The Indian Urban Sector is on the threshold of transformational change with the Government of India’s commitment to improve the quality of urban life and provide clean and sustainable environment by efficiently utilising available assets, resources and infrastructure.
In order to achieve these objectives, the Indian government has already launched several ambitious programs, such as the 100 Smart Cities Program, the Modified Renewable Energy Plan, the National Smart Grid Mission and the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) for 500 cities, among others. The 100 Smart Cities Program and AMRUT alone have been initially allocated with outlays of INR 48,000 crore (approx. £5 billion) and INR 50,000 crore (approx. £5.2 billion), respectively. All these programs will offer immense opportunities to international investors and technology companies.
India Smart Grid Forum (ISGF) and Security Watch India (SWI) are jointly organising “Smart, Secure and Sustainable Cities India-Investment Summit”, the 4th annual international conference and exhibition, to be held on 13th to 14th July 2015 at The Harte & Garter, Windsor, Royal Berkshire, UK to explore these opportunities and discuss the way forward.
Key areas of discussion will include:
- The road towards Smart Cities – challenges for developing countries
- Role of Smart Grids
- Smart Energy for Smart Cities – Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Energy Storage
- Smart, Safe and Resilient Cities
- Water and waste management
- Smart transportation and mobility
