Workshop on Solar Energy Technologies for Sustainable Development @ NIT Tiruchirappalli [Apr 29-May 11]: Apply by Apr 26: Expired

Workshop Solar Energy Technologies Sustainable Development NIT TiruchirappalliAbout

India needs a solar power capacity of 100 GW by 2022. To meet this target, it has to build-up the solar power capacity by 4 times than the existing one. As per 2015 Paris agreement on climate change, India has committed to cut down the greenhouse gas emissions. Adopting innovative solar solutions would help India to reduce its carbon footprint.
A lot of research works are being undertaken nationally and internationally in solar energy applications in the area of photovoltaic, photothermal, solar desalination, solar refrigeration and cooling, daylighting and passive solar applications. This two week workshop aims to impart scientific and research knowledge on the state of art techniques for designing and analysing the performance of sustainable solar energy systems.
The workshop also helps the participants to familiarize the tools such as MATLAB, TRANSYS and SolTrace, which are used for computational and heat transfer analysis of solar energy conversion systems. This workshop will be useful to those who are planning to start the research work in this area.
