Bosch to double its installed capacity in solar energy by end of 2016

  By the end of 2016, Bosch India’s Energy team aims to double its capacity in solar energy. Going beyond, the business intends to penetrate key industry sectors contributing to their energy efficiency measures, the company said while participating in REI 2016, New Delhi.
“Bosch is keen and tapping into the enterprise segment and captive consumers leveraging its technical and engineering design capabilities,” stated Mr. Venugopalan CM, head of Bosch India Energy business.
This year, the business unit of Bosch Energy and Business Solutions (BEBS) celebrates its three year anniversary. This relatively new business division has to its credit some of India’s most technical and complex installations. An example of this would be the installation of the 1MWp solar project for Maruti Suzuki Limited in Manesar. This project was built on a 10-metre high superstructure over an area utilised for rainwater harvesting. Another project is the commissioning of the 12 MW solar project for Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL). This project is also the world’s first airport to operate entirely on solar energy.
Bosch intends to play a very important role in the initiative that India has taken to achieve the 100 GW by 2020 target. India’s solar energy provides a golden opportunity for the country to move towards clean energy. The 175 GW of installed renewable capacity target by 2022, relies primarily on 100 GW of solar and 60 GW of wind. “For Bosch this is an opportunity and the business unit is committed to reducing the energy cost of its commercial and industrial customers. To that end Bosch has invested considerable efforts in building a team that is capable of executing projects across the Indian terrain. The business division possesses strong local competence that has been developed in-house to deliver projects with customised design and engineering,” a company statement said.
