Bangalore January 24, 2015: The three-day conference and exposition on theefficient consumption of electricity,cohosted by IEEE and Indian Electrical & Electronics Manufacturers’ Association (IEEMA), witnessed the presence of Chief Guest Shri Subhash Desai, Minister for Industries, Government of Maharashtra. INTELECT was held from January 22 – 24, 2015 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai, India.


INTELECT is a first of its kind interactive platform on the challenging issues of smart energy consumption, with over 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’.

Dr. Howard E. Michel, President  & 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 channelize existing resources smartly and second to leverage new forms of renewable resources.”


Mr. 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.”
