Conference on efficient electricity consumption begins

Srinagar: Indian Electrical & Electronics Manufacturers Association (IEEMA) along with IEEE organized a three day conference INTELECT, at Mumbai on the efficient consumption of electricity.
The conference held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai aims to bring together, policymakers, business leaders and academicians to discuss smarter cities, optimizing grid efficiencies thus improving lives of people.
Dr. Howard E. Michel, President and CEO, IEEE said with growing pressure on the world’s rapidly diminishing natural resources, it is important that we work toward a twofold objective, first to effectively channelize existing resources smartly and second to leverage new forms of renewable resources.
Vishnu Agarwal, President, IEEEMA said, “INTELECT is one of the pioneering platforms, bringing together, players in the home and office electrical sector. The vision for INTELECT is to showcase the latest innovation and technology in lighting, modular wiring, measurement, conservation, drives, HVAC, storage of electricity, off-grid generation, house and building security, and automation control systems. Conserving energy with smart and intelligent usage is the need of the hour, and we at both IEEE and IEEEMA are committed to ensuring this.”
