer meters being installed in these cities will preferably be Smart Meters. Under Part-B works utility should preferably provision for RMUs, sectionalizers, path for alternate feeding etc. Substation modernization will be done under Part-B and wherever there is economic feasibility GIS will be installed.
As envisaged in the Roadmap, NSGM will promote development of Microgrids in islands, SEZs, institutions and commercial hubs that would dovetail the existing projects under renewable energy projects and other international support programs.
Promotion of EVs:
Deployment of EV Charging Infrastructure envisaged under the National Mission for Electric Mobility of MoHI can be coordinated under NSGM in some of these cities.
Distributed Generation in form of Roof top PVs
the promotion of grid connected solar capacity addition, JNNSM also has a mandate to encourage the rooftop solar segment. The promotion of Roof top PV based Distributed Generation will be encouraged with invigoration of Central and state government’s schemes in association with MNRE and respective state governments and mechanism of funding and incentives will be worked out under their schemes.
Technology Demo Projects for Real Time Monitoring
These initiatives are directed towards improving Quality and reliability of Power and will be partly-funded under NSGM in these cities.
The outlay of NSGM has been re-rationalised / recast. The total estimated cost for all the projects and NSGM activities for 12th Plan is Rs.980 Crore including a budgetary support of Rs.338 Crores. Details are as follows:
|Sl.||Activity||Estimated Cost (in Rs. Crs.)||Proposed Budgetary Support (in Rs. Crs.)||Budgetary Support for 12th Plan (in Rs. Crs.)|
