Energy and Power


Vision: To shape renewable energy and energy-efficiency policies in India using technology options to inform policy and solve energy issues.


Our research is focussed on expanding the use of clean energy and shaping India's renewable energy policy. We are also engaged in ensuring increased uptake of rooftop photovoltaic systems through improved mapping and analysis. Our studies aim to integrate high amounts of renewables into the grid; consequently, we are exploring options for grid-infrastructure improvement, smart-grid technologies, and enhancing operational and financial efficiencies of utilities. We are also examining technology scenarios for cleaner fuel and efficient practices in industries, to limit energy consumption without compromising on the quality of services.
