We're glad to welcome V.S.K.V. Harish to the Rural Spark team. As a Post Doc fellow in TERIUniversity, he submitted his PhD on energy efficiency and demand side management in buildings at the Indian Institute ofTechnology Roorkee. He is a post graduate (gold medalist) inPower engineering from Jadavpur University, Kolkata and a graduate in Electrical and electronics engineering from Maharshi Dayanand University, Rohtak. Definitely an addition to our team.
Harish shall be working towards developing and implementing smart rural grids in India. He will be involved in conducting a theoretical investigation into existing smart grid hard/soft-ware options and how these fit into the specific rural Indian context. This research will result in a computer based smart grid model, ideally visualising energy/money/control flows as well as an implementation roadmap. Theoretical insights together with trials will inform the actual prototype development.
We can't wait to share his results with you, and even more, to actually implement them into the field. Harish, amaze us and all of India.
