In his keynote address, Mr Singh said, this program is much needed in the power sector. He encouraged technologists to come forward not only with solutions to existing problems but also with other problem statements and ideas for reliable power supply. He said that ideas and concepts will be rewarded with licence and the development of prototypes will also be fostered.
