As the founder of VARP Power, he is focussing on understanding the energy needs of customers and putting together solutions to reduce their energy footprint, reduce emissions and move their energy portfolio to a more sustainable and economical vector. VARP currently owns and operates a solar rooftop/open access capacity of 5 MW supplying clean power, under long term arrangements, to its customers.

As co-founder of Civet Projects, he is engaged in building world-class project execution teams to execute Microirrigation projects on Scale.
Before the current entrepreneurial stint, he headed the India renewables business for Brookfield Asset Management. He headed an operation that owned and operated a 302 MW of solar/wind asset portfolio. He was also deeply involved in strategizing clean energy asset acquisitions for portfolio growth.
Before Brookfield, as head of Project Development of Wind and Solar verticals at Greenko, his mandate was to oversee the execution of projects on cost, time, and quality. The high point of my Greenko tenure was the commissioning of the world’s largest solar farm (500 MW AC / 816 MW(DC)) in Kurnool Solar park, which my team delivered in a record time of 5 months setting global benchmarks of project management. While at Greenko I built and commissioned a 900 MW of wind capacity and 1333 MW of solar portfolio.
