Inspiring Young Engineers to Establish Stand-Alone Micro-Grid Enterprises for the Mitigation of Power Crisis and Unemployment in India

D. V. Avasthi [2] | Gajendra Singh [7]


Abstract: This paper is a clarion call to the young Indian engineers to create and develop new micro-grid enterprises for the mitigation of unemployment and energy crisis in the country. Over 70 % of the Indian population lives in villages with majority leading life in abject poverty and energy crisis at locations remote from the cities. The development of the nation cannot be complete unless the energy needs of this large and important segment of the citizenry remain inadequately addressed on the plea of unaffordable cost of electricity infrastructure and transmission losses at their locations. The purpose of this Paper is to exhort young engineers to focus their energy on the development of undeveloped and underdeveloped regions starving due to energy crunch and shun the craze to accept underemployment in the metro cities. By doing so, they shall have the economic benefit to avail soft loans, subsidies and tax-holidays for developing new solar enterprises for the mitigation of energy crisis and provide employment to the Millions. They shall also benefit the society by preventing erosion in the environment and ecology and have the pride of transforming an energy starved India into the one with self sufficiency and on the road to progress.
