EnerMAN Technologies Pvt Ltd provides innovative IOT based SCADA / Remote monitoring & control solutions for Solar PV plants. EnerMAN is a subsidiary of Avi Solar Energy Pvt Ltd. India’s most trusted independent O&M service provider for Solar PV market with experience in over 2Giga Watts of PV plants. EnerMAN was incorporated in 2019-July and within a year acquired monitoring portfolio of over 950MW of PV plants. From data acquisition at the site equipment level, to analysis of data that provides insights to plant generation & health, EnerMAN provides end to end solution to digitize and manage your PV asset. STRATEGY

Company’s broader vision for the renewable energy sector is to “Provide Innovative Solutions to Save Energy and Reduce Carbon Footprint”. Very specific to Solar PV technology our vision is to “Digitize every PV plant and make it IOT ready" EnerMAN is on a mission to be a global leader for Energy Monitoring & Managing Products and solutions. Our goal is to enable IOT at plant level and store all data in a cloud platform. EnerMAN shall provide users Energy Management Dashboards that is simple, easy to use and affordable. In the first year of operations EnerMAN did lot of retrofit projects – replacing few expensive SCADA systems which lacked service support and was also very expensive to maintain. Now that we have proven our technical competitiveness, we are poised to enter the global market with our affordable solutions. Our strategy is to partner with local players who have a strong regional presence and help us quickly acquire customers who are unhappy with existing SCADA suppliers.


ETi-LOG – a datalogger specifically designed to acquire data from Solar PV equipments, which has been tested by all Inverter brands. ETi-SOL – Cloud based monitoring platform that provides you data from all equipment in the plant and gives you comprehensive insights about plant performance. You can monitor multiple plants using one login ETi-CONNECT – is the analytics engine which can be used to compare equipment /plant performance & do lots of trend analysis. SPIDAR is our OMS assist tool which includes an APP that helps you capture inputs from the field to improve the efficiency of the OMS team. You can capture module cleaning status, DGR generation, PM check list management are some of the other salient features. TEAM & MANAGEMENT

The founders of EnerMAN are the same team that built Avi Solar energy which was identified as India’ s leading independent O&M service provider by GTM research in 2017. Ashok DM & Somashekar TH cofounded EnerMAN with selected high performing team members of AviSolar who had a passion to build global products. The products in EnerMAN are developed based on the real field experience of Solar PV plants. EnerMAN development team visit the PV plants & get hands on training on data acquisition methodology at the plants. That has helped us build a robust solution which is not simply based on theory.


EnerMAN provides end to end solution – i.e. Hardware, Firmware and Software systems that are developed inhouse. This removes the dependency on third party suppliers and also helps us sell at the lowest cost.

The core team has years of experience in MNCs developing products for Networking, Telecom, Semiconductor industry. Much of these knowledge about technology & process has been replicated at EnerMAN to churn high class reliable monitoring solutions. CUSTOMERS & PROJECTS

From Rooftops to large Utility PV plants we have diversified clientele. Few of the Solar PV industry leaders with whom we are proud to associate with are Soft Bank Energy, BHEL, Focal Energy, LNB Renewables, Hinduj a Renewables, Mahawa Solar (Srilanka), AMP energy, Cleantech Solar, Fourth Partner Energy, SIMCON & Think Energy. One of the problems we see in the PV industry is that very large utility plants >100MW are hesitant to migrate from legacy PLC based SCADA systems to IOT based SCADA. Our ambitious goal is to get deploy our monitoring solution in large solar parks & prove to industry that IOT – Cloud SCADA is low cost – reliable solution and its time to switch from legacy PLC.
