We are a microcosm of young thinkers engineers and leaders committed to assisting the world in ambitious reform that is driven by both a climate crisis and humongous opportunity for growth”, speaks Mr. Ali Imran Naqvi CEO – Gensol Engineering Limited.

India’s Solar Expansion Ambitions & Gensol’s Roadmap:

As Indian solar installations cross 67 GWs and country sets out on its ambitious plans for energy transition; Gensol sees huge opportunities ahead in coming years when country will require at least 190 GWs Solar installations with investments worth approx $500 bn. Company aims to seize these expansion opportunities through strong revenue growth from its solar business during next fiscal year onwards; apart from EV manufacturing facility that has potential to generate substantial income hence aligning with the broader renewable goals of India thereby strengthening position of Gensol into this industry.

Key Officials and Leadership:

At the head of Gensol Engineering Limited is a team of distinguished individuals who, through their invaluable expertise and vision, have been monumental in the company’s accomplishments. The key officials are:

Mr. Anmol Singh Jaggi – Chairman & Managing Director

Mr. Puneet Singh Jaggi – Whole Time Director

Mr. Ali Imran Naqvi – Chief Executive Officer

Their collective leadership and strategic direction has guided Gensol to new heights.

The Power of Personal Growth:

One crucial factor that sets Gensol apart is its emphasis on personal development. Personal growth is the key to unlocking success in all aspects of life. In order for their team to give their best selves at work, Gensol believes they need to be at their best personally as well. They insist that the level of personal development will always directly correlate with one’s level of success achieved. By prioritizing personal growth and dedicating time to self-improvement, Gensol fosters a workforce that thrives in health, happiness, finances, relationships, career and spirituality. Business management controlled with care and compassion has helped create a workplace environment where employees feel understood and valued both personally and professionally.

Gensol cherishes its leaders becoming individuals who are a blend extreme personal humility but intense professional will while thinking beyond themselves and for the institution.

Acquisition & Diversification:

Gensol Engineering Ltd has expanded its capabilities by acquiring Pune-based solar tracker specialist Scorpius Trackers which will offer end-to-end EPC solutions including cutting-edge solar tracking technology.

This strategic move helps improve competitive advantage whilst offering comprehensive technologically advanced solutions to clients.

The acquisition will further enable GEL’s ambition towards becoming one of India’s leading renewable energy solution providers across various locations/ countries by widening its services offerings within renewables space.

With this acquisition now Solar EPC turnkey provider shall have an ability to provide engineering procurement construction (EPC) solution incorporating advanced solar tracker technology. This will help customers to reduce and optimize their energy cost.

Scorpius has developed its own exclusive tracker controller, software and unique structure designs in line with the changing needs of IPPs and EPC companies in order to deliver quicker payback periods and higher ROI.

Scorpius has signed LOI for a total of 800 MW which will be completed on time. It is only Indian supplier who have proven track record of 600 MW capacity across various locations like India, Japan, Africa, Middle East etc.

The combined revenue from Gensol Solar Division is expected to achieve ₹2,300 Cr in FY24.

Electric Vehicles:

Gensol’s EV leasing vertical facilitates leasing solutions for the faster adoption of electric vehicles in India so as to make it more accessible for businesses & individuals.

Arguably, EV financing is the biggest obstacle that stands against the widespread adoption of EVs in India. The lack of accessible and affordable options, limited dedicated products, high-interest rates, and stringent requirements have caused potential buyers to think twice before making a purchase. That being said, the EV leasing solution is exactly what the market needs to solve this problem and make sustainable transportation more attainable.

Gensol has already leased over 4k EVs to leading players in three years and plans to lease 10k cars in FY24. Interestingly enough, the leasing business will be the front runner in offering solutions to customers of Gensol’s manufacturing business—so this move comes with a lot of synergy between manufacturing & leasing.

Financial Performance at a Glance:

The figures speak for themselves when it comes to Gensol’s financial results for FY 2023. The massive revenue growth of 145% demonstrates their ability to secure and successfully execute renewable energy projects. And with a net profit of INR 249 million, it’s safe to say that they know how to efficiently manage costs.

Strategic Expansion & Project Wins:

In FY23, Gensol Engineering Ltd. was chosen as the preferred EPC partner for several notable projects which further solidifies their position as reliable partners in solar energy development. They won a bid valued at INR 232.49 crore for developing floating solar projects with an aggregate capacity of 30 MWac; received Purchase Order for development of Solar Power Projects having total capacity exceeding 247 MWp which includes a significant order of ground mount projects having capacity exceeding180 MWp from Large Independent Power producer (IPP) located at Gujarat.
These wins bolster AGEL’s portfolio towards its pipeline target of achieving GW scale project portfolio by 2025.

Strong Financial Performance

With consolidated revenues growing by ~145% YoY basis, EBITDA grew by ~196% and PAT increased by ~ 247%, this fiscal has been one of the best for Gensol. This sort of consistent excellence is more evidence of their commitment to sustainability and innovation.

Another great milestone!
