Assessing current infrastructure and designing a smart solar solution to energy provision in the State of Odisha.
Vision: Odisha the leader in green energy

PROBLEM
Bhubaneswar aims to be the Green City of India. It was the first choice of the Ministry of Urban Development’s (MoUD) flagship Smart City project. A year later, it featured in the top 20 global cities of the world in the Global Smart City Performance Index 2017, according to a survey by UK-based Juniper Research. Whilst Bhubaneswar is performing well across multiple areas there are also inherent weaknesses in the cities infrastructure, culminating in the city failing to perform in follow-up Smart City assessments and it experiencing negative publicity in handling climate effects in 2018.
There is an inherent need to overhaul their existing energy infrastructure. The government is aware of this and has committed funds to allocate towards private sector organisations with innovative means to increase solar energy in the city and the greater state of Odisha.

Project Summary

The India Energy Infrastructure team have begun operations in the country this month for the first time. The main goals were to establish a presence in the local community and develop a foothold for future expansion. Primary and secondary research was undertaken, empathising with locals to uncover potential customer segments and the problems they face. The team worked hard on making a strong foundation for future teams to build upon, focusing on quality data analysis and presenting the...

Problem

Lean phase : Problem definition  Aim: To identify the greatest concerns for those facing inconsistent/expensive energy supply in the local area of Phulnakhara, India.  Introduction:  40% of families in Odisha are yet to be connected to the government grid, consequently they miss out on the social, economic and health benefits which come with a consistent energy supply. Of those who are connected their supply is marred by regular blackouts which can last several hours. This is then...

Customer Segment

Introduction:  In order to determine our customer segment, the energy infrastructure team needed to assess the needs of the different demographics by conducting surveys in the areas surrounding the PR Mansion (PEV’s India GHQ). Empathising excursions were undertaken to areas around Phulnakhara, capturing 3 separable demographic segments; Urban-Rural - UR (houses in smaller villages but still in close proximity), Rural - R (smaller houses in small villages usually for farmers and...

Metric Measurement Experiment

Context: Key metrics must be collected for each of our projects to ensure any positive impact opportunities are understood whether the impact is primary or secondary, short-term or long-term. These metrics will provide a framework for the Energy Infrastructure Assessment project moving forward and metric results will be updated as new information and larger data sets become available.   Metrics: Number of people interviewed per month with the top 4 opportunities to alleviate...
