The beginning of a new movement for quality infrastructure was recently made with the launch of Power Cable Alliance (PCA).
Two copper rod manufacturers, eight Indian leading power cable manufacturers and one international power cable entity – have come together to form PCA. PCA is an association of organizations and individuals which will work together to push for the creation of safe, reliable and efficient electrical infrastructure in the country.
PCA was formally launched in Mumbai in august presence of Subhash Desai, Mining & Industries Minister, Government of Maharashtra, corporate leaders from across industries. PCA was launched with unveiling of Logo of PCA, website www.copperformore.com and other social media handles. The launch of PCA was preceded by a panel discussion on the theme – Building Safe, Reliable and Efficient Electrical Infrastructure in India.
Stressing on the need for a strong power infrastructure in the country, Subhash Desai, said, “I appreciate the initiative taken by the organizers. We, the government of Maharashtra are equally concerned about the issue of electrical safety and would be hosting a conference where government and private sector can get together to build a program and have a better control of the situation. I would like to invite all the key members of the industry present here to join us and enrich our deliberation.”
Sanjeev Ranjan, Spokesperson, Power Cable Alliance said, “India is the fastest growing major economy and its energy consumption is expected to double in the next six years. This makes it imperative for the country to develop quality electrical infrastructure which will support its growth for several years to come. The infrastructure that we create today should be safe, reliable and efficient so that Indian growth is unhindered.”
He further added, “This is where Power Cable Alliance comes into picture, as a movement demanding the creation of such infrastructure. We are proud to present PCA as a voice for quality Electrical Infrastructure in India. PCA will work with policymakers, regulators industry, academia and civil society to push for safe, reliable and efficient electrical infrastructure.”
PCA’s movement for quality electrical infrastructure is in alignment with Government of India’s “Make in India” initiative. PCA is a firm believer that creation of reliable electrical infrastructure will spur manufacturing activity across the electrical equipment industry in India and will create viable jobs for millions of Indians.
