Winds of India (24 Hours 2016)


Almost 500 million people in India don't have reliable access to electricity. Tulsi Tanti experienced this firsthand when he was running a textile company in Gujarat in 1995. Fed up with frequent power outages, he installed two wind turbines to power his factory. He soon began to dream that wind could provide clean, sustainable power to millions of people. With his three brothers, Tanti founded Suzlon Energy, India’s first home-grown wind company. Twenty years later, Sulzon is one of the largest turbine manufacturers in the world, and India is looking to grow its wind market by 30% in the next few years. “I want people to see me as a renewable man, a wind man, A1:N68 know that I am creating a better world for the next generations.”
