A structured approach to renewable energy by Utilities and other stakeholders will allow for seamless integration without cost duplication and service interruption. The digital components of this strategy will enhance efficiency and eliminate redundancy. Forecasting will improve visibility of demand for conventional power plants. This would enable them to better plan their
generation thereby preventing idling of assets and increase in power plant efficiency. Real-time communications would eliminate the information asymmetry between renewable generators, system operators and consumers. As a result, coordinated actions will reduce the stress on network assets, thus preventing breakdowns and elongating lifespan.
There are many advantages to the consumers, generators and the civil society as a whole. The savings would be distributed across the entire country. But most importantly, digital technologies will pave the way for futuristic collaboration between various Utilities, their consumers and generators.
