Centre for Energy & Environment

In the upcoming future, global energy systems will experience major modifications and the sustainability of the same will corroborate to be of the high significance for the environment and society. Centre is at cutting edge in north-western India when it comes to research infrastructure and academics in the area of Renewable Energy.

Study programs and its structure

The Centre presently offers following programs to candidates who have completed bachelors and master studies:
1. M.Tech.- Renewable Energy [Syllabus and details]
The M.Tech. is two-year program of four semesters and was started since 2012-13. The program is being offered as per the mandate of Ministry of New and Renewable Energy-Government of India, New Delhi (http://mnre.gov.in/) for capacity building in the area of Renewable Energy. Successful completion of this course would prepare the students to join prestigious academic institutions/universities and industries in relevant areas.

Program covers main aspects of renewable energy systems and has workload of 72 credit points in four semesters. First semester takes a closer look at core courses along with hands-on application-oriented experiments. The second semester offers specific sustainable energy technologies, allowing students to concentrate on theoretical subjects in each area of renewable energy system. Third and fourth semesters are for seminar and dissertation work. During the course of study, students will gain extensive knowledge and expertise in the area of sustainable renewable energy technologies.

The aim of the program is to provide students with technological knowledge, know-how and also ensuring that they gain an understanding of the regulatory framework relevant to the application of the renewable energy technologies while performing development and implementation tasks in the subsequent professional career.

2. Ph.D. Program
Energy is not just vital for all life forms, but also for the comfort of the modern-day world. Centre performs research in all areas of the renewable energy with a special focus on sustainable energy systems and energy efficient buildings. Energy efficiency, passive heating and cooling, sustainable buildings, solar PV, wind and bioenergy are some of the thrust technological areas we are specialized in. Our research spans and is build-on strong competences from energy efficient buildings to renewable energy technologies.

The Ph.D. program is poised to promote typically the cross-disciplinary research in the area of renewable energy and environment through hands-on training and live-projects/ experiments involving sophisticated equipments and techniques in the laboratories. Research is organized in strategic program and carried out in co-operation with national and international research institutes as well as with the industry and users of the renewable energy technology. Site visits, participation in-ongoing projects, simulations, interaction with industry and policy makers at state and national, international level with leading Institutions are well addressed during the course.
Following are major thrust areas of research:

Research areas
1) Energy efficient buildings 2) Solar thermal applications
3) Passive cooling systems 4) Hybrid renewable energy systems
