KSUM KSEB Energy Open Innovation Zone

Kerala State Electricity Board

The KSEB Energy Open Innovation Zone (EOIZ) was established to explore new ideas and technology to be effectively absorbed and deployed in the power sector. The EOIZ came into being subsequent to an MoU signed on 16.03.2016 between Chief Engineer, Renewable Energy & Energy Savings, KSEB; and Chief Executive Officer, Kerala Startup Mission. KSEBL is supporting the EOIZ by providing technical, non technical and financial support for the execution of selected innovative/meritorious ideas. The Innovation Fund received from Government of Kerala was used to meet the financial needs of EOIZ.
