•  Tata Power has also launched   Thermal energy storage   and   Demand response programmes   which supports peak load shifting.   Under its unique Thermal energy storage scheme 10,000 TR-hours are enrolled in the programme. In Demand response scheme, 40 industrial and commercial customers are already participating and 12 MW of curtailable capacity has been developed. Tata Power is targeting total of 25 MW curtaible capacity under this programme.   Both programmes are lauded at national level. Recently, these programmes have received a national award by CII as "Most energy efficient Service- 2012".


•  Refrigerators   work for 24 hours and contribute 25 to 30 % of residential energy consumption. Tata Power will launch a programme for residential consumers where the most efficient refrigerators shall be offered at large discount so that the customers would be able to replace their old energy guzzling refrigerators.


•  Air conditioning   is the largest contributor in the electricity bill of industrial and commercial consumers. To help these consumers, Tata Power shall roll out the second phase of this programme by Diwali, to offer 5 Star air conditioners at subsidized rates.

Speaking on this initiative, Mr. S. Padmanabhan, Executive Director – Operations, Tata Power, said   " 'My Mumbai, Green Mumbai!'   Initiative is a successful energy efficiency drive from Tata Power and we are happy to offer several innovative and attractive DSM schemes for all our customer segments. We are confident that our demand side efforts will not only help our customers to significantly reduce their monthly bills but enable them to make Mumbai a greener city."

To implement the above DSM initiatives, Tata Power has carried out extensive load research which involved studying the consumer behaviour, load variation patterns and determining peak load contributors by gathering information on various high energy consuming equipments used by consumers. Based on this load research conducted, Tata Power has designed specific DSM programs and classified them according to the various consumer segments i.e. Residential, Commercial and Industrial.

Future of DSM Programs:
DSM Programs are gaining wide spread momentum, more so due to its tremendous potential to save energy costs to the consumer. DSM programs, typically Demand Response is an integral part of SMART Grid solutions and thus is being adopted across the world over. Tata Power is one of the earliest utilities in India to have embraced DSM programs in a wide spread manner.

Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) has decided to install all time payment (ATP) machines in several cities of the state to enable power consumers to pay bill round the clock. These machines will be installed by private operators, who will get transaction charges per bill. The biggest problem with this project is lack of volume. A few years ago, two machines were installed in Congress Nagar division. However, they closed down due to lack of adequate response. If an operator has to generate profit from a machine then minimum 6,000 bills must be paid through this machine. Torrent Power is however successfully running such machines in Bhiwandi.

An MSEDCL official said that even though many people had started paying online, the number of people wishing to pay bills after office hours was increasing. "All of them do not have net connections. Some are wary of using credit or debit cards for paying bills. So we expect good response to this venture. Moreover, earlier there were problems with integration with MSEDCL software. This time there will be no such problems." The official added that MSEDCL has however given priority to operators whose machines have facility to collect bills through swapping of credit and debit cards.

The tender was placed for 168 ATP machines and in January all revenue headquarters and big cities are expected to be covered. The official said that the machine will be like an ATM with instructions displayed on the screen in English. "The operator will deploy his staff to assist people in paying the bills. The machine will collect bills through cash, cheque and demand draft (DD) and generate a printed receipt. It will also generate data backup and necessary management information system (MIS) as per MSEDCL's requirement." The final location of the ATP machine will be jointly decided by zonal chief engineer and bidders keeping in mind the target customers for this payment mode. However, the cities where the project will be implemented have been more or less finalized.

Mumbai, Feb 13, 2015:

- Commercial & Industrial Power Consumers to be Benefitted in First Stage; Rest to be Followed Later

- Consumers Empowered to Bring In Energy Efficiency

- RInfra is the First Indian Utility to Successfully Complete the Pilot Project Under the Aegis of Ustda

- The ADSM will Reduce Power Purchase for RInfra

- Control on Power Consumption through ADSM will Ensure Reduction in Carbon Footprints for Consumers

- RInfra to Seek Approval of MERC to Extend ADSM Programme to more Consumers

In line with its commitment to bring in advanced technology for benefits of Mumbaikars, Reliance Energy (Distribution arm of Reliance Infrastructure Ltd) and Innovari, a US based firm, signed an MoU on expanding the Automated Demand Side Management (ADSM) during President Obama’s visit to India.

Mr A Sethuraman, Group President, Corporate Affairs, Reliance Group; Mr. R. R. Mehta, CEO, Reliance Energy, and Mr. Chris Hichman, Innovari CEO, signed the MoU.

While commenting on the development, Mr A Sethuraman said, “This further extends the existing strong business relationship between Reliance Group and companies from United States such as Caterpillar, Bucyrus, Atlas Copco, Forst Solar etc in areas of Solar Power, Power generation equipments, LNG imports, Coal Mining and Entertainment”.

In 2014, RInfra partnered with Innovari to implement a pilot project in Mumbai to validate the customer and grid benefits of the ADSM. The pilot concluded successfully proving the ability to auto-manage demand without impacting the customer’s environment and also providing savings. The participants of pilot programme are Raghuleela Mall, ITC, Blue Dart, and Marriot.

On the occasion of MoU signing, USTDA Director Leocadia I. Zak complimented both Reliance Energy and Innovari for implementing the pilot in record time.

ADSM is a win-win situation for both utilities; customers as well as the environment; as it helps the utilities to improve the system utilization by reducing its peak demand and it allows the customers to curb their power consumption during peak hours; thereby leading to reduction in their monthly electricity bills and restricting carbon emission going in the air; thus, reducing carbon footprints.

“We are pleased to continue our efforts with Innovari in order to better serve our customers in Mumbai,” said R. R. Mehta, Reliance Energy CEO. He further added, “With Innovari’s platform, we are able to work directly with our commercial and industrial customers to become partners in creating a truly optimized power grid while realizing significant savings and improved electrical performance.”
