Green Energy

Committed for building a Sustainable Tomorrow

Tata Power–DDL believes in the culture of resource conservation and sustainable development using energy efficient alternatives for consumers and community as a whole. We are suitably placed to play an important role in promoting renewable energy in the country and have taken many steps towards Green Energy adoption, promoting Solar Power and EV infrastructure deployment in Delhi.

We are committed to the sustainability goals and are working continuously towards reducing our carbon footprints through RPOs and various clean energy initiatives.

  • Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)
  • Green Power Supply
  • Zero Emission - SF6 Handling
  • Zero Waste to Landfill (Lubricant Oils)
  • Carbon Footprint (CO2) Reduction
  • Electric Vehicle and Charging Infrastructure
  • Solar PV Rooftop Penetration

Green Energy Adoption

The peak demand for Tata Power DDL for FY 20-21 was 2547 MW, with renewable energy share of energy mix at 13.3%. The renewable energy come from various sources like Solar, Wind, Small Hydro Plants and Waste to Energy. The Power Mix has been continuously evolving for Tata Power-DDL, where the contribution of Renewable energy is being kept on increasing trend. In addition to this, the energy mix comprises of Large Hydro Plant at 8.1% of total 2547 MW peak demand.

Solar PV Rooftop Penetration

Solar energy is a renewable, free, widely available and clean form of energy. The large magnitude of solar energy falling on the earth makes it an attractive source of electricity. In 2016, Tata Power-DDL became the first and only power utility to be awarded by Ministry of New & Renewable Energy, Govt. of India with National Award for “Utility Enabler for Rooftop Solar Project”. We have installed 14 Rooftop Solar Plants on our buildings having a capacity of 1.65 MWp with total of 2.01 MUs solar power generation annually. Tata Power-DDL in association with GIZ, World Bank, E&Y, CEEW, U.S.-India Clean Energy Finance Task Force, and International Solar Alliance etc. has been actively publicizing solar power amongst its customers, Resident & Industrial Welfare Associations for its adoption.

A total of 1283 cases of solar net meters have been installed till FY 2020-21 with a grid connected capacity of 40.8 MWp. The trend has been on the growth path since the adoption of solar policy in 2015 and Tata Power-DDL has played a lead role in facilitating net meter to its customers.

Electric Vehicle Facilitation

As we set out towards a ‘greener environment’ and government acting sternly towards achieving the targets, the emergence of electrically powered vehicles are more evident than ever before. The Electric Vehicles (EVs) policy by the Delhi Government aimed at boosting the adoption of cleaner vehicles in the national capital. The policy was crafted recognizing EV adoption requires favorable incentives and subsidies to kick-start the adoption of electric vehicles in Delhi. The three-year policy is aimed at bringing 25% of vehicle registration to account from EVs. The policy adequately incentives and addresses all concerned stakeholders to ensure that the incentives are available to all – customers, EV charge point operators, including battery swapping service providers, and opens opportunities for those serving battery recycling ecosystem.

To meet with Delhi’s ambitious plans to switch to electric Vehicles, Tata Power-DDL has been making efforts to develop necessary infrastructure to meet the upcoming demand in form of Public Charging stations, Home Charging Infrastructure deployment and Battery Swapping stations. Battery operated E-Rickshaws/3-Wheelers are easily accessible for transportation and are used by public at large. Tata Power-DDL has established two Battery Swapping Stations in collaboration with OEMs within its licensed area to promote Electric Vehicle usage and enhancing green mode of transportation. Additionally, 800 Electric Vehicle category electricity connections have been facilitated.
