< 1 Minute Read

Tata Power-DDL has signed an MoU with Bangalore Electricity Supply Company Ltd. (BESCOM) for Building Organizational Capabilities.
Under the MoU, Tata Power-DDL will facilitate training programs on various need based themes including Battery Storage, EV Charging, Renewables, Distributed Energy Resources and Smart Grids etc. 

BESCOM will be sending 100 officials at Tata Power-DDL’s state of the art learning centre (CENPEID) for training over the next two years. Besides this the two companies will also collaborate on research projects.

As BESCOM is planning to implement latest technologies in its distribution system to provide reliable and quality power to its consumers at an affordable cost, therefore, this association with Tata Power-DDL will help them to improve their service, maintain high customer satisfaction, meet the needs of their consumers and stay in the race with the latest developments and technology.

The MoU signing ceremony was done in the presence of Additional Chief Secretary to Govt. of Karnataka, Mr Mahendra Jain, IAS&MD- BESCOM, Ms. Shikha, IAS and Senior Officials of both the companies. Other areas of cooperation were also discussed.

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.
