Dubai, UAE, 23 December 2018: The availability of solar energy and the use of solar technology is not a new concept, said Sandhya Prakash, Founder and Managing Director, Beacon Energy Solutions. “However, solar technology is not being used to its full potential in the region,” she said. The retrofit market is ripe and with the call for retrofits, every building being retrofitted must be given individual attention, Prakash added.

“The belief that one solution fits all is a wrong proposition,” Prakash said. A retrofit, she said, requires a certain amount of consulting, before it is even suggested. She further said: “End-users don’t always want to pay for consulting and as a result, often end up choosing the wrong retrofit for their buildings. Consulting is something that we always insist on, in addition to carrying out an audit to monitor a report before and after the retrofit is carried out.” She added, “We have completed 60 projects in the span of three years and have a success rate of 40%.”
