Dr. Ashok K Chauhan- Founder President, Amity Group, while sharing his views during the ceremony, stressed that the topic of the Conference is very apt and relevant to the industry, with important topics being discussed during the two days by experts. Dr. Chauhan remarked Control,Automation and Power Engineering are required in every field. He called upon the participants to use the knowledge gained in various sessions for achieving sustainable long term results. He announced to launch Control and Automation Engineering Knowledge Network in Amity through which professionals from Control, Automation and Power Engineering can network and share important break throughs and R&D initiatives in respective domains.

The Chief Guest, Mr. Upendra Kumar- Director, Central Electricity Authority , Ministry of Power, Government of India thanked Amity for inviting him to such an important Conference. He outlined recent developments and changes witnessed by Indian Power Sector. He stressed that India is a fastest growing economy and electricity has to grow commensurately, at the same time ensuring the affordability and quality of electricity supply sans voltage fluctuations. He shared that Union Government has been stressing on quality electricity through pragmatic planning, ensuring least adverse impact on environment. He remarked that India has to go beyond conventional sources of electricity generation and depend more on green bio mass, wind power and solar power. He revealed that atpresent, India generates 70% of the electricity from Thermal sources, 16% fromHydro, 2.2% from Nuclear and rest from Green sources. He stressed that 30% ofgreen power can be accommodated in the Grid.
