MNRE is a joint venture between the Government of India and the European Union to make ways for private service providers to initiate bio-energy projects sustained under the aegis of the Ministry of New & Renewable Energy.
Quokka Labs fulfilled the aspirations of GOI and EU by preparing a robust and scalable web application to make the entire proposal submission, approval, and subsidy release process between the developer and the MNRE hierarchy paperless and hassle-free. The aim was to seamlessly make both the parties aware of each other’s progress and hence benefit from avoiding confusion to implement the project proposal successfully.
Promotion of Biomass-based Co-generation in Sugar Mills and other industries in the country. Establish Biomass Producing projects in operations by releasing suitable Central Financial Assitance ( CFA).
The program aims to establish biomass energy recovery in power grids. For starting the installation of large-scale projects, MNRE releases CFA and Grants-in-aid.
Building the Bio-Energy Application Portal required realizing the existing application processing method and singling out the loopholes arising. Some challenges faced were:
Both parties suffered from the know-how of each other’s processing work. It resulted in frustration and delay in multiple stages of application approval.
Any application submitted by a private party is bound to have one or several crucial pieces of information missing, as users may not know what and where to put it.
Since the project involves step-by-step sanctioning, commissioning, and subsidy release processes, approvals at different levels are inevitable. Here the application is to be accessed by various stakeholders in the ministry. Data may be lost or morphed at any stage.
The paperwork application often led to files getting stuck at some point due to slight faults or delays at several stages of this procedure.
The design of the portal came out after an in-depth analysis of various successful application management systems. The features support seamless management through continuous communication between the administration and the applicant.
The portal is easy to understand and use. The how-to guide and learn more section help guide both customers and installers through the entire process.
Registrations are as easy as opening an email account
It is the central repository where all the documents are stored chronologically.
Efficient application tracking and monitoring at every stage.
The portal notifies the users (Consumers, Installers, DISCOMs, and SNAs) at every stage of the process via SMS and email.
The portal is accessible from all the latest devices.
Due to the digitized system, the end-to-end management of the application processing will significantly reduce the time taken for the approval of any project. Moreover, the digital platform allows easily sharing of suggestions or comments with the applicant.
The efficient workflow reduces the tedious task of sifting through paperwork for approval.
Repeated steps have been streamlined and optimized, reducing the overall implementation time.
The steps have enabled self-service.
Digitization of forms & workflow has minimized paper processes considerably.
Digitized workflow ensures an error-free process.
Data stored in the portal may assist the development of new schemes and policies.
We enhanced the user experience by aesthetically designing the portal’s user interface with intelligent UI/UX design while keeping usability and utility paramount.
I can very honestly recommend the company without any "buts". There are a few important, and I would say, unique features of the team - they know how to listen, they understand what they hear, they are capable to plan the work, they do the work on time with flying colors. And moreover, they are gentle, nice people, it is just nice to be with them. I worked with the company for around 3 years, and we developed useful products for Government of India, managing major programmes for implementing renewable energy projects. I was a Team Leader of the project EU India Technical Cooperation Project: Energy.
Team Leader- EU India Technical Cooperation: Energy
What impressed me most is their understanding of the exact requirements, and we’re very sure with the right solutions they quickly respond to for fulfilling those. Our discussions with them helped us refine our concept node..
Consultant EU India Technical Cooperation: Energy
Their willingness to adapt to a moving target was outstanding. We had to make changes halfway through the project. Sunny and Sanchit will go to any end to find project solutions overseas.
If you need a team that reflects excellence in its project management, then Quokka Labs is it. The inconsistencies they pointed out till the project's success couldn’t have been better. And this is what makes them stronger and reliable as a competition.
