Delhi discom deploys digital data platform for solar energy management


BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL), a power distribution company in Delhi, has deployed a digital data platform to manage distributed renewable energy generation and distribution in Delhi efficiently. The digital data platform pilot was launched today by the Danish ambassador to India, Freddy Svane. 

The digital solution was developed by Columbus, a Denmark-headquartered IT services and consulting company, in partnership with BYPL.

A major issue with solar power is storage and efficient management. As the energy generation is not continuous, there is a challenge to store, predict both generation and usage, and efficiently manage the distribution. 

The digital data solution by Columbus will efficiently predict the solar energy generation and demand and help the utility plan for storing the excess energy by considering the distribution congestion and commercial aspects.

The digital data platform is funded by Nordic Innovation, an organization floated by Nordic countries to promote innovation-based projects. The funding support was channelized through the Danish Embassy to optimize the storage and distribution of alternative energy sources.

The digital solution combines artificial intelligence (AI) and data science techniques to predict the energy demand at consumption points like electric vehicle charging stations and energy generation capacity at solar rooftops. It constantly assesses the optimal energy storage requirements and makes informed decisions on when to discharge and consume energy from the power grid. Real-time dashboard and automations allow efficient management and monitoring of the energy distribution.
