n the recent years, India’s energy consumption has been increasing at a rapid rate in the world due to the increasing population of the country and its economic development. Driven by the rising population, expanding economy, and a quest for improved quality of life, the total primary energy consumption is expected to reach 412 MTOE and 554 MTOE in the terminal years of the Tenth and Eleventh Plans, respectively. Increasing pressure of population and increasing use of energy in different sectors of the economy is an area of concern for India. Hence, SunCraft Energy, a complete renewable energy business solution, started their operation in the year of 2011, with the similar concern and the motive to improve the quality of life the people. Rabin Roy, Founder, SunCraft Energy, who has 12 years of experience in power and renewable energy sector, says, “The primary motive behind establishing SunCraft was to become a technology and knowledge based organization offering solutions which are sustainable and at the same time futuristic.”
SunCraft, headquartered in Kolkata, during its initial years of establishment found difficulty in penetrating and competing with big firms with limited infrastructural resources. How ever, with the sole dedication of their team in designing solutions, offering convincing value propositions to clients and making strong professional relationships with them have enabled SunCraft to become one of the most respected companies in eastern India in this domain. They understood that renewable energy, particularly solar energy, was relatively a new idea in the Indian market as a business proposition.
They settled the doubts of their customers with limited facts and figures available in the context of solar energy. Today SunCraft with its extraordinary team carries out feasibility studies in the area of solar and wind energy, prepares detailed project reports and provides complete project management solution through their advisory team.
“SunCraft collectively has 200 years of experience in developing financial solutions, engineering know-how in power sector especially in solar energy”
“We at Suncraft Energy have an EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) business wing which is mainly focused on rooftop solar power plants. We have installed more than 1000 kWp solar plants in various parts of India. We collectively have 200 years of experience in developing financial solutions, engineering know-how in power sector especially in solar energy, general and project management expertise and renewable energy project execution experience. Currently we have entered into RESCO ( Renewable Energy Service Company, where we have started selling power instead of equipments”, adds Rabin.
SunCraft, over the five years have grown from a few lakhs to a multicrore business. With the experience of providing more than 30 MWp solar energy advisory solutions to PSUs, they have successfully joined hands with leading clients, like, CES for NALCO, WBPDCL, WBSEDCL, TERI, UBI, SBI, WWF, to name a few. “We at SunCraft are heading with the vision to be the most respected technology solution company globally. We are further working with academic institutions to develop power electronics solutions in power sector that are technologically superior and also sustainable. We are vertically integrated in its value chain starting from consulting to manufacturing to execution two owning of projects which in itself is unique among the players in this domain”, concludes Rabin.
