With its own office in Mumbai, Sunlumo is now also present in India, in addition to Austria and China. “Approximately 300 days of sunshine per year make India an ideal location for using solar energy”, underlines Sunlumo CEO Robert Buchinger. Local providers tend to rely on the know-how of European countries. The new Sunlumo office is ideally located in the Nariman Point district, right at the heart of Mumbai. The famous gateway of India, a 24 meter-high gate in the British-Indian style and the Taj Mahal hotel are only a short stroll away. The Indian agency is managed by solar expert Sohrab Pavri. The Indian-born manager has lived in Germany for many years and is trained as a Solarteur application manager at the Centre for Solar Energy in Stuttgart.
Great interest in the One World Solar Collector
“Partners in India appreciate our wide-ranging research and development know-how,” reports Robert Buchinger. They are especially interested in the One World Solar Collector. The special feature about this innovative product for the volume market is that it consists of 100 per cent plastic. It is thus possible to reduce the production cost of the Solar Collector by up to 50 per cent as compared to conventional collectors,” says the solar expert. The innovative collector withstands thermal and climatic influences and is easy to integrate in any solar system. Another positive feature is its light weight. The collector is easy to assemble and can be ecologically recycled. The One World Solar Collector has been designed to support both boilers and heating systems.
New solar energy scheme
With its new solar energy scheme, the Indian government strives both to ensure the energy supply in India and to attain climate protection goals. In addition, the emerging economic power will depend less on coal and oil. This ambitious goal could make India a world pioneer in the fields of solar energy and renewable technologies.
