What Happened? As part of the partnership, the power generation giant implemented two key pilot projects through Tata Power's Delhi-based distribution business.
Under the partnership, Tata Power's distribution arm, Tata Power Delhi Distribution (TPDDL), will work closely with Enel Group affiliate company, Gridspertise, on project implementation, the organisations added in a joint statement.
