Perhaps there is no more significant motivation than the appreciation of your efforts. Ever since its creation, Hero Future Energies has been working dedicatedly towards utilizing renewable energy for the betterment of society. The projects undertaken by the company have always been met positively and to add to the delight, the renewable energy industry too is starting to appreciate its efforts. Hero Future Energies has been bestowed with two prestigious awards in 2018 so far, in recognition of its responsibility towards both the society and its community.
Golden Peacock Occupational Health & Safety Award
Instituted by the Institute of Directors (IOD), Indian in 1991, Golden Peacock Awards are today regarded as a benchmark of Corporate Excellence worldwide. They are considered a hallmark of excellence worldwide, owing to the stringent 3-tier evaluation process used to determine the winners.
Hero Future Energies’ Clean Wind Power in Ratlam, Madhya Pradesh won the Golden Peacock Occupational Health & Safety Award for the year 2018 on 9th July. The award recognized the company’s long-standing commitment to workplace health and safety conditions – best exemplified by 50 million safe hours achieved in FY 2017-18. Given that the process followed by it is in line with OHSAS 18001 for Occupational Health & Safety and International Finance Corporation performance standards, the award was a win due to the company.
While processes like noise monitoring and shadow flicker assessment for vision difficulties cater to the HFE family, environment safety too is regarded an equally pressing concern. A proactive approach and corporate policies like the ‘Green Code’ allow Hero Future Energies to work towards the sustainable development of the environment.
These efforts aimed at improving the quality of human life without making either the environment or the HFE family collateral in the process. And while achieving this feat is enough joy in itself, the Golden Peacock Award adds a cherry on top.
Best Project Award at the India Solar Week
The India Solar Week Awards celebrate the best deals, projects, and innovations in the industry over the last one year. From leading innovative thoughts to creative engineering solutions, the awards recognize both professionals and teams who have achieved an unprecedented feat in the industry. And the solar-wind hybrid project at Kavithal, Karnataka, undertaken by Hero Future Energies was one such feat.
India’s first ever large-scale solar and wind energy hybrid project was inaugurated on 13th April 2018. The 50MW wind farm and 28.8MW solar PV site is not only economically beneficial for the consumers, but is an upgrade on single technology renewables projects as well. Since wind tends to rise in the mornings and evenings and sunshine is brightest during the day, the two sources are complementary to each other.
This remarkable innovation got its due credit at the India Solar Week as the best project of the last one year, capping a successful July for Hero Future Energies. While this success is a result of years of hard work put in by the company, such large-scale appreciation will also add to the spirit of the HFE family.
