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.
A two day refresher course on solar energy for the students and faculty of DTU was organized at SEC in March 2013. Students of DTU are also pursuing projects at SEC. As a result of sustained R&D activities pursued by the Ministry, under various programmes, so far 10,135 villages and hamlets have been provided with electricity, 46.55 lakh biogas plants have been installed, biomass gasifiers of a total capacity of 16.79 MW have been commissioned and photovoltaic systems of aggregate capacity of 124.67 MW have been deployed for providing energy in off-grid mode.
