Introduction

India Smart Grid Forum (ISGF), registered under Indian Societies Registration Act
(Act XXI of 1860) is a Public Private Partnership (PPP) initiative of Ministry of Power,
Government of India for accelerated development of smart grid technologies in the
Indian power sector.

The main objectives of ​ISGF are:

• To help Indian power sector to deploy smart grid technologies in an efficient, cost
effective, innovative and scalable manner by bringing together all key stakeholders and
enabling technologies

• To create a platform for public and private stakeholder members, research
institutions and power utilities to drive down myths on smart grids, and create
innovation through information exchanges



To bring together stakeholders specializing in regulation, policy, and business case
with a view to building up a broad
-
based support for smart grid policies.



To undertake research work and other efforts such as scoping the capabilities of
smart grids in the Indian context through case studies, cost
-
benefit framework,
technical advancements in the renewable energy sources and other ancillary activities



To provide advice to Government, Regulators, Utilities and Consumers in the form of
reports and white papers, technical seminars, etc.


ISGF was constituted in 2010, and is functional since November 2011; and has
more than 100 members covering Government, Utilities, Regulators, Industry,
Academia and Research.
