CHALLENGE

India’s electricity sector is estimated to be the world’s fourth largest, in terms of installed capacity, yet there is a large, unmet demand for electricity across the country. People, especially in rural and semi-urban areas continue to rely on traditional means of lighting their homes; children continue to study by the light of the kerosene lamp. While government efforts are expected to increase grid connectivity, progress has been slow and the number of under served households is expected to decline by only 5% over the next 10 years.

The challenge is to provide cheap, reliable and self sustainable energy generation techniques to remote hamlets in rural India.
