The Speaker Series for PGPX-V batch formally kicked off this week with a talk by Mr Ravi Raina, President of Astonfield Renewable Resources. Mr Raina focused on the solar power sector in India- its potential and some of the challenges faced in implementing solar power projects in India. An interesting aspect of the talk was the cost-benefit analysis and the IRR (Internal Rate of Return) figures presented. I think the most important takeaway was the statement made by Mr Raina- as a professional in the conventional power sector with over 35 years in the Industry, he thought that renewable energy was the way of the future.
