Honeywell, TPDDL deploy smart grid

Honeywell and Tata Power Delhi Distribution (TPDDL) have implemented the first ever automated demand response (ADR) project for industrial facilities in India. TPDDL will use Honeywell technology and services to link more than 160 buildings in its network, and call for temporary reductions in energy use when demand threatens to outpace supply.

Given the gap between the power required in India, and what utilities can produce, many cities across the country face blackouts. The project will give TPDDL the ability to reduce 11.5MW of demand. However, if the same technology were deployed in all buildings in India, electricity consumption could drop to 10.5GW, close to 7% of the peak energy currently required nationwide.

“This is a significant initiative — one that supports our mission to build a resource-efficient, environmentally friendly electrical grid,” said Praveer Sinha, CEO & ED of TPDDL. Honeywell and TPDDL worked with the building owners to identify and implement changes to help trim consumption.
