CHAPTER – 1
INDUSTRY PROFILE

The primary consumer segment using solar heater is of educated, cost conscious people, who are ready to take the option of saving electricity and help environment. The other segments are still largely unexplored. Finally the economic conditions of India also pose a challenge to solar power heater penetration where those who genuinely cannot afford electricity, cannot pay for the upfront cost of the solar heater and manage with burning wood or other fuel to meet the need. The companies in this space need great effort to draw attention of potential buyers and educate them about its benefits. Industry Description & Outlook India‟s population of more than 1.2 billion people and GDP growth rate of over 7.8% have put tremendous pressure on the country‟s energy resources. The has

resulted in the rapid depletion and increased cost of non-renewable energy sources. Having more than 300 days of sunshine a year, India has an opportunity to increasingly use solar power, which does not encroach on forest resources and is not dependent on conventional energy. Within the solar power industry NSSPL is focused in the solar water heater market, which has a potential market size of 140 million square meters . The gross potential for solar water heating systems in India has been estimated at 140 million sq. m. of collector area. Of this, 40 million sq.m. has been estimated as the realizable Techno-economic potential at this stage. A total of 3.53 million sq. m. of collector area has so far been installed in the country for solar water heating as on March 2010 . The achievement so far has been modest compared to the overall potential. However, a reasonable infrastructure has emerged and experience is available for manufacture and installation for solar water heating systems.A cumulative target of 20 million sq.m. has been set under National Solar Mission which is proposed to be achieved in three phases as Phase 1(2010-2013) 7 million sq. m. Phase II (2013-2017) 8 million sq.m and Phase III (2017-2022) 5 million sq.m . Government initiatives have led the industry to grow on average 25%-30% year on year. Solar water heaters are becoming popular among residential users for home-use as well as institutional and industrial users. Currently, residential users constitute 50% of NSSPL‟s business, while 50% is sold to institutional institutional and industrial users might grow at a faster pace than residential users. Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission – Building Solar India Jawaharala Nehru National Solar Mission is one of the eight National Missions which comprise India‟s National Action Plan on Climate Change. It has the twin objectives of contributing to India‟s long-term energy security and its ecologically

sustainable growth. We are living in a world of rapidly depleting fossil fuel resources with access the conventional energy resources such as oil, gas and coal becoming increasingly constrained. Besides, there are a large number of areas in the counry, which do not have access to electricity. Many other areas face power shortages. Huge quantities of kerosene and diesel are used to meet the lighting and power requirements of these areas. In this context, and in view of the . high solar radiation over the country, the rapid development and deployment of solar energy applications in the country would be critical to provide long term sustainable solutions, providing energy access and substantially reducing fossil fuel consumption. The mission will be implemented in 3 stages leading to an installed capacity of 20,000 MW of grid power, 2,000 MW of off-grid solar applications and 20 million sq.m. solar thermal collector area and solar lighting for 20 million households by the end of the 13th Five year Plan in 2022. The immediate aim of the Mission is to focus on setting up an enabling environment for solar technology penetration in the country both at centralized and decentralized levels . The present police consists of following ingredients.  Loan @ 2%, 3% and 5% respectively to residential, institutional and industrial/commercial customers. Interest free loans to residential customers in selected regions of India.  Capital subsidy equivalent to upfront interest subsidy to institutional and industrial/commercial customers who do not avail of concessional interest loan.  Capital subsidy @ Rs.6000 per 100 Ipd, in addition to concessional interest loans, to residential customers in few states, e.g., Delhi

It has grown to approximately 64 manufacturers of solar water heaters, which are on the certification list of Bureau of Indian standards (BIS). However, the majority are small, regional players. With a market share of over 50% of total sales in the country , Karnataka dominates the market. Similarly, in West India, much of the business activity is carried our in Maharashtra. This is due to the fact that

Mr.K.R. Surendra Kumar, a first- generation entrepreneur started his career as a fuel-efficient wood Fuel Stove (WF Stoves ) producer in a village near Tiptur, Karnataka in 1988. The energy efficient WF stoves saved 25% wood-fuel over traditional WF Stoves and were more efficient. This Central Power Research Institute (CPRI) WF stove design channeled the air movement in such a manner that the energy generated by the wood fuel was more efficient than contemporary WF stoves. This design, coupled with a 75 % government subsidy to purchasers of these stoves, helped Mr. Kumar sell over 500,000 WF Stoves in South India under the brand name “NUCIFERA‟. When the central government withdrew the subsidy in 1992, the market for the stoves declined, and Mr.Kumar stopped production, Despite this situation, the company‟s promoters leveraged their experience in WF Stoves and the field of non-conventional energy, and began manufacturing solar water heater systems, with INR 150,000, Mr.Kumar was then able to continue production of solar water heaters under a new company “Nuetech Systems”. Nuetech Solar Systems was established in 1992 as partnership firm , which later evolved into a private limited company. Currently, Nuetech is re-working on marketing strategies to increase the scale of its operations and build larger marketing team to push the products to customer. In doing so, it is designing its new marketing department to enhance the existing dealer network and bring in new marketing concepts which has proven in the industry. Having seen the market where awareness among the general public is relatively less, Nuetech intends to create visibility and reach so that the buyers are aware about Nuetech products and its strong products which will increase the growth of the company.

Products Nuetech manufactures and supplies a wide range of solar water heaters and markets solar PV lighting systems, for which it also offers customization services (e.g. optimum design & sizing for larger buildings). These products use solar energy for heating water for household, commercial, institutional, and industrial requirements. The solar water heating system consists of solar panels that absorb and retain solar energy, from where hot water is then transferred to a storage tank or „geyser.‟ The geyser has the capacity to retain hot water for many hours due to the addition of suitable insulation. Hot/warm water therefore remains in to geyser until it is used. Target Client Nuetech‟s target clients are residential buyers for home/family use, as well as institutional and industrial users that purchase more customized solar water heating systems (e.g.in terms of design, capacity, etc.) for larger buildings. The latter includes buildings such as hospitals, nursing homes, apartment buildings, hotels, and hostels, Muetech primarily operates in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Goa, and Maharashtra, and has started its operations in New Delhi, Bhopal Raipur and other North Eastern States of India.

Nuetech‟s current marketing and sales strategy is highly successful at its present level of business. However, the model can be further scaled up for higher sales turnover. Along with its current and expanding dealer network across various states, methods such as advertising campaigns, regular newspaper ads, and television and radio insertions will be used. Nuetech has began to market its products through a DIRECT MARKETING to reach various households of the country and cater to household requirements and alternatively work on commercial, and institutional/industrial customers when opportunity permits. Nuetec plans to test run this modul to make sure that it does not affect the existing dealer network. Under this model marketing executives shall be recruited popularly known as “LEG SOLDIERS” who shall visit various households on daily basis and convince them about the products and its customer services. These executives will be given with target for the month and will be supervised by team Leaders, AGM. There shall be a Sales Coordinator to take care of dispatch and collections made from “LEG SOLDIERS”. They shall be

having a separate branch office from which they shall operate and report. CDM Activities NSSPL considers its business as a commitment to contribute to an

Once a product is manufactured, it is kept in Nuetec‟s warehouse before being transported to the customer for installation. Installation typically occurs within eight hours from the time of receipt of systems at a residential installation site. Installation of institutional and industrial systems on the other hand, takes one to five days depending on the system‟s capacity. Nuetech uses its own vehicles for transportation for installation. If customers require the product urgently, Netech uses reliable cargo services. Inter-state deliveries are made through Nuetech‟s network of transportation agents, which have a large number of vehicles and are reliable. Post Sales Support/Customer Service Nuetech‟s reputation has been built on reliability, good quality products, and strong customer service support.

 Addresses complaints immediately –once Nuetech receives a complaint, it analyzes the problem and sends a technician to solve it within a 24 hour time period  Conducts customer satisfaction surveys by a) sending a customer authorization format along with the system, b) using a customer feedback forms, and c) using call slips to ensure the attendance of the technician. Data is then analyzed to demonstrate the suitability and effectiveness of the product. This information allows Nuetech to adjust the product‟s characteristics, look into processes, and examine opportunities for improvement. Cost of Goods Manufactured Structure The cost of goods manufactured strncture includes high cost direct raw materials and medium cost accessories to core raw materials. These constitute approximately 65% of total cost of goods manufactured, while wages and salaries paid for production constitutes 10% and other required overheads amount to 5% of cost of goods manufactured.

Risks & Risk Management Solar Water Heaters (SWH ) based of Fiat Plate Collector (FPC) and Evacuated Tube Collector (ETC) Technologies are mature technologies that hve evolved over the years. However, a change in certain technology used in the typical manufacturing process could lead to the need to re-adjust Nuetech‟s processes (e.g.could cause a change in raw materials).

[Type text]

Page 51

[Type the document title] [Pick the date]

Nuetech therefore remains open to changes and is constantly seeking to improve its products, innovated, and use new techniques to offer its customers the best quality and most reliable product. This is evident by the adoptionof a relatively new market-leading Evecuated Tube based technology . Raw Material Cost Variability Risk Typical raw materials for solar water heater systems include coper, aluminum, and stainless steel, which are cost sensitive. Consequently, Nuetech constantly looks for good quality substitute metals that are less expensive and can replace the currently used material. Such substitutes include :  Copper –galvanized iron, mild-steel, cold-rolled steel, annealed MS, Polypropylene , copper-aluminum alloy, composite material etc.  Aluminum- fiber reinforced plastic, galvanized iron, powder-coated MS, pre-coated MS/CI, molded thermo-plastic molded FRP/thermo plastic, powder-pre-coated GI.  Stainless Steel for Storage Tank –Epoxy/ceramic coated MS,GI Nuetech also plans to put forward contracts in place as a mechanism to control raw material costs. Social & Environmental Impact Social Impact Between 1992 and 2012, the industry has installed above 20 million liters of solar water heaters in domestic and industrial sector. There is a indirect economic and social impact to the installation of these systems there, as one unit of saving electricity equals two units of generating power .

Solar water heaters provide an almost assured supply of hot water, independent of grid power for about 300 days a year in Karnataka, These SWHs are predominantly used in urban areas, usually replacing electric water heaters (boilers/geysers) thereby proving to be a dependable source of one of the basic amenities (i.e., hot water) Nuetech has been part of green energy campaign to educatie students and youth in Bangalore. Presently Nuetech employs approximately 500 people, directly and indirectly to serve the industry . The company estimates are listed below.

 Directly employed in Nuetech  Good porters  Freelance electricians and plumbers  Goods transporters  Dealers and their employees  Freelancers  Others Economic Impact

Through its own analysis, Nuetech states the SWHs work for at least 15 to 20 years with negligible maintenance. In addition, the pay back period for the user is less than five years, considering only savings on electricity bills. It is observed that an
[Type text] Page 53

[Type the document title] [Pick the date]

all electric household (AEH) saves approximately 40% to 60% of their electricity bills after switching over to SWH. The grid power thus saved by the end user (household) is approximately double. After considering other factors such as transmission and distribution losses. Environmental Impact SWHs work on solar energy, which are a zero emission source of energy and a perennially renewable source. Furthermore, they have a long likfecycle of about 20 years. These systems are in contrast to systems that use polluting fossil fuels including coal and diesel. Currently, 50% of Karnataka‟s electricity is generated through such fossil fuels. Technology The flat plate collector technology used along with other efficient practices makes SWHs highly reliable and safe products. Hence these products are highly suitable for applications such as domestic households. Since the technology used is indigenous and all raw materials are available locally, the SWH industry faces very low technological risk. Hence, the technology is sound and comparable to the best practices.

Nuetech‟s Contribution Nuetech has installed over 200,000 square meters of solar-energy collector area since its inception and has over 50,000 satisfied customers, Through its past activities, Nuetech has reduced green house gas emission(calculated on a conservative basis) equivalent to about 2 million tons of CO2

Furthermore, solar water heaters, which usually replace electrical boilers/geysers, save at least 750 Kwh of electricityper square meter of collector area per year. At a nominal cost of INR 4 per unit (Kwh). Nuetech‟s business has also contributed to the reduction in use of conventional energy, albeit small.

Appendix 1 : Market Research Some of the major competitors of Nuetech and their geographical operations are as below: a) Tats BP Solar, Bangalore :area of operation –All India : with a wide and focused dealer network all over the country Tata BP is the usual competitor at major projects and government tenders Tata being a household name and synonymous with quality and reliability, the smaller projects and domestic household enquiries are something passed on to Tata BP dealers on a preferential basis even though the costs are higher. However, as Tata BP has refrained from dealing directly with all types of customers, small or big, and only their dealer are providing the pre and post-sale services, the company and its dealers have earned the dubious distinction of very unprofessional services particularly after-sale in many areas of operation. Over the period of time it is becoming easier to complete with Tata BP, b) Emmvee Solar (solarised), Bangalore – Area of Operation: Karnataka: The company has a strong dealer network in the city of Bangalore and some other districts in the state of Karnataka: One of the main unique selling propositions of Emmvee is the easy financing schedule provided at the customer‟s door step, as an financial intermediary of India Renewable

Energy Development Agency Limited (IREDA) at subsidized interest rates. The company has established an effective After-Sales-Services department along with a loan recovery team. c) Anu Solar, Bangalore: Area of Operation – Karnataka The company has a strong direct marketing technique which was test implemented in Bangalore and now successfully running in Bangalore . this technique has provided growth of more than 50% in last two financial years. They are aggressively competing for the top three positions in solar thermal activities. d) Rashmi Industries, Bangalore : Area of Operation- All India: Predominantly an OEM supplier, Rashmi Industries has also started its Photovoltaic Module manufacturing unit and is now involved in major PV tenders and is loosing its priority in SWH activities. However, Rashmi is a force to recon with as far as the SWH OEM market is concerned. e) Kotak Urja, Bangalore : Area of Operation – All India : Kotak Urja, which is both a SWH and PV manufacturer, concentrates on major projects and PV tenders on an all india basis. Its presence in the smaller systems segments, including the domestic household applications, is only nominal. Some of the regional competitors that we face in the market are: f) Sudharshan saur shaki Pvt. Ltd., Aurangabad – Area of Opereation: Maharastra and some parts of Northern Karnataka : The company has shifted its focus from the Flat Plate Collector technology to the Evacuated Tube collector technology totally and provides stiff competition in their areas of operation. They are basically involved in smaller requirement segment only and do not have competence in the executing bigger projects.
