Honey­well, TPDDL de­ploy first-of-its-kind smart grid pro­ject

Power Watch India - - DESPATCHES NATIONAL -

Honey­well and Tata Power Delhi Dis­tri­bu­tion Ltd (TPDDL) have suc­cess­fully im­ple­mented the first-ever au­to­mated de­mand re­sponse (ADR) pro­ject for com­mer­cial and in­dus­trial fa­cil­i­ties in In­dia. TPDDL will use Honey­well tech­nol­ogy and ser­vices to link more than 160 build­ings in its dis­tri­bu­tion net­work and call for tem­po­rary re­duc­tion in energy use when de­mand threat­ens to out­pace sup­ply in grid stress con­di­tions. The pro­ject will give TPDDL the abil­ity to re­duce ap­prox­i­mately 11.5 MW of peak de­mand. If the same tech­nol­ogy were de­ployed in all build­ings in In­dia, elec­tric­ity con­sump­tion could drop an es­ti­mated 10.5 GW, close to 7 per cent of the peak energy cur­rently re­quired na­tion­wide. Praveer Sinha, CEO and ED, TPDDL, said, “This is a sig­nif­i­cant ini­tia­tive — one that sup­ports our mis­sion to build a re­source-ef­fi­cient, en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly elec­tri­cal grid. We are com­mit­ted to mak­ing this de­ploy­ment a suc­cess and find­ing new op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­tend ADR to other cus­tomers, thus play­ing a role in help­ing to meet Delhi’s energy needs. We be­lieve our steps in this di­rec­tion will en­cour­age other In­dian util­i­ties to adopt smart grid tech­nol­ogy for ef­fi­cient oper­a­tions.”
