India is fast moving towards its target of installing 175 GW of renewable energy by 2022, but its benefit can be reaped only through cost-effective storage capacities. The Centre has, therefore, stepped up efforts to find solutions which can be scalable and reach the common man.
Underlining India’s renewable energy growth, the science & technology ministry has recently set up a clean energy knowledge network, involving four R&D centres, to provide a strong backbone of research technologies for developing renewable energy conservation and storage facilities and equipment.
The four centres which will contribute to the development of national research network for next-generation materials for energy storage are IIT Delhi, IIT Bombay, IISc Bangalore and Nonferrous Materials Technology Development Centre (NFTDC), Hyderabad.
These centres constitute knowledge networks of more than 20 elite institutions and 80 research personnel working on materials and next generation devices in batteries, super capacitors, solid state hydrogen storage and fuel cells. Read More
