Amplus Solar launches innovation challenge for clean energy start-ups


Gurugram-based Indian developer Amplus Solar has today announced the launch of The MILES (M+ Innovation Lab for Energy and Sustainability) Challenge for start-ups with ready-to-deploy solutions in the clean energy ecosystem in India. 

The focus areas include distributed solar, Internet of Things (IoT) applications in energy, battery storage and electric mobility

Launched in association with Noida-based GoMassive Earth Network, an angel investor forum focused on sustainability, The MILES Challenge will provide participants mentorship as well as access to resources in the energy industry. Amplus has committed to supporting the MILES Challenge winners through seed capital to help them scale up. 

Ernst & Young LLP is the process advisor for the event. A jury comprising renowned experts from leading Indian and international institutions like the World Bank, The United Nations Environment Programme, Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad, among others, will evaluate the competition.

The applications for The MILES Challenge are open until January 31, 2021. 

“Amplus began as a start-up with an idea in the area of distributed solar. One of the reasons behind our success was the support we received from mentors and investors who believed in us. With the MILES Challenge, we wish to help other Indian start-ups in the clean energy space achieve their potential,” said Sanjeev Aggarwal, managing director and CEO, Amplus Solar.
