Keywords:IBM  Tata Power  smart grid 

IBM has partnered with Tata Power Delhi Distribution under which it will develop advanced smart grid solution that will collect and analyse real-time information from smart meters and data from the communication and management infrastructure.

Under the partnership, IBM will develop an advanced metering infrastructure and demand response pilot programme 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.

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 IBM to manage their own energy usage.

"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," said Rahul Sharma, Executive Director and Partner, Global Business Services, IBM India & South Asia. "The advanced meter management solution builds real-time intelligence into the system, integrating information into business and operations systems quickly and easily."

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