Khushboo Sachdev Director Su-vastika System Private Limited - Renewable Watch*65
Khushboo Sachdev shoulders the strategic, business and operational responsibilities of Su-vastika.
Her deep-rooted understanding of the nuances of the solar energy business and knowledge of its
trends have ensured Su-vastika entry into new markets. Prior to this, she had stints with prestigious
organisation such as Headstrong, EXL, G4S Securities, and American Express.
Sachdev believes that the most pressing issue confronting the renewable energy manufacturing industry is shortage of power, especially during summer months when the heatwave peaks, despite a staggering installed capacity of 47.66 GW of solar power as per government data.” We might have the capacity to provide a surplus of 48 GW of solar power to the grid, considering peak summers when there is no dearth of sunshine and longer hours of sun exposure, but I do we feel we need infrastructural level to leverage this opportunity”, she remarks.
In her opinion, without a storage solution, there will always be a shortfall, as this surplus power is viable for the discoms only when grid electricity is available. Without it, this surplus power will not be useful, as it is only a supplement and will work only if primary power is available.
Sachdev’s management style involves learning and executing. “I am a keen learner and I know there is a lot to catch up on, but I am blessed with a great team of professionals who help me in running the business, with each having their own space to monitor and execute, “she says.
Sachdev’s primary goal is to help the company enter the Rs 1 billion turnover club with their new product range of solar and lithium-ion battery bank uninterruptible power supply (UPS) solutions that will replace diesel generator of up to 500kW. This will also address the pressing environment issues at hand, as the products will be green with minimum emission and no maintenance. “We will also be launching a smaller range of UPSs with an inbuilt lithium-ion battery bank that will be for users with small loads,” she says.
Khushboo has a master’s degree in English literature, a diploma in French Language, and has a natural flair for training. She spends most of her spare time with four-years-old twins. We love to go to parks, snuggle up to read, or play with sticker books,” she says.
