Experiencing Power Cuts? – Switch to Solar Inverters

Solar energy is one of the most reliable and robust sources of renewable energy available to mankind today. Countries around the world are banking on solar based energy solutions, not only to meet rising energy demands but also to combat climate change and arrest environmental degradation. This global increase in demand for solar energy has given rise to the demand for all key components for setting up a solar plant. The most apparent component of any solar plant is the solar PV modules which harness the sunlight to produce solar energy. However, the electricity generated is not readily usable and…

Beat the Pollution Crises, Switch to Solar Energy

The pollution crisis has been consistent in India for many ages. While many countries have faced the challenges of pollution, no other country is battling the scale and austerity of the pollution that covers India. Air pollution has been on the rise in New Delhi and its surrounding areas. This pollution poses grave and multi-faceted risks to India’s prospects of achieving its sustainable development goals. The health expenditure also increases rapidly with the rise in pollution. Current Challenges of the Pollution Crisis Climate Change No one is far from the harsh reality of the climatic changes taking place these years….

Bridging the Skills Gap by investing in Skills Development in the Renewable Energy Sector

The shifting towards renewable energy given the serious climate change issues that surround the use of fossil fuels. This transition to a greener economy requires action on different facets like energy-efficiency, preservation of natural resources and bio-diversity. This has a direct impact on some of the key global challenges that the world faces, such as poverty alleviation, climate change, and global environmental and food security. The sun is the most abundantly available energy source in the world. Over the years, technological advancements have made solar power one of the most reliable and affordable sources of renewable energy technology, so much…

Silent Gensets/Silent Generators: The Silent Heroes During Emergencies

Critical Power during Healthcare Emergencies Medical science has advanced by leaps and bounds, and we now have access to excellent life-saving machines and well-equipped healthcare facilities if the need may arise. Hospitals act as our life support systems during times of crises as well as for general healthcare needs.  However, one critical machine behind all these machines that acts as a backbone and often goes unnoticed is a generator. In situations of power outage, vital power is imperative to keep life support machines and other critical tools running to sustain human life and this is where generators jump into the…

How Solar Industry can contribute to India’s economic growth

India is fast moving towards a clean energy mix to support its consumer power requirements. It is the world’s third largest producer and fourth largest consumer of electricity in the world as of August 2018. Going solar is a decision that has enormous importance in today’s world of climate change and uncertainty of rising energy costs. There are signals that significant investments and supportive stance from the government have started to pay off. The falling costs of the renewables are making these alternative sources more viable to explore. In fact new solar and wind backed energy sources are now 20%…

Energy conservation with efficient LED lighting solutions

LED lights

Lighting accounts for about 20 percent of the total energy usage worldwide, approximately 1,944 terawatt hours. Because lighting is relatively simple to upgrade, the trend in recent years is to switch to LEDs. Doing so greatly improves energy efficiency, mitigating impacts of global warming and reducing energy dependence. What is an LED light? A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source that emits light when current flows through it. Appearing as practical electronic components in 1962, the earliest LEDs emitted low-intensity infrared light mainly used in remote-control circuits. The first visible-light LEDs were of low intensity and limited to…

Rural Electrification in India – Achievements, Challenges and Opportunities

rural electrification in india

April 28, 2018 will remain etched in India’s history for a landmark achievement. Almost 72 years after achieving independence from colonial rule, the country achieved another historic moment – that of energy independence – with every village in the country getting electrified. The Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi announced this remarkable accomplishment using his official twitter handle, shortly after the last un-electrified village in the country located in a remote corner of the Indian state of Manipur was officially connected to the electricity grid. It is by no means a simple feat for a country that just…
