The Indian Market

Growth Opportunities in India Pan Global currently has a particular focus on opportunities in India, where we believe the Company has superior growth opportunities.  While India’s growth has declined along with other major emerging markets, management believes the India growth story remains intact: India is poised for high GDP growth that will be sustained for decades to come.  The India growth story is frequently compared to China, which has sustained high (10%) annual growth for three decades (http://business.time.com/2013/04/28/the-real-reason-to-worry-about-china/), whereas India’s take-off growth began at a later stage – after the currency crisis of 1991 the Indian government undertook a series of pro-growth reforms that led to a jump in annual GDP growth from approximately 3...

Pan Global Opportunities

Our Hydro Opportunities in India Mini-to-small-hydro is a form of exploiting hydropower generating opportunities on waterways with low flow-rates but without damning the channels or having to create a reservoir. These projects generate power by diverting a portion of the water flow, running the water through a turbine, and then returning it back to the water channel – the basic technology has been in use for more than a century around the world, so there is no inordinate technology risk.  These types of projects have negligible impact on the waterway or canal, where there are no fisheries or other similar factors that typically arise in connection with larger hydroelectric projects. Mini and small hydro power generation exploits what would otherwise be wasted energy. Pan Global...
Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency

We believe Indian businesses and households are seeking energy solutions that can assist them with increasing the efficiency of their energy usage as well as seeking to adopt innovative green energy technologies that supplement or substitute for their reliance on fossil fuels and traditional grid-based electricity. We seek to provide such solutions to customers through consulting services, project implementation and project management. We envision such solutions to cover areas such as alternative energy technology implementation, building retrofits to reduce energy usage, installation of electrical control system technology and other similar items.

Sustainable Solutions

Pan Global seeks to invest in non-energy infrastructure technology and projects that provide environmentally sustainable solutions in place of conventional technology. The company is seeking opportunities to develop projects in the field of agriculture, building technology and water distribution, amongst others. Our management believes the Indian agriculture sector is ripe for adopting technologies that significantly reduce environmental footprints, such as by improving the efficiency of water use and intensity of land use. One of the areas we are focusing on is the establishment of greenhouse facilities for growing certain crops, which is a young but growing industry in India.Pan Global believes there are existing technologies in the building sector that are widely used in Europe ...
Alternative Energy

Alternative Energy

Pan Global is investigating opportunities to develop electric power generation projects from renewable energy sources such as solar, mini-hydro, geothermal and wind. While our main focus is on potential projects in India, it is not exclusively so. The company intends to pursue both types of opportunities and to assess the project viability on a case by case basis, and to invest in such projects both as owner-developers and/or as partners with other developers. Our investments may be made as equity level investments or as mezzanine funding. These projects earn revenue from the sale of power generated and sold to either government owned electricity companies or from the direct sale of power to private buyers.Within the Indian market there are available various government backed incentiv...
