Siemens and Tata Power-DDL Partner for Smart Metering Technology Deployment

23 Aug 2021 | BY SHARADA PRAHLADRAO, ARC

Siemens Limited and Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (Tata Power-DDL) jointly announced the successful deployment of Smart Metering Technology for over 200,000 Smart Meters in North Delhi. The state-of-the-art EnergyIP Meter Data Management System installed and commissioned by Siemens, enables timely and accurate collection of electricity meter data, leading to increased visibility of the consumer network and reduction in carbon emissions. The Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) program is one of Tata Power-DDL’s key strategic initiatives for the modernization of the grid.

This implementation will help the consumers in real-time consumption monitoring and better energy usage management, while also providing them outage and low Power Factor alerts. It will also enable faster outage management. Siemens’ technologies support Tata Power-DDL to achieve their ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) targets of energy efficiency, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and improved safety for employees and the public. Siemens is also working towards improving safety and reliability in operations for Tata Power-DDL’s critical energy assets. 

Tata Power-DDL opines that this partnership with Siemens has further strengthened the energy distribution network by leveraging digital technologies to monitor critical functions of energy distribution in real-time, resulting in higher operational efficiency and productivity, and has proven invaluable during the pandemic. According to Siemens, the aim of the partnership is to empower customers to overcome their digital transformation and sustainability challenges with state-of-the-art technologies. The implementation of AMI is aligned to the Smart Meter National Program and will play a key role in the deployment of Smart Grids across the country.
