Power is an important topic, especially, in a land as big and as diverse in India. If you really see, the issue of power and energy in India can be highly divisive- in the way that for a person sitting in Lutyens Delhi, and for a person from the countryside, the energy requirement per day is hugely disproportionate.
That means, that India’s power and energy industry has become a giant simply because of its huge population with an entire spectrum of energy requirements. Recently, solar energy has become a buzzword within India’s energy industry as it is being seen as a worthy proponent in India’s rural electrification push.
So, in a nation where electricity can often be scantily available, Uninterrupted Power Supplies (UPS) emerge as a key place for energy storage in times of a power cut. Several reports claim that come 2021, India’s UPS industry will reach USD 1.2 billion- and that is a very big number.
A number of companies have been making UPS’ in India for a long time now. We have compiled a list of the top 10 UPS manufacturers in India. Take a look:
