Vijay Bhopal

CEO, Inclusive Energy

Vijay has worked in renewable energy since 2010, initially in Scotland where he designed and led a range of medium sized wind, hydro and solar projects. In recent years his focus turned toward integrated local energy systems and how to utilise ICTs in energy provision.

Since 2014 Vijay has thrown himself at the energy access challenge, first spearheading Urjaa Samadhan, an Odisha, India, based social enterprise working with poor users of off-grid solar equipment in India (now part of Inclusive Energy). Having seen how local companies are disadvantaged in the energy access market, he conceptualised and has driven the development of Cloud Solar – Inclusive Energy’s first product.

Beyond day to day business, Vijay likes to research, write and get stuck into data. He has contributed to various research projects and publications, including the Poor People’s Energy Outlook in 2017 and 2018. Vijay is Non-Executive Director at Scene, one of Inclusive Energy’s founding organisations, Co-Founder of Farm-Hand, and an Unreasonable Fellow.
