(NEST) was established in 1998 by Mr. D.T. Barki to address the basic lighting needs of 1.6 billion people who lack access to modern lighting technologies. In 2001 NEST launched the AISHWARYA® 6543 solar mini lamp to replace dirty and unsafe kerosene lamps being used in the rural households globally. NEST’s methodology is to apply its technical and management expertise to develop innovative solar lighting products and implement replicable projects at both micro and macro levels. NEST’s mission is to contribute significantly towards “eliminating light poverty” in the world. NEST is currently involved in high-purity quartz material research that is intended to produce low-cost solar silicon to pave the way for cost-effective lighting solutions to rural communities. AISHWARYA® 6343, a reliable and affordable lighting product for rural household applications, was the first product to be designed and developed at NEST in 2001. It is a solar mini lamp and NEST’s flagship product, which shot to global fame when NEST won the prestigious Ashden Light Award in 2005.
