Why 2023 could be India's year to build a strong foundation for Energy Security
The C&I market for renewables will explode over the next decade
Yakult Danone India makes sustainability the focus by going solar with SunSource Energy
Driven by favourable policies, increased digitisation, and an exponential increase in data consumption, the Data Centres (DCs) in India are expected to grow by 5x in the next 5 year. However, the DCs are huge energy guzzlers and do require uninterrupted power throughout their operations – most of it is to run the equipment and keep the machines cool. Owing to stringent environmental norms and net-zero commitments, there is a dire need for DCs to achieve green power supply. SunSource Energy provides clean energy solutions to the DCs to support their energy transition.
Why SunSource Energy?
SunSource Energy is helping some of the world’s leading organizations with their energy transition.
