Learning Centres & Infrastructure

Tata Power-DDL has laid great emphasis on the training & skill development of its employees since its inception in 2002, when its training institute, Human Resource Development Institute (HRDI) became operational. Later, in January 2005, Tata Power-DDL established its state-of-the-art Centre for Power Efficiency in Distribution (CENPEID) (now Tata Power-DDL Learning Centre) in association with USAID to cater to the training needs of its own employees as well as other utilities. The centre provides trainings focused on upskilling the staff of various State Utilities with Tata Power-DDL’s transformation and coaches them on adapting changes and tackling commercial & operational functional challenges in their distribution operations.
