Transnational grid interconnections for “One Sun, One World, One Grid” conference held in New Delhi – World News Network

New Delhi [India], September 7 (ANI): In the run-up to the 18th G20 Summit, a one-day conference themed “Transnational Grid Interconnections for One Sun, One World, One Grid (OSOWOG)” convened in New Delhi on September 6.
The conference, spearheaded by the Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (POWERGRID), a ‘Maharatna’ company under the Ministry of Power, Government of India, sought to explore the potential of cross-border energy connectivity and collaboration, read the Ministry of Power press release.
In a virtual address to the conference, Union Minister for Power and New & Renewable Energy, R. K. Singh, underscored India’s commitment to leveraging transnational grid interconnections to harness solar energy efficiently, read the release.
Singh emphasized that such initiatives, like OSOWOG, will enable nations to harness the abundant energy resources of the sun, particularly as the world transitions toward renewable energy sources, read the release.
He highlighted that OSOWOG has the potential to make round-the-clock renewable energy more cost-effective, reducing the need for energy reserves and ultimately lowering electricity costs for the populace while ensuring energy access to millions who currently lack it, read the release.
The Minister expressed his optimism, stating, “Once we have OSOWOG, no one will ever have to go without electricity. This will unite the world and ensure energy access to the millions of people who do not have access.”
The conference featured a distinguished panel of experts, both domestic and international, who provided insights into the significance of transnational grid interconnections.
