South Asia requires a whooping investment of USD 2.5 trillion over the next ten years, out of which one third is to be spent on transport, one third on electricity, and the remaining on water supply and sanitation, solid waste management, telecommunications, and irrigation.
South Asian countries have abundance of untapped wind, solar, and run-of-river hydropower, and are mostly over reliant on expensive imported fossil fuel to produce this power.
While we have a strong focus on the renewable sectors across South Asia, we continue to target other areas of infrastructure like agricultural infrastructure, waste management, logistics & transportation, water & waste water management, and other allied infrastructure sectors, where investment is urgently required.
Agriculture continues to be the mainstay for all South Asian economies with over two third of their work-force dependent for livelihood. We evaluate opportunities in this sector from cultivation to agri-infrastructure.
South Asian countries have high wind resources spread across the country. Barring India, wind power has not been explored to its potential in the neighboring nations like Pakistan, Bangladesh & Sri Lanka.
Countries in South Asia have tremendous sources for hydro power production, but despite the huge potential, very little generation of power is utilized. We evaluate hydro-electric based power projects.
Solar power has been the latest entrant in the renewable sector and has made a significant impact already in South Asia.Bangladesh is implementing the world’s largest solar home system program. We evaluate solar power-based projects .
Southeast Asia, with its abundant bioenergy resources, holds a strategic position globally in the biomass energy field. There is immense bioenergy potential in South Asian countries due to plentiful supply of diverse forms of biomass wastes.
We strongly focus on and evaluate low cost and affordable housing projects in this region. Being the most populous region in the world, with a very sizeable percentage below poverty line, South Asia needs millions of houses for its people.
We evaluate opportunities across areas such as urban/rural water treatment, supply and distribution, sanitation, solid waste disposal/collection and waste treatment, bulk water supply (water reservoirs, transfer schemes, dams and pipelines)..
Across South Asia, transportation sector requires huge investments, to ensure effecient and effective infrastructural development. We evaluate fixed and moveable transportation sector including roads, bridges and heavy rail systems .
