We, a jury of 4 members, finally closed the InterSolar India Awards 2014 from a final list of 10 finalists across categories of Utility Scale Projects, Industrial Projects and Off-Grid.
I am not allowed to divulge the details and we will all certainly need to wait for 18th November 2014 to know the winners.
But while judging the projects, one thing that came out very sharply, is that this year we saw projects using not technology advanced products; but innovative engineering that is making a difference on the ground. The innovation is coming from combining different technologies, working with the nature, technical engineering that better the results [generation], solving social issues with use of cleantech, etc.
The judging process was in itself a learning experience; showcasing the understanding that Indian engineering companies have developed over the last few years in the solar power space.
