IEEE and Indian Electrical & Electronics Manufacturers' Association (IEEMA) co-hosted a three-day conference and exposition in Mumbai, India, that focuses on the efficient consumption of electricity. The event was attended by Shri Subhash Desai, minister for industries, Government of Maharashtra.

INTELECT is a first of its kind interactive platform on the challenging issues of smart energy consumption, with more than 100 exhibitors, such as ABB, Schneider Electric, L&T, KNX and world class technical speakers for the INTELECT conference themed "Smart Electricity for Emerging Markets."

Howard E. Michel, president and CEO, IEEE said, "IEEE is dedicated to advancing technology for humanity. We must integrate appropriate technologies with relevant standards to improve infrastructure and create employment opportunities. Power and energy are crucial elements for a successful and comfortable living environment. Hence, with growing pressure on the world's rapidly diminishing natural resources, it is important that we work toward a twofold objective, first to effectively channelise existing resources smartly and second to leverage new forms of renewable resources."

Vishnu Agarwal, president, IEEMA said, "INTELECT is one of the pioneering platforms, bringing together under one roof, players in the home and office electrical sector. Our vision for INTELECT is to showcase the latest innovation and technology in lighting, modular wiring, measurement, conservation, drives, HVAC, storage of electricity, off-grid generation, house and building security, and automation control systems. Conserving energy with smart and intelligent usage is the need of the hour, and we at both IEEE and IEEMA are committed to ensuring this."
