During the Middle East Electricity exhibition in Dubai, UAE, Kunwer Sachdev, Founder and Managing Director of Su-Kam Solar talks to GineersNow TV about their latest solar technologies, innovative solutions for the electric power industry and utility wide power projects.
About The Leader
Kunwer Sachdev, the founder of India’s leading power solutions company – Su-Kam Power Systems, is one of the greatest innovator, marketer, motivational speaker and visionary entrepreneur of our times. The success story of Sachdev’s Su-Kam is the biggest example of ‘Make in India’.
With degrees in Mathematical Statistics and law from Delhi University, and no technical background, he mastered the advanced technologies used in power electronics owing to his zest for learning. Besides leading the overall business of the company he also heads Su-Kam’s R & D division.
Sachdev was the first entrepreneur to file patents for technology and design in the Indian power backup Industry. He is also credited with inventing world’s first plastic-body inverter which has been declared as ‘Innovation of the Decade’ by India Today. Kunwer revolutionized the power back-up industry by introducing world-class technologies such as MOSFET, Micro controller based and DSP Sine Wave into inverters. He also gave ‘Home UPS’ to India which combined the features of UPS and inverter into a single equipment. Before Su-Kam’s entry, the inverter industry was dominated by hundreds of local players who were selling substandard products – Kunwer challenged the entire industry into becoming an organized sector.
Kunwer is never satisfied with his achievements and always strives to create better technology. Kunwer wondered, “ If all electronics these days have touch-screen and wifi, why can’t home UPS have this?” He sprang into action to decode the technology for UPS. And now Kunwer is ready to launch his brainchild: World’s first touch-screen UPS which will be wifi enabled so that you can monitor it from your phone.
Who could think of this?
Owing to his many contributions to the power back-up industry, Kunwer is rightly known as ‘Inverter Man Of India’.
