QOS Energy Supports the Sun Pedal Ride
QOS Energy, a leading renewable O&M analytics & monitoring software provider, is sponsoring the Sun Pedal Ride.
The movement launched by Sushil Reddy, a young Indian engineer from IIT Bombay, is touring in France and North America to raise awareness about solar energy and clean transportation using a solar powered e-bike.
Sushil had recognised that there is a need to empower people with solar energy and encourage them to use more of this abundant renewable energy resource. In the summer of 2016, Sushil Reddy, undertook a unique and inventive initiative to talk to the people across India about solar energy by touring on a solar powered electric bicycle. With a team comprising of Krunal Tailor, Himanshu Singh and Rajendra Bhaskar, they went on a journey across North West India. They passsed through 9 states/union territories and covered over 7500 kilometres while interacting with people in the cities, villages and towns on the route. Sushil Reddy earned a recognition in the Guinness and Limca Book of World Records for the longest journey on a solar powered electric bicycle.
“We plan to take this movement to reach out to as many people as we can and educate people about solar energy, clean transportation and sustainability. ”
Sushil Reddy and Rajendra Bhaskar are travelling around France in June 2017 as a part of The SunPedal Ride – France edition. They are interacting with people throughout the journey while encouraging people to move towards renewable energy and highlighting the solar energy revolution in India. They have also successfully organised conferences in leading French business and engineering schools such as HEC, Insead and INSA Lyon.
Sushil is also organising a ride around California, USA in September. He will present his project and raise awareness about solar energy and clean transportation during the Solar Power International exhibition, Las Vegas, September 10-13.
