Innovative business models on renewable energy

 The thought provoking Business Strategy Development Competition, the finale of ‘India-Sweden Innovations’ Accelerator (ISIA)’ programme successfully concluded at WeSchool, Mumbai, where teams from WeSchool and Institute for Future Education, Entrepreneurship and Leadership (iFEEL) presented future-proof business models and strategies on renewable/green energy that can be implemented especially in the energy starved rural India. 
The business ideas designed by students’ teams were evaluated by an external jury panel comprising of Ludvig Lindstorm, Country Director- India, Swedish Energy Agency, Dr Anjali Parasnis, Associate Director- Western Regional Centre, TERI, Srikant Illuri, Executive Director and Country Head Investment, Business Sweden and Dr Christer Nygren, Professor of Innovation at Malardalen University, Sweden.
The winning team of Virendra Singh Shekhawat, Sagar Deshmukh, Shashank Angadi and Omkar Ranade presented a business plan for Exeger, a Swedish company that produces dye-sensitized solar cells. These cells can be affixed to the massive glass frontages of skyscrapers for garnering and storing solar energy which can be used by the building thereby not only creating solutions towards sustainability and saving of costs but breaking new grounds, by moving closer to the goal of liberating devises from the grid, making them self-powered. The WeSchool team provided a detailed roadmap for Exeger, developing business strategies to ensure utmost support to their respective partner companies and adherence to the timelines thereby developing the best business solutions to enter the Indian market with their product.
