Mr. Sanjeev Churiwala
Chief Financial Officer

Transmission and Distribution is pivot to the country's growth. The growing power demand in the country necessitates the Transmission and Distribution sector to develop hand in hand along with the generation sector. T&D sector represents the core competency of Tata Power and the company has been a pioneer in this area and is now the biggest private distribution company in the country serving more than 12 Mn consumers across various states.

The sector is now getting very exciting with various steps being taken by the government to revitalise the sector. The recent spate of announcements on privatisation of the distribution companies and on opening the transmission space for private players have paved a path for the transformation journey of the sector which will ultimately benefit the end consumers. With the ambitious target of Government of India in Renewable Energy space, Transmission and Distribution will also play a key role in bringing this power to the ultimate consumer. Tata Power with its expertise and vast experience in this space will surely evolve as a key player in this sector.

Mr. Tarun Katiyar
Chief Business Development (Transmission & Distribution)

Globally T&D segment of the power sector is witnessing large scale changes. The Indian Power Sector has also recently received further impetus with privatisation of power distribution on Public Private Partnership model for turnaround of ailing electricity utilities. In addition, technological innovations such as smart meters are driving systematic energy management and helping utility companies in making intelligent decisions. Keeping in pace with the current scenario, TATA Power's focus will be on Decarbonisation, Digitization and Decentralization.

The evolving utility landscape with new and advanced technologies such as the smart grid will enhance the stability and reliability of power systems. The monitoring on power losses, better consumption monitoring and efficient management of distributed energy resources like micro grids, battery energy storage systems etc. are the most important advantages of smart grid. Tata Power has been a forerunner in adoption of these smart grid technologies in their area of operation in Delhi and Mumbai.

As, TATA Power is India's largest integrated power company with its legacy of 100 years in technology leadership, project execution excellence, world-class safety processes, customer care and driving green initiatives, TATA Power is poised for multi-fold growth and committed to 'lighting up lives' for generations to come.
