Business Ideas around solar power

Picked from Wikipedia:

India is both densely populated and has high solar insolation, providing an ideal combination for solar power in India. Much of the country does not have an electrical grid, so one of the first applications of solar power has been for water pumping, to begin replacing India’s four to five million diesel powered water pumps, each consuming about 3.5 kilowatts, and off-grid lighting. Some large projects have been proposed, and a 35,000 km² area of the Thar Desert has been set aside for solar power projects, sufficient to generate 700 to 2,100 gigawatt.

In July 2009, India unveiled a $19 billion plan to produce 20 GW of solar power by 2020. Under the plan, solar-powered equipment and applications would be mandatory in all government buildings including hospitals and hotels.

Solar Lamps
Solar Lamps are one good business idea around solar power

It is clear that India holds as very good potential as a nation hungry for solar market to emerge on a grand scale. Solar power can be used to generate tremendous amount of electricity, which can help run schools, institutions, corporate houses and even villages to be self-sufficient.

Being an entrepreneur, if you think about business ideas around solar power, here are some products and applications where solar energy can be tapped and used:

  • Solar water-heater
  • Solar cooker
  • Solar power generator
  • Solar lamps
  • Solar streetlight
  • Solar road-studs
  • Solar lighting systems
  • Solar torch
  • Solar mobile, laptop, handheld chargers
  • Solar water pump
  • Solar vegetable drier

If you come up with more ideas and suggestions about how solar energy can be used for power generation or other applications, feel free to share your views. Entrepreneurship thrives on new ideas, however queer they might sound.

    Dear Sirs Mis, our company is interested in quickly attracting venture
    funding(program GRANT) to finish work on the technology of production of
    modules with high efficiency. Nizhi request for funding and in the
    annex to the letter the results of our work in the form of a report

    We offer more detailed information on our company and demand for grant
    capital funding in the amount of – $ 3000 000.

    Inventor of.
    Company- SOLARUS ENERGY Ltd

    CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY – technology perfected laboratory,
    to manufacture industrial design and conduct an independent test.

    The additional informationFinancing term – 14 months. Return of the
    investor – in the course
    10 days after the expiration of funding.

    PROPOSAL FOR COOPERATION for venture investors
    After production of the industrial design and an independent test, we
    % Of revenue from the sale of technology.

    COMMERCIALIZATION developed technology.
    Our technology has a wide range of potential buyers.
    This technology allows all companies to manufacturers of solar modules
    very easy to integrate our technology into an existing, technological
    complex. It is planned to implement the technology on a territorial basis —

    right to the technology will be limited to use by the buyer on the
    and obemu release.

    At present the main trends in development by improving the efficiency of
    photo electric plates in the application of new non-silicon materials.
    So a few days ago, the Japanese company Sharp after 9 years of work
    reported the creation of a prototype battery that runs without a hub, but
    the efficiency of which is 35,8%.
    New uses for electricity generation several photo-absorbing layers, united
    among themselves. The substrate is made of battery connections on the basis
    of indium and gallium. The properties provided by the battery is quite close
    to those used in the aerospace industry. Talking about the mass use will not
    have developers in the coming years to address issues of cost reduction and
    a number of technological problems.
    Our company has gone a different way:
    1. We left a substrate of mono silicon.
    2. on the surface of the substrate of mono silicon, we have consistently
    strike a few
    layers of thickness 50-100 nano meter (materials that are applied is our
    know-how) —
    * Main layer of nano-size mono atomic amorphous silicon, is a very active
    state of amorphous silicon. In this layer, the speed of motion of electrons
    is several times higher than the standard Cell-based silicon. And as this
    layer is able to convert into electrical energy is not only the visible part
    of the spectrum of sunlight and ultra violet and infra red radiation. Mono
    atomic amorphous silicon produced by quantum chemical engineering at a
    temperature of 20 degrees Celsius.
    Properties of mono atomic amorphous silicon are truly unique.
    Cost to automobile 1 gr. This material does not exceed $ 100.
    At the same time using 1 gr. mono amorphous silicon can cover 10 square
    photovoltaic plates.
    * extreme layer is an anti-reflecting the carbon coating.
    Total efficiencies achieved over 35%.
    If you compare the cost of Sell-based mono silicon efficiency 16%
    Cell produced by our technology with efficiency over 35%, our Sell more
    10-15% while the efficiency of our Sell more than 2 times better.
    While improving the technology and equipment we can achieve efficiency of
    50% and above.

    In addition to the use of solar energy nanoscale mono atomic amorphous
    silicon and its application of our technology has great prospect of
    application in the electronics industry.
    When applying this material for silicon-based chip, we seek to increase
    speed and memory in the old scale of the chip.
    We have plans to use this technology in other areas – space, medicine ..
    To maintain the pace and timing of the completion of the production of
    industrial prototypes
    we raise $ 3000 000. In bringing this amount to 10 November 2010 we will pilot an industrial design in December 2011.

    We are interested in quickly attracting investment.
