OMC Operates Micropower Plants to Generate Clean Energy

OMCYou would think that most citizens of the world now have easy access to plentiful sources of energy, but in India that is not the case. It’s true that most villages have power cables and poles, but that electricity is available to only about 10pc of the village. And even having electrical cables running through an entire village does not necessarily mean that there is live energy running through them. Without consistent electric lighting, many Indians work with paraffin lamps that can damage lungs and is not much help for accomplishing school studies in the evenings. With a lack of electricity, financial institutions cannot operate and local businesses must close by sundown. Even though most people in India do have a mobile phone, the task of charging them can be quite a challenge. Throughout the country there are some 400,000 broadcast masts set up to connect people, 60pc of which are run by generators operating on diesel fuel. With more broadcast towers in the planning, India is looking to make a change to a cleaner and renewable form of energy.

Replacing the Broken Electrical Grid with Renewable Sources

It’s plain for anyone to see that the energy grid in India is broken and that more diesel fuel is not a viable answer. The two billion litres of fuel being consumed now is very expensive and adds enormously to the pollution. Indian companies are now aiming to reduce coal and diesel dependency while cutting carbon emissions at both urban and rural towers. Their solution is creating a hybrid power that combines grid power and renewable energy sources. 

OMC Sets Up Community Power Stations

OMC is one company that has stepped in to develop clean energy for use by private individuals and businesses in India. OMC has been building and managing operations of industrial scale micropower plants that are capable of supplying power to rural communities and for mobile networks. OMC teamed up with the largest provider of mobile phones in India, Bharti Infratel, to create Community Power stations, which will switch dependence on the current power grid to a cleaner form of renewable energy.

The involvement with OMC in providing renewable and clean energy to India works well for India’s rural citizens as well as powering mobile phones throughout the country.

Renewable Energy and Solar Deployment Ventures

CPECIn recent years, India has experienced a steep increase in development of its infrastructure, but its energy sector is sorely lagging behind. With the help of initiatives established by the state and central governments, such as the Jawaharial Nehru National Solar Mission 2009, India is beginning to address renewable energy solutions. One company in particular, Communication Power Engineering Company Ltd (CPEC) is committed to helping India with those energy goals.

Transition from Manufacturing to Services

CPEC is a company in the renewable energy business that focuses on developing solar-based power generation. Although it was established back in 1942, it was only incorporated in 1987 as a public company, which is when it became known as CPEC. At that time its key business focus was on manufacturing gear boxes, following its restructuring in 2010, its business focus changed from manufacturing to service. Since then, CPEC has been working with the development of renewable energy, taking advantage of new advances in solar power. Besides India, CPEC also works with other developing countries to generate and provide power to the governments and to AAA rated industrial and manufacturing conglomerates.

Global Energy Production

The management team of CPEC is made up of experts who are knowledgeable of growth patterns involved in global energy production. They are experienced in the evaluation of global solar technologies that help them make the best technological choices applicable to existing climate conditions of any given region. The CPEC strategy entails providing full services as a developer and to independently produce power on a turnkey or intermediate basis. Its services are aimed at every level of energy consumers in the commercial, industrial and residential segments, offering solar projects that are ground mounted as well as on those on rooftops.

Investment Funds in Renewable Energy

CPEC expects to attract the attention of investors who are looking to add renewable energy to their financial portfolios by directing and managing the investments in a macroeconomic climate. With this experience and expertise in the global market, CPEC is well equipped to manage investment funds in the solar energy sector.
