New Delhi [India], Nov 15 (ANI): The recently launched National Power Portal (NPP) has been designated to function as a single point interface for all apps launched for the power sector previously by the Ministry.

The portal, which was launched by MoS Power, New and Renewable Energy (Independent Charge) R.K. Singh on Tuesday, is a centralised system for the Indian power sector to facilitate online data capture/ input (daily, monthly, annually) from generation, transmission and distribution utilities in the country and disseminate power sector information (operational, capacity, demand, supply, consumption) through various analysed reports, graphs, statistics for generation, transmission and distribution at all India, region, state level for central, state and private sector.

The NPP Dashboard has been designed and developed to disseminate analysed information about the sector through GIS enabled navigation and visualisation chart windows on capacity, generation, transmission, distribution at national, state, DISCOM, town, feeder level and scheme based funding to states. The system also facilitates various types of statutory reports required to be published regularly.

NPP is integrated with associated systems of Central Electricity Authority (CEA), Power Finance Corporation (PFC), Rural Electrification Corporation (REC) and other major utilities and would serve as single authentic source of power sector information to apex bodies, utilities for the purpose of analysis, planning, monitoring as well as for public users.

The system is available 24x7 and ensures effective and timely collection of data. It standardised data parameters and formats for seamless exchange of data between NPP and respective systems at utilities. (ANI)
