Solar and wind technologies have widescale application around the world but have the handicap of not being a continuous power source. Solar produces energy during the day and has to be coupled with a storage option to serve 24X7.  So, there is a need for cheaper and larger options for storing this power and that is the key to increasing the share of renewable energy in the process of electricity production. This will gradually allow the decommission of fossil fuel-based power...

Renewable energy like solar power has become a vast market. The PV systems, in particular, are being used globally to help meet power requirements in a sustainable manner.  Germany was one of the forerunners for taking substantial steps in shifting to clean energy since the 1990s. This conversion is referred to as ‘Energiewende.’ The success of this initiative is a key reason why the Germans have incorporated the numerous benefits of renewable energy. Solar power forms around 6.9% percent of...

Experts are speculating that using existing technologies, can potentially help the world convert completely to renewable power by mid-century and it will not be more expensive than what is currently being spent on energy. Developing countries are playing an active role in the gradual shift of the world to renewable energy.  India is becoming a great motivator and leader in this conversion. According to the Draft National Electricity Plan, fifty percent of India’s energy requirements will come from renewable sources...

It all started at ISB in our Competitive Strategy Class Professor Aks has left us with a thought that “platforms will replace pipelines” and it stuck with me and I kept invested in that thought and started reading few articles and a book “The Matchmakers”.  It made me realize that my industry-Solar EPC, will also will be disrupted by a platform in the near future. Then I started to discuss the idea of building a cleantech platform with my colleagues...
