Smart Grid Solution
The new Avatar of Power Grid.HCL has made big leaps in Smart Grid domain in last one year. We have made significant investments in terms of R&D initiatives with world leading academic groups, collaborating with industry leaders for creation of future age Smart Grid solution. HCL also studied other initiatives being undertaken worldwide. It was realized that lot of pilot projects were being initiated but without proper collaboration amongst participating stakeholders/vendors, interoperability challenges were derailing lot of plans and not was being gained. This led to the conceptualization of a Smart Grid Lab.
HCL envisioned the Smart Grid Lab as a replica of a Power Grid. With its ecosystem partners, HCL has setup various devices like Smart meters, Home Area Network appliances and related solutions in the lab. This provides opportunities for evaluating new concepts, business cases, solutions, products before rolling them into the field. Smart Grid Lab also helps in determining best fit combination of devices and ecosystem solutions for a specific problem statement. Lab also helps HCL engineers in discovering new problems/puzzles which needs to be addressed.
