Living in closer proximity to the mountains in India, I’ve always been passionate about nature and sustainability. However, my active involvement in Sustainable Development and Renewable Energy started when I began my Master’s in Electrical Power Engineering and Wind Energy in the Netherlands and Norway in 2017. Following the completion of my studies, I have been working as a R&D Engineer in HVDC Systems development at Hitachi Energy. HVDC is the technology that enables transmission of Offshore wind power to onshore and plays a pivotal role when it comes to energy transition and renewable integration.
I’m most passionate about energy transition focusing on HVDC and renewable integration, and non-profit and volunteering work in line with UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
I joined YES-Europe in November 2020. My experience so far has made me realise that sustainable development is a complex multifaceted challenge at various economical, technological and societal levels and requires close collaboration between Industry, academia and government bodies to have a measurable impact. YES-Europe’s focus on bringing the young leaders from different backgrounds together is what excites me about the organization.
