    In India, Aakash Energy is a market leader with 111+ wind farms and an installed capacity of over 13,760 MW. It has developed some of Asia’s largest operational onshore wind farms in nine states including Gujarat, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, and Tamil Nadu. The Group’s diverse client portfolio includes power utilities and electricity producers in both the private and public sectors.

  • Aakash Energy Group's Vision

    The Aakash Energy Group aims to make renewable energy both simple and cost-effective for customers. In fact, Aakash Energy pioneered the 'Concept to Commissioning' model in wind energy, enabling it to meet the breadth and depth of customer requirements across the renewable energy value chain.

  • Cutting-edge Technology

    Aakash Energy Group’s investment in R&D and cutting-edge technology enables it to offer an extensive range of robust and reliable products which meet all customer requirements. For instance, Aakash Energy's S133-140m model is one of the highest yielding wind turbines in its class, and its lowest lifecycle cost helps drive down the energy price for customers.

  • Support Services

    The Group also offers and executes best-in-class Operations, Maintenance, and Services (OMS) across the globe. Apart from physical, on-ground service terms, Aakash Energy’s SCADA system (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) enables remote monitoring of over 9,830 wind turbines worldwide, allowing the Group to manage uninterrupted operations and reliability of power generation.

  • Sustainable Development

    The Group has taken innovative steps to stay competitive in a difficult economic environment and ensure further growth of the renewable energy sector. Besides being a technology leader, its CSR endeavors work to protect the environment, strengthen communities, and propel responsible growth. With ‘Powering a Greener Tomorrow’ as its vision, the Group has mandated Aakash Energy Foundation to ensure sustainability across all business operations. Aakash Energy Foundation is the medium through which the Aakash Energy group carries out its CSR initiatives. One Earth, the Aakash Energy Group’s headquarters in Pune, India, is Platinum LEED certified and is one of the greenest corporate campuses in the world.

Solar Energy

Team Details

Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the Sun that is harnessed using a range of technologies such as solar power to generate electricity, solar thermal energy (including solar water heating), and solar architecture. It is an essential source of renewable energy, and its technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on how they capture and distribute solar energy or convert it into solar power. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic systems, concentrated solar power, and solar water heating to harness the energy. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building to the Sun, selecting materials with favorable thermal mass or light-dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air.

Wind Power

Team Details

Wind power is the use of wind energy to generate useful work. Historically, wind power was used by sails, windmills and windpumps, but today it is mostly used to generate electricity. This article deals mostly with wind power for electricity generation. Today, wind power is almost completely generated with wind turbines, generally grouped into wind farms and connected to the electrical grid.

In 2021, wind supplied over 1800 TWh of electricity, which was over 6% of world electricity and about 2% of world energy.[2][3] With about 100 GW added during 2021, mostly in China and the United States, global installed wind power capacity exceeded 800 GW. To help meet the Paris Agreement goals to limit climate change, analysts say it should expand much faster - by over 1% of electricity generation per year.

Wind power is considered a sustainable, renewable energy source, and has a much smaller impact on the environment compared to burning fossil fuels. Wind power is variable, so it needs energy storage or other dispatchable generation energy sources to attain a reliable supply of electricity. Land-based (onshore) wind farms have a greater visual impact on the landscape than most other power stations per energy produced. Wind farms sited offshore have less visual impact and have higher capacity factors, although they are generally more expensive. Offshore wind power currently has a share of about 10% of new installations.

Wind power is one of the lowest-cost electricity sources per unit of energy produced. In many locations, new onshore wind farms are cheaper than new coal or gas plants. Regions in the higher northern and southern latitudes have the highest potential for wind power. In most regions, wind power generation is higher in nighttime, and in winter when PV output is low. For this reason, combinations of wind and solar power are suitable in many countries. Hybrid power are combinations between different technologies to produce power. In power engineering, the term 'hybrid' describes a combined power and energy storage system.

Examples of power producers used in hybrid power are photovoltaics, wind turbines, and various types of engine-generators – e.g. diesel gen-sets. Hybrid power plants often contain a renewable energy component (such as PV) that is balanced via a second form of generation or storage such as a diesel genset, fuel cell or battery storage system. They can also provide other forms of power such as heat for some applications.

Hybrid power plants often contain a renewable energy component (such as PV) that is balanced via a second form of generation or storage such as a diesel genset, fuel cell, or battery storage system. They can also provide other forms of power such as heat for some applications. Hybrid renewable energy systems are becoming popular as stand-alone power systems for providing electricity in remote areas due to advances in renewable energy technologies and subsequent rise in prices of petroleum products. A hybrid energy system, or hybrid power, usually consists of two or more renewable energy sources used together to provide increased system efficiency as well as greater balance in energy supply.
