Power Pavilion: An Exhibition of Outstanding Performance

- The Pavilion was run by the Ministry of Power, with the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) serving as the nodal agency and 11 other Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) operating under the Ministry working together to make the Pavilion a success.
An Overview of the Power Pavilion’s Principal Goals
- The primary objective of the Power Pavilion was to put on display to domestic and international industry stakeholders the most important efforts that have been undertaken in the power sector.
While this was going on, the Pavilion was attempting to raise public awareness and encourage participation in the various programs and laws that the government has in place with the power industry.
Honorees of the Award
Shri Ajay Agarwal, Director at the Ministry of Power, and Shri Harjit Singh, Chief General Manager (Corporate Communications) at NTPC, were the recipients of the Special Appreciation Medal after it was presented to them.
One of the most successful endeavors is to engage the audience.
- All throughout the duration of the trade exhibition, the Power Pavilion was able to draw in a sizeable number of attendees. Not only did this participatory method educate visitors, but it also provided an experience that they would remember for a long time.
- The Pavilion was able to successfully engage the public through a variety of activities, including quiz competitions, Nukkad Natak (street plays), and magic shows, in addition to presenting information on the power business.
In order to empower lives, the Ministry of Power is working to bridge gaps.
- In India, the Ministry of Power, which is currently led by Union Cabinet Minister Raj Kumar Singh, is responsible for many important responsibilities, including the supervision of the production of energy and the development of transportation infrastructure.
- Projects including generation, transmission, delivery, and maintenance are all included in its scope of responsibility, which encompasses the entirety of the power industry.
In addition to collaborating with the private sector and managing initiatives, such as rural electrification programs, the Ministry helps to manage initiatives with the ultimate goal of empowering lives via the provision of power that is both accessible and sustainable.
It serves as an essential link between the central government and the operations of the state energy systems.
