Smart Solar Spares and Repairs - Scene Consulting

Scene and partners are looking to raise £10,000 to trial their solar energy repair system Urjaa Samadhan, in Odisha (India) with 20 ‘solar entrepreneurs’. A 'super service centre' will be set up to support the 20 entrepreneurs with experienced repair technicians who will enact tougher repair jobs and act as a local parts distributor.

Every penny will be spent in Odisha, through our small team based in the capital, Bhubaneshwar. The operation runs as a social enterprise and aims to make impact on, rather that derive profit from, the solar energy market.

Urjaa Samadhan is a new Indian organisation born out of a project undertaken by University of Edinburgh and Scene called ‘Towards Resilience’. This project looked to see how Informational and communications technologies (ICTs) could be used to bridge communications gaps in the off-grid energy sector.
