The SyGuru Story


In 2001, the scenario of global energy crisis motivated an emerging entrepreneur Mr. Som Derashri to have a vision of creating & building an organization that would comprehensively address all the needs of the energy conservation in any plant, thereby reducing India’s dependence on energy import.  Armed with an Engineering degree from BITS Pilani, the strength of being an IIM – Ahmedabad Alumni, and a rich and diverse industry experience in top management & project positions, he formed an energy-auditing firm “Academy for Conservation of Energy” (ACE) at Baroda with the motivation of turning his vision into reality.  From the beginning, the company was founded on the principles of assimilating knowledge, encouraging new ideas and merging the assimilated knowledge with great ideas to provide solutions that drive progress for clients and enhance lives through energy efficient solutions.  Today, Academy for Conservation of Energy has earned International recognition and is a well-known and respected name in the India market


In 2004, the sister concern of Academy for Conservation of Energy was formed, SyGuru Innovators Pvt. Ltd. (SIPL), wherein began the manufacturing of innovative energy saving gadgets that was aimed at bridging the gap between what was available in the market and what the industry required in terms of energy conservation and efficiency.


For over a decade, we have been a company that is focused on implementing great ideas to provide cost-effective-energy-efficient – sustainable solutions.  We recognize the importance of nurturing relationships that reflect our culture of unwavering ethics and mutual respect.  It’ll come as no surprise, then, that apart from retaining our existing clients, 90% of our new clients are referred to us by our patrons.


At the SyGuru Group, we believe our responsibilities extend beyond business. That is why we behave ethically and honestly in all our interactions – with our clients, our partners and our employees.
