ESTA is working with BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL) in Delhi for developing a digital technology roadmap and a platform for centralized energy data integration. The US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) is funding this project. It is primarily focused on development of requirements, specifications, and an implementation plan for deployment of a central Energy Data Integration Platform. This platform is expected to have the capability to capture and integrate all energy related data points in a central data hub. This data hub will be used for creation of various other business use cases and applications for increasing flexibility and efficiency for BYPL’s operations.

ESTA has started work on a project to develop a Smart Electricity Distribution Operation Center (SEDOC) roadmap for West Bengal State Electricity Distribution Company (WBSEDCL) which has 20 million customers. It is funded by the World Bank Group. The focus is an integration strategy for Smart Applications within WBSEDCL.
