Enzen, the global energy and water specialist company based out of Bangalore, India has recently commissioned its Energy Research Centre (ERC).
Encouraged by the opportunities emerging from its initial R&D Centre in the United Kingdom, Enzen has established its second R&D centre, this time at its headquarters Bangalore, India. This multi-million research facility will develop niche technologies and solutions for electric vehicles, energy storage and affordable water treatment technologies.
This centre will serve as an innovation and collaboration hub and develop cutting-edge technology and solutions with the aim of future-proofing the energy and water space. In addition to nurturing talent within the organisation, it will collaborate with startups, academia, research institutes, think tanks and other stakeholders from across the globe to co-create solutions that solve tomorrow's problems, today.
Dr. Uma Rajarathnam, Head of Enzen's Applied Research & Collaboration (ARC) stated that "This centre will bring together ideas, solutions, technology, passion as well as the best minds to address the emerging needs of our focus sectors. It will develop products and solutions within the areas of electric vehicles, energy storage, and water resource management, leveraging the potential offered by the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and mixed realities. In addition, it will incubate dedicated Centers of Excellence (CoEs) for artificial intelligence, mixed realities, and storage solutions for sub-500 kW applications.”
The centre has already signed up to collaborate with various ground-breaking programmes run by world-class universities in the UK to develop solutions for the energy and water sectors. Amongst these programmes are the Artificial intelligence and Innovative Networks (AIIN) at Warwick University, as well as the Supergen Energy Network hub at Newcastle University.
Enzen, the company that is dedicated to making energy and water affordable, available and sustainable will continue to expand its capabilities and invest in innovation hubs such as these, with the next centre planned for set up in Australia. This too will contribute to the company’s objectives to tap into the best of the capabilities, solutions and talent required to achieve its goals for a sustainable future.
