Madhusudan V. Atre

"Sun shines on India. The promise of solar energy is bright. We have the technology to equip the solar power industry, the friendly government policies in place, the need for power, and the PM's vision on renewable energy sources. This also enables the platform for a semiconductor manufacturing ecosystem at much less cost."
