About the FDP
Energy is the driving force behind all economic activities. Consequently the ever increasing population and associated energy requirements to meet the increasing living standard have become a matter of great concern. Solar technologies use the sun’s energy to provide electricity, heat, light, hot water, and even cooling for homes, businesses, and industry.
The aim of this FDP is to impart research skills to the researchers and teachers to improve the quality of research in the area of solar energy and its application. This programme will bring a positive transformation among the faculty members towards research work and enable the participants to develop competence in understanding the recent advances in solar energy systems.
