In the vast energy sector, electricity constitute a small fraction. Even in this small area, renewable energy constitutes a much smaller segment. Operating in this limited orbit we do not try to produce large waves but attempt to create ripples which would hopefully reach even the most under -privileged person in the farthest corner.
We firmly believe that ultimate relevance of all technological developments lies in bringing about improvement in the quality of life.
