Tata Power had its inception in 1915, establishing India's first large hydro-electric project in Khopoli, Maharashtra and driven by its late founder, Shri Jamshetji N. Tata's pioneering vision. Today, a hundred years later, Tata Power is a respected name; it is a global company with presence across continents and is a dedicated resource to the country, providing 'Invisible Goodness' to the nation. A goodness that although invisible, is crucial.
Tata Power is India's largest integrated power company with significant international presence. From Fuel and Logistics to Generation and Transmission to Distribution and Trading - exploring various renewable sources of energy in India and globally – Tata Power now has a significant presence in wind, solar, hydro and geothermal energy space.
The Company's technology leadership is legendary and it has demonstrated successful public-private partnerships in Generation, Transmission and Distribution, a few being, Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited with Delhi Vidyut Board for distribution in North Delhi, Powerlinks Transmission Ltd. with Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd. for evacuation of power from Tala hydro plant in Bhutan to Delhi and Maithon Power Ltd. with Damodar Valley Corporation for a Mega Power Project in Jharkhand.
Today, 100 years since, the Company is poised for multi-fold growth. Tata Power today is one of the largest renewable energy players in India and it has developed the country's first 4000 MW Ultra Mega Power Project at Mundra in Gujarat, based on super-critical technology. The Company's international presence includes strategic investments in Indonesia through 30% stake in coal mines and a geothermal project; in Singapore through Trust Energy Resources to securitise coal supply and the shipping of coal for its thermal power generation operations; in South Africa through a joint venture called 'Cennergi' to develop projects in South Africa, Botswana and Namibia; in Australia through investments in enhanced geothermal and clean coal technologies and in Bhutan through a hydro project in partnership with The Royal Government of Bhutan.
Dedicating the Company's 100 years of 'Invisible Goodness' to the nation, and in line with its nationalistic spirit, the Company also dedicated the Tata Power Skill Development Institute (TPSDI) for the development of the country.
While it has ambitious growth plans, it remains committed to 'responsible growth'. From focusing on producing clean and green power to investing and implementing eco-friendly technologies; reducing our carbon footprint to joining global initiatives to combat climate change; scouting for clean power sources internationally to driving energy conservation and efficiency; creating sustainable livelihood for communities to green buildings and villages; Tata Power is putting its best foot forward in its attempts to carry forward its green legacy.
The Company is excited to redefine the contours of the Indian 'Power' Sector and is committed to 'lighting up lives' for generations to come, and continue its dedication to providing 'Invisible Goodness' to the country.
