Petroleum Conservation Research Association (PCRA), set up under the aegis of Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas, Government of India, is a national government agency engaged in promoting fuel conservation and energy efficiency in various sectors of the economy like transport, domestic, agricultural and industrial. It also helps the government in formulating policies and strategies for petroleum conservation, aimed at reducing excessive dependence of the country on oil imports.
Fossil fuels are a depleting, non-renewable resource. With the increase in global demand, there are two solutions to address the issue. One- find an alternate fuel to replace the fossil fuels in the long run. Two- Conserve the fossil fuels with efficient operations to save for the future generations. Promoting conservation is quite important and the need to educate and inculcate the idea of efficient use of natural resources. And the best way to get this idea ingrained is to start early and young and incorporate the need amongst the kids and youth.
PCRA student competitions is a platform set up by PCRA to bring together students from schools across India to bring in a sense of responsibility in young minds to conserve nature. Neumeric Technologies Corporation is proud to be associated in this endeavor of PCRA to promote fuel conservation.
Neumeric Technologies Corporation bagged a prestigious National level project of PCRA for developing the dedicated website for PCRA competitions (http://www.pcracompetitions.org/). Neumeric developed mobile applications for the PCRA Competitions for both on Android and iPhone platforms.
The key focus while executing the project was end user experience, since this involved high interaction with students. Picking up from past experience, Neumeric’s team implemented a scalable and agile development architecture for the development of the web and mobile applications
This further underlines the expertise and capabilities of Neumeric to execute critical government projects providing complete one stop comprehensive solutions and contributing to the country’s efforts to promote a greener tomorrow.
