Power is one of the most critical components of infrastructure and crucial for both economic growth and welfare of the nation. The existence and development of adequate infrastructure are essential for sustained growth of the Indian economy.
The Powerful backup
24x7 power supply is a rarity in India. There are very few places in the country that can boast of having continuous supply of power. All this has resulted in growth of inverters, UPS and DG sets, fondly called the ´power backup´ industry.
With´Make in India´, we can expect quality infrastructure
Backup power is required by every segment and diesel is the only choice of fuel for backup or emergency power. With ´Make in India´ initiative, we can expect world class quality infrastructure in the coming years.
Solar technology has many unique attributes which make it one of the most preferred sources of power, particularly in India, a densely populated country with a high energy deficit - it can be rapidly deployed across most parts of the country, it is modular in nature and it is environmentally friendly.
There seems to be some traction in the wake, especially
in the electrical and power equipment sector in India. When posed with some tricky questions, a surprising wave of positivity appeared among private industry leaders over the government´s tall claims of having a level playing field in this sector.
CPCB II norms: A saviour for back-up power
The gap between power production and consumption is widening in India and will further vitiate with the government´s thrust on manufacturing. Since power outages have become the norm, industrial consumers are left with no option but to use diesel gensets. As such, with a genset power range of 10 kVA-200 kVA, the Indian market is about 100 thousand units per year.
With the renewable energy sector receiving the much-needed push from the government, Jakson Power aims to become a Rs 2,500 crore company by 2016-17. Started as a trading house of electric motors, pumpsets and switchgear in 1947, the Jakson Group went on to become one of the largest players in the genset market in India
