Cyan contributes to India-Scandinavia energy summit
The growing reputation of Cambridge UK-based CleanTech business CyanConnode as a technology gamechanger in global energy markets was recognised by an invitation to a summit engineered by India and held in Scandinavia.
CyanConnode works in both markets delivering narrowband RF mesh networks for Omni Internet of Things communications.
The company was on the inside track of a Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry event which focused on the bilateral expansion of energy cooperation and building synergies between industry, academia and R & D institutions between the energy sectors in India, Sweden and Finland.
Members of the CyanConnode team were invited through the India Smart Grid Forum to a meeting with Indian Minister of State (I/C) for Power, Coal and New & Renewable Energy and Mining, Piyush Goyal. The Minister outlined his vision to make India 100 percent smart in the next five to six years.
Vikas Kashyap, VP India for CyanConnode said: “We were pleased to meet the Minister and share our experiences and expertise with him. CyanConnode works in both Sweden and India and we feel it important to highlight how technologies can work across a variety of environments and within the cost and power parameters of different markets worldwide.”
The Minister, who has made similar recent visits to Japan, Australia, US and Singapore, says the smart city concept should be practical, doable and affordable.
CyanConnode has deployed practical solutions with CESC, Tata Power and PVNL in India that it claims are already delivering customer value. The company’s solutions have been developed at a specific price point for emerging markets and hardware components are manufactured in India, reinforcing Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Make in India’ initiative.
