Armstrong Energy Global expands team as India solar story soars

Based in Hyderabad, the Armstrong Energy Global team is expanding its staff numbers to make the most of the strong opportunities in today’s Indian solar sector.

 Since Prime Minister Modi’s election last May, the importance of India’s commitment to renewable energy has been front page news almost daily, and many states of India are launching ambitious solar and wind programmes to enhance energy security and grid reliability.  President Obama’s recent visit to India highlighted the scale of international commitment to India’s target of installing 100 GW of solar power by 2022, which will require investment of $100bn.

 Armstrong Energy Global’s Chief Executive, Dr Ram Nandakumar says, “This is an exciting time to be building a strong solar business in India, and we are delighted to have constructed our first two solar farms one in Andhra Pradesh and one in Telangana.  With a strong pipeline in place, we are confident of being able to exceed our target of installing and operating 1 GW of solar farms in India by 2020, if not before.  Our strengthened team will enable us to achieve this, and we look forward to the next stage of our development.”
