IBM and Tata Power Delhi Distribution, a joint venture between utility Tata Power and the Delhi Government, will collaborate to develop an advanced metering infrastructure and demand response pilot program across the northern and northwestern part of Delhi, India.

According to IBM, the company will support Tata Power Delhi Distribution to create system architecture, ensure adherence to international smart grid standards, optimize business processes and incorporate business analytics functions to offer actionable insights.

IBM says the project will also provide customer service improvements, including new digital meters, enhanced self-service options and access to a customer portal to manage energy use. IBM notes that the collaboration will help over 1.3 million electric consumers manage their energy use.

In addition, Tata Power Delhi Distribution will leverage IBM to integrate new advanced metering, meter data management and demand response systems with existing applications, including customer and geographic information systems, the company says.

IBM adds that this engagement is the first step in creating an end-to-end intelligent utility system to manage generation shortfall by peak shaving.
