IBM and Tata Power Delhi Distribution tie up to deploy Smart Grid in India

3rd October 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

ibm-logoNew Delhi, India, October 3, 2013: IBM today announced that it has been selected by Tata Power Delhi Distribution to conceptualize, design and deliver Smart Grid solution that will  collect and analyze real-time information from smart meters and data from the communication and management infrastructure.

This will enable Tata Power Delhi Distribution to better manage energy output and further reduce outages.

As a joint venture between Tata Power and the Delhi Government, Tata Power Delhi Distribution sought a solution that would enhance the reliability and efficiency of energy distribution across the Northern and North western part of Delhi. Additionally, the solution would also help empower its over 1.3 million electric consumers to manage their own energy usage.

In India, aggregated technical and commercial losses that occur due to electricity transmission and energy theft are estimated at about 26.4 per cent on a national average. The Government of India has launched the Restructured-Accelerated Power Development and Reforms Program (R-APDRP) with the aim to reduce these losses in the country and to improve the power distribution sector of state utilities, during 11th Five-Year Plan period, 2007-2012. The Five-Year Plans are centralized and integrated national economic programs.

As a part of its smart grid initiative, Tata Power Delhi Distribution will collaborate with IBM to develop an advanced metering infrastructure and demand response pilot program that will automate and regulate supply of electricity to consumers in sync with the fluctuating demand.

This project will help add a layer of digital intelligence to the grid and ensure reliability when the demand rises exponentially and the supply falls due to heavy consumption. In addition, this will provide customer service improvements including new digital meters, enhanced self-service options and access to a customer portal to manage energy use.

Rahul Sharma, Executive Director and Partner, Global Business Services, IBM India & South Asia, said, “In the near future, utilities will look to integrate insights into their traditional grid operation solutions and also into customer, energy management and environmental domains. The advanced meter management solution builds real-time intelligence into the system, integrating information into business and operations systems quickly and easily.”

IBM will support Tata Power Delhi Distribution to create system architecture, ensure adherence to international smart grid standards, optimize business process and incorporate dynamic business analytics function to offer actionable insights. In addition, Tata Power Delhi Distribution will leverage IBM expertise to integrate new advanced metering, meter data management, and demand response systems with existing applications including customer and geographic information systems.

IBM is involved in more than 150 Smart Grid engagements in mature and emerging markets.
