India: BYPL Energy Integration Roadmap

The Grantee invites submission of qualifications and proposal data (collectively referred to as the “Proposal”) from interested U.S. firms that are qualified on the basis of experience and capability to execute technical assistance to develop a digital technology roadmap and a platform for centralized energy data integration to enhance the overall efficiency of the data handling process for the Grantee in its service area in Delhi, India. The Proposal submission deadline is 5:00 PM IST (6:30 AM EST) on December 22, 2021. The U.S. firm selected will be paid in U.S. dollars from a $737,104 grant to the Grantee from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency.

About the Grantee

The Grantee, BSES Yamuna Power Limited (“BYPL”), is one of the three major distribution companies that cover the National Capital Region (NCR) in Delhi, India. The utility was created from the privatization of Delhi’s electricity distribution system in 2002 and is partially state-owned through Delhi Power Company Limited. BYPL currently distributes power to over 1.7 million consumers in one of the most rapidly growing and densely populated sections of Delhi.

Project Background

To keep up with continuously increasing power demand and the Government of India’s mandates regarding clean and efficient energy, BYPL has been adopting new technologies in the field of Distributed Energy Resources, such as smart meters and small-scale storage systems. However, the increasing complexity of BYPL’s operations have led to a heavily congested network and variable load conditions. BYPL’s customer base has also indicated changing priorities for reliability of and access to information. Therefore, with the introduction of these new systems and continuing growth, a higher magnitude of data has been flowing to BYPL’s servers, making optimal data integration an urgent requirement. At the same time, BYPL also seeks to optimize their power distribution network to eliminate bottlenecks and improve reliability.

The implementation of an energy data integration platform will allow all data points from BYPL’s various systems to be captured in a centralized data hub. This data hub would be used to identify optimal use cases, pinpoint losses, and enhance flexibility in order to increase BYPL’s operational efficiency. The goal of an enterprise-level solution would be to enable advanced data analytics by integrating all of BYPL’s current standalone data sources.

About the Technical Assistance

In order to implement the Project, BYPL requested USTDA funding to prepare a roadmap for the design and implementation of an enterprise-level data integration solution for the utility. The solution would be designed to integrate with BYPL’s current database system along with existing operational applications. The TA would help determine the most suitable implementation solutions with capable partners, as well as develop and validate cost estimates for implementation.
