We were excited to receive an award and recognition as “50 Most Influential Solar Leaders – 2015” by Thought Leaders International , an NGO focusing on green and sustainable initiatives.
In this hot Solar energy sector in the country, frankly I was somewhat surprised when we got a call from the organizers. Being at the event, made me realize that they had carefully selected people who are doing things a little “hat ke” (differently). There were a few other companies trying to take a more scalable, e-commercy approach to distributed solar. I also got to meet many companies looking at specific application in small solar thermal devices. Barring, Vineet Mittal (MD, Welspun Renewables) and Waaree- most awardees were not from the standard MW/ Developer part of the spectrum – which frankly made for some interesting networking 😉
I also presented our thought process on the role of financing in rooftop solar – which in our opinion is the only thing holding back the sector at the moment (hence our core area of focus).
