We entered the energy infrastructure vertical in Fiscal 2011. As part of our business in this vertical, we undertake design, installing, laying, testing and commissioning of electricity transmission lines, electricity distribution lines and electricity substations, respectively. As of December 31, 2017, we completed 11 energy infrastructure construction and development projects in a timely manner.
The estimated investment in the transmission sector is expected to be ~₹ 3 trillion over the next five years, largely to be driven by the need for robust and reliable transmission system, support continued generation additions, strong push for renewable energy sector, and rural electrification. Also, strong execution capability coupled with healthy financials of PGCIL will drive investments. Moreover, rising private sector participation with favorable risk-return profile of transmission projects will also aid investments.
Distribution investments are expected to improve to ₹ 2.9 trillion over Fiscals 2018 to 2022 as compared with ₹ 1.9 trillion over the previous five years led by the new government's thrust on improving access to electricity and providing 24x7 power to all. Besides, central government schemes such as Integrated Power Development Scheme (IPDS) and DeendayalUpadhyaya Gram JyotiYojana (DDUGJY) will support development of T&D segment.
