About the programme


Energy has always been a major component in the day-to-day life of humans. The paradox when dealing with energy is that it is needed for man to live and develop, and at the same time, unplanned developmental activities focusing more on fossil fuels is affecting the environment he is living in. Two problems arise with the increasing energy consumption: firstly, pollution associated with energy consumption increases leading to unknown changes in world climate that could have tremendous repercussions, and secondly, fossil fuels commonly used are not renewable. Even if people are concerned about the future of the planet, power of money and need for economic growth dominate the debate. India has the potential to emerge as a key global player in renewable energy by shifting the energy policy focusing on renewable sources of energy and also by positioning India’s expertise / knowledge and making it available for the developing world. Studies have been made on the different resources, nuclear power and the friendly environmental energies like solar, wind and others in order to replace the fossil fuels and more generally the non-renewable energies.
