Tata Power, one of India's largest integrated power companies, joined hands with Enel Group, one of the largest integrated players in the global power and renewable markets, for implementing two key pilot projects through former's Delhi based distribution business. Both organizations share the mutual goal of driving energy security for efficient and sustainable operations and this partnership will help speed up private sector participation in the digital transformation of power distribution grids in India. It will also support customization of innovative solutions as per the Indian landscape and help in future- proofing the grids by enhancing grid intelligence, thereby making them resilient and sustainable.Under the agreement, Tata Power's distribution arm, Tata Power Delhi Distribution, serving 1.9M customers in North Delhi will work closely with Enel Group affiliate company Gridspertise, jointly controlled by Enel Grids and CVC Capital Partners, on project implementation. The first pilot project will focus on to accelerating digitalization and automation of secondary substations and see Tata Power joining the international co-creation program of Gridpertise's proprietary Quantum Edge® Device. This collaborative program will virtualise grid functionalities and enable protection and control, automation, real-time fault detection and service restoration of the network.The other project is aimed at deploying Gridpertises' metering technology on a pilot basis in the Delhi power distribution network. It focuses on testing and evaluating the new hybrid smart metering technology featuring dual communication channel, via hybrid Power Line Communication and Radio Frequency. It offers a robust, efficient and secure communication channel by auto-switching between PLC and RF channels depending on real time field conditions .Both the projects are in line with Tata Power's and Enel Group's commitment to strengthen the mutual goal of driving energy transformation.Tata Power is spearheading major transformation in the Indian power distribution landscape via focussed tech interventions and manages a distribution network of more than 0.4M CKT km with 12M customers across India via its Discoms. It has also reached a milesmetric tone of installing 0.5M smart meters.
