Solar, wind, biomass, water and other energy sources are cleaner and perennial energy sources which the nature has provided for the use of mankind. The Centre has done pioneering work on solar thermal technologies and solar photovoltaic systems. Design of solar hot water systems, dryers, space heating / cooling system is performed by using state-of-art computer software. Similarly, solar photovoltaic systems and components are tested and complete design is provided for different load and different climatic conditions.
Recently work has been initiated in integrated solar, wind, diesel and their hybrid power systems. Test facility is being created for micro hydro and wind turbine systems. Extensive data base is available on meteorological parameters.
