Tata Power is India's largest integrated power company. It generates 14,464 MW, with 39% coming from clean energy sources. In this session, speakers from Tata Power will discuss their first-hand experiences in technology deployment, challenges faced and DERMS adoption for effective management of its large number of DER installations, including selection of IoT solutions. The utility’s EV charging network includes 48,000 charging points in 350 cities, 1650 MW of installed rooftop solar energy, 60,000 solar pumps and 194 microgrids deployed in rural areas. In addition, Tata Power installed India's first 10 MW grid-connected battery storage system, and delivers power to more than 40,000 home automation solutions and adopted green switchgears. It has also implemented demand response programs in Delhi and Mumbai for peak load curtailment. The large number of DER implementations mentioned here, make Tata power frontrunner in India as well as one of the global leaders when it comes to new DER-related technology development and adoption. The discussion will include new technology development for distributed EV charging infrastructure monitoring, and the deployment of smart meters that empower customers with mobile applications that allow them to monitor consumption and optimize power usage.
