REMC sets up National Energy Management Centre for Indian Railways

Reportedly, REMC Limited, a subsidiary of RITES Limited, has set up the national energy management centre (NEMC) at its office.

The centre’s objective is to oversee and handle the procurement of energy for the railways on a national scale. The NEMC will gather energy data from the 17 state energy management centres (SEMCs) that are operational throughout the railways, and will serve as a centralised hub, offering Indian Railways a convenient single-window service. It will focus on optimising scheduling and forecasting, and integrating the generation profiles of both conventional and renewable power sources. Further, it will provide real-time schedule advice, announce capacity revisions, and facilitate power exchange, ensuring a robust and efficient energy management system for the Railways.
