The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has invited proposals for research and development (R&D) and demonstration in the field of solar energy. The proposals have been sent to start-ups, industries, and R&D laboratories. Organizations or institutions that are involved in the research, development, and demonstration in solar power-related areas can also apply.
Some of the areas into which organizations should be performing R&D include, the development of a process for the segregation of different components of a PV module at the end of its life, the recycling of glass, the development of grid-tied inverters suitable for India’s grid and operating environmental condition, and the development of hybrid inverters of capacity up to 500 kVA.
Apart from these, other areas of research also include the development of electronics for high tension grid stabilization by incorporating storage batteries, the development of high efficiency (six inches into six inches) perovskite solar cells on single and multi-crystalline silicon substrate Read more
