  14. 14. 14 STAKEHOLDER EXPECTATIONS ● Issues of regulation and policy: Electricity is under the state list and not under the Union list. Hence Union govt has difficulty in implementing reforms uniformly. ● Lack of coordination among states (in terms of standards, communication protocol etc.) ● Rules for incentivizing themes such as energy efficiency and conservation Source: ISGF SmartGrid-SmarterPower – Team Finland / Finpro India
  15. 15. 15 STAKEHOLDER EXPECTATIONS Important Takeaways for All Stakeholders across Three Key Timescales 1. Short term: Lay the foundations for success a. Policy-makers and Regulators – Create the right conditions for innovation and certainty over funding and regulatory treatment while driving alignment on standards b. Utilities and Partners – Develop broad-based consortia, focus on creating a stable technology platform and engage consumers where they are likely to be personally affected 2. Medium term: Reshape the agenda and roll-out proven technologies a. Policy-makers and Regulators – Review the regulatory framework to align incentives and encourage private-sector investment b. Utilities and Partners – Use initial data to help shape the regulatory agenda; pilot changes to the operating model and processes; share data and use simulation to make the value case for roll-out of “proven” technologies 3. Longer term: Change the model •Policy-makers and Regulators – Reward utility innovation and encourage participation of new entrants that may offer new business models •Utilities and Partners – Position the value case for full-scale roll-out of technologies as the economics improve; innovate around the business model to offer customers greater value; and use behavioural segmentation data to target a greater proportion of customers with differentiated product and service offerings SmartGrid-SmarterPower – Team Finland / Finpro India
  16. 16. 16 STAKEHOLDER EXPECTATIONS Smart Grid Benefits by Stakeholder SmartGrid-SmarterPower – Team Finland / Finpro India
