BHOPAL – July 22, 2013 – SunCarrier Omega, a premier provider of turnkey renewable energy solutions, has been shortlisted for the 2013 SEED Awards. Founded by UNEP, UNDP and IUCN in 2002, the SEED (Supporting Entrepreneurs for Environment and Development) award is part of an international competition distinguishing outstanding entrepreneurial spirit and engagement amongst local environmental and development initiatives.

India suffers a 25% deficit in electricity generation. Large segments of the community are deprived of the access to a reliable supply of electricity, or worse, access to the utility grid altogether. This adversely affects livelihood, human development, productivity and the quality of life. SunCarrier Omega offers a robust and viable off-grid energy paradigm based upon its sun-tracking solar PV generators coupled with large capacity energy storage and management systems. This democratizes access to electricity, prevents depletion of scarce fossil fuels, and eliminates tonnes of carbon emissions.
SunCarrier Omega’s Net-Zero Energy Building is one of a handful worldwide to have been awarded the LEED Platinum rating. Globally acclaimed, it was also awarded the Intersolar AWARD 2012 and the Excellence in Design Award 2013 amongst others. Being shortlisted for the 2013 SEED Awards re-affirms the value of such initiatives.
