PRINCE group was started by Prof. Ajay Chandak,
who is M.Tech. in mechanical engineering from I.I.T.
Powai, Mumbai and working in the area of non conventional
energy. He is supported by many like minded friends,
technocrats, students and volunteers.
PRINCE (Promoters and Researchers
In Non - Conventional Energy)
is a volunteer-based group dedicated to creating a better
world for everyone through the use of renewable energy.
We believe that protecting and enhancing the environment
is possible only through using non-conventional energy
sources. We are based in Dhule, Maharashtra, India and
work in association with the local NGO Jankibai Trust.
Since 2008 we have started working under NGO, Suman Foundation.
PRINCE's scope includes all technologies and
activities that facilitate sustainable development.
Given current resources available, we specialize in
solar energy, bio-gas, vermicomposting, tree planting
and energy conservation. Our current projects are:
- Designing, manufacturing and testing solar thermal
devices. These include solar cookers and solar steam
systems, solar vegetable dehydrators and solar water
heaters for domestic and community applications. Work
is focused on making these technologies affordable
and accessible to people of all economic levels.
- Promoting solar cookers and other solar powered
devices through public demonstrations, solar canteens,
and street shows.
- Providing entrepreneurs free training in manufacturing
- Promoting other renewable technologies including
bio-gas, vermicomposting, micro-hydel power plants,
pedal power, and other non-conventional energy sources.
- Extending free consultation to all social organizations
for use of non-conventional energy.
- Educating people on energy conservation.
