The technology seamlessly integrates into existing reservoirs, providing an eco-friendly solution that leaves zero footprint at the end of the project lifecycle.

Incubated at the state-of-the-art IIT Guwahati – Technology Incubation Centre (IITG-TIC), Quant Solar has become a trailblazer in the clean-tech revolution, making significant contributions to the field of renewable energy. The startup’s success is rooted in its ability to combine cutting-edge technology with environmental sustainability.

Mr. Pankaj Kumar, Co-Founder & Director of Quant Solar Technologies, highlighted the transformative impact of their innovation, stating, “Our innovative startup isn’t just about clean energy but also about conserving water by containing evaporation; saving precious land for better utility, improved power generation due to cooling effects of water, improving aquatic life and many more. This is a monumental leap towards environmental sustainability.”

Quant Solar Technologies has also introduced a range of products within the Floating Solar sector, emphasizing their dedication to innovation. Mr. Siddhant Agarwal, Co-Founder & Director, expressed, “We firmly believe that these advancements will not only fulfill the growing energy needs but will also make substantial contributions to environmental conservation, ushering in a new era of sustainable power solutions.”

Through its groundbreaking technology and innovation, Quant Solar has strategically aligned itself with global leaders by joining the prestigious consortium led by DNV in the Netherlands. This collaboration solidifies Quant Solar as a key player in shaping global standards for Floating Solar Plants.

Prof. Senthilmurugan Subbiah, Chairperson of the IIT Guwahati – Technology Incubation Centre (IITG-TIC), praised Quant Solar’s contributions, stating, “QuantSolar isn’t just an emerging startup. It is making significant contributions to environmental sustainability. The success of startups incubated at IITG-TIC is fueled by IIT Guwahati’s unparalleled expertise in clean energy products design and development.”

Quant Solar Technologies, in its ongoing incubation journey at IIT Guwahati, remains committed to continuously innovating advanced technologies within the realm of clean tech. The collaborative environment at IIT Guwahati has played a crucial role in empowering startups like Quant Solar to lead the charge in creating sustainable solutions.

Since its inception, Quant Solar has collaborated with multiple public sector enterprises, state government bodies, and private companies. Notably, the startup has delivered India’s first Megawatt-scale Floating Solar Plant (FSP) with a capacity of 2 MW and one of the world’s largest Floating Solar Plants of 36 MW for NTPC.

As Quant Solar Technologies continues to make strides in the clean-tech sector, its commitment to innovation and sustainability positions it as a key player in shaping the future of renewable energy in India and beyond.
