Breakthrough in Energy R & D

Breakthrough in Energy R & D Hansavivek JYOTI has developed various equipment for harnessing renewable energy sources and has also started marketing these products. The response, according to the directors, is far beyond their expectations. To cater to the fast growing demand of these products, the company is in the process of creating separate manufacturing facilities. It has developed several solar energy based products such as hot water systems, hot air systems, etc, for industrial and agricultural uses. It has recently introduced a wind energy conversion system, which will be useful for coastal and hilly areas. Vapour absorption refrigeration systems based on both solar energy as well as waste heat recovery from industrial units are also offered by the company to meet the needs of industries and agriculture. The energy division is also offering four different decentralised power generation options based on various renew able sources like solar radiation, wind energy, bio-gas and energy plantations for remote rural areas. The Finance Act has offered certain incentives for developing, manufacturing and making use of solar energy equipment economically more attractive. This will enable the company to expand the area of its operations both product- wise and marketwise. As a pioneer in the held of micro hydel technology in India, the company today is in a position to cater to the bulk of the requirements of mini hydel and micro hydel sets, which have increased considerably in the wake of the energy crisis. It has also developed and successfully manufactured 7.2 kV, 40 kA minimum oil circuit breaker, which is one of the highest ratings in this voltage class available in India. The breaker has been well accepted by the Electricity Boards. The company has started manufacture of instrumentation panels using digital in struments and multi-point temperature scanners and already exported two such panels. It is now able to meet the requirements for sequence controls in thermal/power stations and industries.
