An assessment will be made on the energy storage potential in other smart cities based on the results
Tata Power Delhi Distribution (TPDDL) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the financial arm of the World Bank Group, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to assess the energy storage capacity requirement in TPDDL’s area for ensuring sustainable and reliable power distribution and to strategize energy storage deployment in the electric utilities.
Tata Power-DDL is a joint venture between Tata Power and the Government of Delhi. It distributes electricity in North Delhi and serves a populace of 7 million spread across the capital.
Over the next eight months, the two organizations will jointly conduct a study in South Asia to examine and recommend the optimum energy storage capacity that can be implemented for Tata Power-DDL’s 2,000 MW distribution system. Based on the results, an assessment will be made on the storage potential in other smart cities.
“Today, battery storage has become a crucial part of the electricity grid for the adoption of renewable energy sources and to meet the ever-increasing demand. The association with IFC will help us in leveraging storage optimally and further strengthening our network performance to provide quality power supply to our consumers,” said Sanjay Banga, CEO, TPDDL.
