< 1 Minute Read

Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (Tata Power-DDL), the pioneer in power distribution in India with a consumer base of 7 million people in Delhi was honoured at the 3rd Edition of CII National Energy Efficiency Circle Competition, held at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. The platform recognizes the organizations that have made outstanding contributions in the area of Energy Efficiency and Demand Side Management.

Tata Power-DDL won the “Innovative Financing & ESCO Model Award 2019” which was presented by Dr. Rane Van Berkel, representative of United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) to company officials. The award bears testimony to the efforts put in towards the implementation of Innovative Financial and ESCO Model by organizations across various industries.

The benefits of Innovative Financing & ESCO Model Award are low power consumption, savings in electricity bill and longer warranty period for the products. This also helps Tata Power-DDL to optimize the peak load consumption and reduce Greenhouse Gases and Carbon Foot Print.

Commenting on the recognition, Mr. Sanjay Banga, CEO, Tata Power-DDL, said, “Tata Power-DDL is privileged to receive this prestigious honour. We are delighted to be recognised by CII, the foremost industry association for our efforts put in towards the implementation of Innovative Financial and ESCO Model and we will keep contributing in the area of Energy Efficiency and Demand Side Management in the future.”    

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.
