< 1 Minute Read

The delegates of ERA – Electricity Regulatory Authority, Uganda attended a Capacity Building Program organized by TATA Power-DDL Learning Centre, CENPEID from 8th April- 17th April 2019.

During the program, the delegates deliberated on developing the performance matrices for Ugandan Utilities and building a future roadmap for effective and efficient power distribution.

The program also covered site visits to Tata Power-DDL’s Technology Centre, Smart Grid and Meter Management Labs.

The Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERA) is an apex government agency that regulates the power sector in Uganda, the third-largest economy in the East African Community.

TATA Power-DDL is helping several other African Nations to ramp up their electricity distribution systems through consultancy services in management and technical service assistance, electrification roadmap, distribution losses and network reliability.

Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (Tata Power-DDL) is a joint venture between Tata Power and the Government of NCT of Delhi with the majority stake being held by Tata Power Company (51%). Tata Power-DDL distributes electricity in North & North West parts of Delhi and serves a populace of 7 million. The company started operations on July 1, 2002 post the unbundling of the erstwhile Delhi Vidyut Board (DVB). With a registered consumer base of 1.8 million and a peak load of around 2106 MW, the company's operations span across an area of 510 sq. kms. Tata Power-DDL has been the front-runner in implementing power distribution reforms in the capital city and is acknowledged for its consumer friendly practices. Since privatization, the Aggregate Technical & Commercial (AT&C) losses in Tata Power-DDL areas have shown a record decline. AT&C loss is a measure of overall efficiency of the distribution business which is the difference between units input into the system and the units for which the payment is collected. Today, AT&C losses stand at 7.3 % which is an unprecedented reduction of around 84% from an opening loss level of 53% in July 2002.
