Kunwer Sachdev started Su-Kam in 1988 with a foray into the cable TV business. After seeing the poor condition of power backup in India, he shifted his focus to manufacturing world-class inverters and home UPS for common people. He set up an R&D facility in India, a novel concept in the power backup industry. He brought MOSFET technology into inverters, making them smaller and more manageable. He brought the Pure Sinewave Inverter technology and various other technologies to India.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kunwer_Sachdev
Known as the Inverter Man of India and Solar Man of India, it is because of Kunwer Sachdev that Chinese players could never dominate India’s home UPS/inverter market. In 2018, Kunwer Sachdev was forced to leave Su-Kam by the banks when they took the company into NCLT.
After the bankruptcy of Su-Kam, he started a mentoring startup – Su-vastika, which was started by his wife khushboo Sachdev. After a lot of hard work, Su-vastika got into new domains like Lithium inverters, Lithium battery UPS, Lift Inverters having lithium battery backups, Energy Storage Systems, Hybrid Solar Inverters and specializing in lithium battery systems having a large battery bank of up to 500 Kw Systems.
With Su-vastika, he is working on new lithium-ion battery-based technologies to take power backup sectors into the future, helping the company to obtain 15 Technology patents and filed for over 60 patents.https://suvastika.com/technology-patent-in-india-by-su-vastika-in-pure-sinewave-ups-inverter-battery-inverter-erdess/
Due to his contribution to creating solar technologies in India, he has been called the ‘Solar Man of India’ by India Today news magazine. He has been awarded one of ‘India’s Most Respected Entrepreneurs’ by Hurun, a media publishing group. He is also a member of the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority, a Government agency in Gurugram, Haryana, India.
