Neeraj Dasila


Born and bred in a remote Himalayan hamlet, I learned early on how tech or even the smallest innovation can help improve the quality of life of people. With this vision, I studied Electrical Engineering at IIT Bombay and later worked on Connected Vehicles, Big Data Analytics & Electric Mobility as a product manager at TATA. Then, I moved to the Government of India to work on sustainable energy transitions, electrifying India, and Electric Vehicles. There I worked with NITI Aayog and the Prime Minister of India Office (PMO) as a nodal officer. In 2019, we founded SmartHelio to bring cutting-edge innovations from lab or research institutions to the energy industry and disrupt the clean-tech space with new-age ideas and solutions. Today, my aim is to build affordable & scalable solutions for all to tackle climate change.
