At a time when the demand for solar projects is dwindling, the Gujarat Energy Research and Management Institute (GERMI) is developing a hybrid technology using solar and wind energy to generate power.
The institute is doing research on developing a hybrid rooftop solar-wind tower amid rising concerns over land utilisation and infrastructure costs.
According to GERMI, this will not only improve land utilisation, but also reduce the cost of transmission infrastructure. The institute is planning to conduct a trial run for the project this year.
“We are working on developing a hybrid technology that enables both solar and wind power generation at a single place. This will help in proper utilisation of land which is currently not being fully achieved,” said T Harinarayana, Director General, GERMI. Read More…
