REC Limited, a Maharatna Central Public Sector Enterprise under the Ministry of Power and a prominent Non-Banking Financial Company (NBFC) has received the esteemed ‘Innovative Technology Development Award’ at the ‘Building India 2047: Technology for Better Tomorrow’ summit organised by IIT Madras as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives. The accolade acknowledges REC’s CSR endeavour involving the installation of a 2 MW rooftop solar plant at IIT Madras, which annually generates approximately 3.15 million units of clean energy, thus aiding in the reduction of the institute’s carbon footprint.

REC Limited, through its CSR arm, REC Foundation, remains steadfast in its dedication to CSR and prioritises projects with significant societal impact, particularly those aligned with sustainable development goals and national priorities. By spearheading initiatives leveraging renewable energy sources, REC continues to pave the way towards a greener, more environmentally conscious future. Taruna Gupta, Executive Director (CSR), and Thara Ramesh, Chief Programme Manager of REC’s Regional Office in Chennai, accepted the award on behalf of REC. The ceremony was attended by Dr. Palanivel Thiaga Rajan, the Minister for IT and Digital Services of Tamil Nadu, and Prof. V Kamakoti, the Director of IIT Madras, both of whom lauded REC’s unwavering commitment to sustainable development goals.
