Center for Study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP), a non-profit think tank, is building a tool that can help identify most suitable rooftops to install solar rooftop photovoltaic (RTPV) plants in Bengaluru.
CSTEP will help Bengaluru Electricity Supply Company (BESCOM) as a technology partner by using the aerial Light Detection & Ranging (LiDAR) technology to develop high-resolution three-dimensional maps of the city.
