Startup Village, a telecom incubator, has partnered with the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) to set up 'Energy Innovation Zone'—a platform that will power new ideas and innovations to resolve the energy deficiency that the state faces.

Startup Village and KSEB have signed an MoU to jointly set up the Energy Innovation Zone, which will be constructed in 2,500 sqft under pallet rack method.

Chief Minister of Kerala Oommen Chandy said the government will explore possibilities of setting up more innovation zones like this for other sectors too.

Startup Village has already roped in Blackberry (RIM) which set up its first innovation zone in APAC region. Talks are on with major corporate and government organisations to set up similar zones which will explore new ideas for solutions and provide better eco-systems for innovations.

This partnership would also provide a platform to showcase the ideas of young people and pitch them for funding for further development or scaling up.

The innovation zone will work in line with the National Electrical Mobility Mission 2020. The zone will give practical exposure to entrepreneurs to work together with KSEB to find out industry problems faced by power sector, develop indigenous technology solutions and utilise the domain expertise of KSEB to build home grown solutions which can then be deployed in other states and countries.
