Training programmes for all types of renewable energy are organized in this training session
| India is developing in renewable energy, hence it needs more research and development programme for scaling up the technology and production. Focusing on the issue and its needs the R&D Programme of the Ministry of New & Renewable Energy supports development of technologies for providing alternative source of energy in the country including rural areas. Also, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Solar Energy Centre (SEC) and Delhi Technological University (DTU) has been signed on 22nd May, 2012.The MoU between SEC and DTU envisages collaborative research through joint supervision of M. Tech and Ph. D thesis, practical courses at SEC for DTU students in specialized areas of solar energy, joint refresher courses for the industry and organizing conferences, symposium & workshops on the cutting edge renewable energy technologies. So far SEC has collaborated with DTU in organizing the Second International Symposium on Concentrated Solar Power in June 2012.
To scale up the technology and research & development of renewable energy for large production Ministry of New and Renewable Energy is implementing R&D programmes. Rural areas are more emphasized, as renewable energy is more needed in these areas. Courses on solar energy are organized in villages so, that they them selves can generate renewable energy for utilization. Training programmes for all types of renewable energy are organized in this training session.
