"Engagement at this scale, and with as diverse a demographic as that of Illinois, is unprecedented in the area of the smart grid,” comments Jason Blumberg, executive director of ISEIF. “We have a unique opportunity to further consumer understanding of the smart grid and also, beyond that, to enhance their understanding of electricity and energy use in their everyday lives.”"
"The timescales involved in negotiating projects differ in each case and are not necessarily indicative of other contractual discussions we are involved in,” he added. "
"I do not think there will be any job cuts and I believe GE will be keen on growth and how to grow business further in India, "said Basu in an interaction with Business Standard today. Basu was responding to query related to a possible restructuring of Alstom's operations in India post take over by GE. As part of the deal GE will acquire Alstom's energy assets globally for $16.7 billion and the French company will retain its rail transport business. From a global perspective GE's investments will lead to a long term sustainable growth of Alstom's energy businesses which has been under pressure due to weakness in Europe and stiff competition from Chinese and Korean companies. Additionally, the acquisition will enable GE to expand into thermal, hydro electricity and offshore energy business which are Alstom's core areas, he said while explaining the parent company's deal rationale. Alstom has two listed entities in India with business interests in power generation and transport (Alstom India) and transmission and distribution (Alstom T&D). The French parent owns a 68.56% stake in Alstom India and 75% in Alstom T&D. In May, GE proposed a Rs 2,340 crore open offer to acquire the publicly held shares in Alstom's two India units. "I cannot comment on the open offer as it has been made by GE," Basu said when quizzed whether there will be a revision in offer price as it is lower than the current stock price. He however, added that the offer price made by GE was in accordance with SEBI guidelines and there was no violation. Alstom T&D posted 12% revenue and 40% profit growth in last fiscal. Basu said the company has a healthy order backlog and the number of slow moving orders (which is around 10% of the total orderorder book) are on decline. Basu is optimistic that power sector which has been facing problems due to issues relating to land acquisition, fuel shortage, non payment of dues by state electricity boards will revive within six months to one year. "The outlook in positive. The new government at the Centre has grasped basic hurdles faced by the industry but the success will depend at the speed at which the corrective measures are executed. Fifty per cent of the problems are related to states and there has to be a coordination between states and the Centre. I hope good sense will prevail," he noted. Further, Basu said the company is well placed to tap opportunities in transmission and distribution sector including development of national grid, renewable corridor, smart grid and smart cities projects. He however, declined to give a specific revenue or order guidance. On the government's proposal to launch high speed train between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, Basu said Asltom is quite keen to take part in this project. "However, the government will have to parallely upgrade the existing railway system from 80-100 km to 150-200 km, improve signaling and carve out a special corridor for the high speed train," he added."
"This was another positive year as we pursued financial results that allow us to keep rates low and stable forour customers and to pay down debt while continuing to invest in a smart grid vision that will transform how our customers use electricity" said Ed Barrett, the chair of NB Power's board of directors
