Power Finance Corporation Ltd (PFC), India’s leading financial institution in the power sector, is pleased to announce a strategic collaboration with New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), Japan’s pioneering agency for promoting environmental, energy andindustrial technology innovation.
Together, PFC & NEDO aim to disseminate the outcome of the demonstration project on “Micro Sub-station with Power Voltage Transformer”. This project is aimed at realizing environment friendly power supply in the areas with undeveloped distribution network, which is being implemented between Nissin Electric Company Limited (NISSIN) and Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL).
