About Distribution Utility Meet (DUM) 2019

ISGF has been organizing Distribution Utility Meet (DUM) since 2017.The first edition of DUM in 2017 was hosted by Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (BESCOM) in November 2017 in Bangalore and the second edition was hosted by Tata Power Delhi Distribution Ltd (TPDDL) and Tata Power Mumbai Mumbai in Nov 2018. DUM 2018 was a huge success with participation of 35+ utilities from India. DUM provides a unified voice to influence and enable the DISCOM community to leverage each other's experiences for successful nationwide smart grid roll outs and to bridge the gap between strategy and execution. Leading utilities from USA, Canada and Europe also participated in DUM 2018 and shared their experiences in implementing Smart Grid Technologies. Third edition of DUM 2019 will be held on 07 - 08 November 2019 in New Delhi and will be hosted by BRPL, BYPL, TPDDL and Tata Power Mumbai.

Key Objective of DUM 2019

As India embarks on its smart grid journey, it is imperative that we do not make the same mistakes but learn from each other's experiences. Given the nebulous nature of smart grids, which have been described as a journey more than a destination, as well as the fact that there is no single architecture, standard, etc., there is immense value to utilities in sharing best practices, lessons learned, challenges faced, etc., in addition to collectively stating needs which will be relevant for solution providers as well as policymakers and regulators.


Key objectives of the Smart Utility Forum and the workshop would be:

• Evaluate Regulatory, Policy, Financial and Business Challenges of Discoms for Sustainable Solutions
• Discuss and Evaluate New and Emerging Business Models and Monetization Options
• Emerging Technologies, their Benefits and Brainstorm Demonstration Projects
• Discuss Case Studies and Best Practices from Across the Globe
