ndia is facing an acute energy scarcity which is hampering its industrial growth and economic progress. It is a fact that India is heavily dependent on fossil fuels for its energy needs. Most of the power generation is carried out by coal and mineral oil-based power plants which contribute heavily to greenhouse gases emission. Thus, it is essential to tackle the energy crisis through judicious utilization of abundant renewable energy resources. Solar Energy is one such clean renewable resource with zero emission of hazardous gasses. It has got tremendous potential of energy which can be utilized to harness using a variety of devices. Moreover, India because of its location between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator has an average annual temperature that ranges from 25°C –27.5 °C, which indicates that it has a tremendous solar potential. Taking this abundance availability of solar potential in India as an opportunity Amit Bansal and Mudit Garg founded Vivaan Solar in the year 2012.
The Unique Approach
Though establishing a unique venture like Vivaan was not an easy task, yet with its experienced professional team they were able to conquer a huge number of projects in various parts of the country. Amit Bansal, Founding Partner, Vivaan Solar, proudly avers, “We successfully commissioned 3MW and 12 MW Solar Power plant in Ujjain in May 2013 and 2014 respectively. We were proud to be one of the few companies in India which empanelled solar rooftop project in Uttarakhand in December 2014. Moreover, in February 2015 we installed our first ever 15KW rooftop project in Mathura with Japanese CIS Frontier Technology.”
“The concept of growing Jatropha for creating alternate source of energy from waste land is a testimonial of Vivaan’s innovative thinking”
