Commenting on the participation Mr. Vinod Raphael, Country Business Head, OMRON Electronic & Mechanical Components Division, India said, “Power is an indispensible element of the infrastructure of a country, playing a key role in driving its economy. Reports manifest that though India operates as the fourth largest power system in the world, our per capita consumption of electricity is one-fourth of the world average and one-third of our population have no access to electricity. Some of the key factors contributing towards this issue are technical and non-technical losses including power pilferage.
