The key technology is not in laboratory, this is really happening
You are heading the thermal business for General Electric (GE) in South Asia. Can you throw some light on the business and the prospects in India?
I have been working with GE Power in Zurich, Switzerland for the last 12 years. Around two years ago, GE acquired the thermal power business of Alstom and I had the opportunity to head the South Asian division of this business in India.

Not in the race yet
India has embarked on an ambitious programme to add 9,000 MW of nuclear power capacity in the next few years, mostly riding on the new indigenously developed 700 MWe (mega watt electric) pressurised heavy water reactors (PHWRs) as part of its clean energy thrust.

The biggest opportunity comes from government sector
We had started lighting division in 2004. Till then Havells had presence in switches, switch gear, wires and cables. Last year, our turnover in lighting was close to Rs.1000 crore, in which LED component is now more than 75 per cent.

Problem of Plenty
India has become a power surplus nation, albeit with certain caveats. In its wake, it has changed the whole paradigm of generation sources, with solar and wind hogging the spotlight and coal being relegated a bit.
