Bengal to offer grid connected land for RE
The revelation came at the 4th Energy Conclave organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Eastern Region in Kolkata.
“West Bengal will continue enjoy energy and have assured fuel linkages for forthcoming expansion plans,” said De, who is also the Convener of the 4th Energy Conclave.
The Conclave was attended by all stakeholders – from policymakers, key energy professionals, representatives from generation, transmission and distribution sectors, to independent power producers, energy consultants/auditors, energy equipment manufacturers, and even users.
De highlighted what West Bengal has achieved in the past 10 years and why it can be a role model for other states in the country.
“We made a conscious departure from ultra-mega power projects and increased efficiency by having more discoms. This has increased efficiency in fluctuation and enhanced flexibility. We have absolutely no worry in the next 8-10 years,” De claimed at the Inaugural Session of the Energy Conclave, a flagship annual CII initiative.
