IPAMA installs 20 KW solar power plant at its administrative building

Eco-friendly step to save electricity


The Indian Printing Packaging & Allied Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (IPAMA), which is known for organizing the Printpack India exhibition in the country on graphic arts industry, has initiated an eco-friendly step for saving electricity which is being generated through fossil resources. Well,you can also see this because the association has installed a 20 KW solar system photo-voltaic power plant in its administrative office in Noida, Delhi/NCR.

Solar energy has become the world’s fastest growing source of power. India is the world’s fourth largest carbon emitter in which power sector is a significant contributor. However, in recent years, India has made strides in the field of renewable energy. Clean and sustainable power is a need of the day. In India, majority of the current electricity supply is generated from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas, but these traditional energy sources face several challenges, including rising prices, security concerns, over-dependence on imports, etc. It also involves climate change risks associated with power generation using fossil fuels. Keeping these several factors in view, the central and state governments are supporting the development of alternative energy sources and new technologies.

The excess electricity generated by the solar plant installed in IPAMA premises will be supplied to the state government as per the norms. IPAMA says that although its motivations for going solar are economic, there are many positive sides of using solar energy. It believes that solar energy is eco-friendly, allows optimum utilization of land and, most importantly, it is better for the nation as it reduces dependency on other countries for fuel.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
