About Rural Spark
Rural Spark is a Delhi-based, Dutch-Indian startup that has set out to transform the energy market, with a strategy underpinned by the power of smart grids.
While several companies operate in the renewable energy space, Rural Spark is differentiated by its high quality and modular solutions, which can help fulfill the increasing energy needs of its customers. Filling the gap between smaller-scale solar home systems and larger micro grid systems, its product address Indias growing need for a reliable and expandable solution at a low cost.
Rural Spark is backed by reputed international funders including Engie (the largest utility company in the world) and DOEN (the largest fund in the Netherlands). Early this year, the team finalised a product that is ready to be produced on a large scale, leveraging lessons learned from years of piloting. The company has built initial systems and processes and has established relationships with several channel partners. Learn more at http://www.ruralspark.com.
