Since its inception, the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has been
undertaking research and development activities through budgetary support. In addition,
extramural projects in renewable energy are also being supported by agencies other than
MNRE, such as Department of Secondary and Higher Education, Indian Council for
Agricultural Research, Department of Science and Technology (DST), Defence Research &
Development Organization (DRDO) and Department of Bio-Technology (DBT). R&D
support in renewables has resulted in achievements in many areas. Putting biomass on
technology ladder for various applications, technologies for bio CNG, development of a
number of solar technologies, industry driven hydrogen energy research are some of the
shining examples. However, India’s research and development accomplishment is not cited in
a manner, as it deserves and has not been presented in a consolidated manner.
2. MNRE has initiated an exercise for developing a compendium of India’s research
accomplishments in renewable energy area. Five areas viz, solar PV, solar thermal, wind
energy, biomass energy and new technologies are proposed to be covered. The Ministry has
written directly to institutions and organizations directly involved in renewable energy
research to provide inputs regarding their achievements. In order to ensure that the
information is exhaustive and representative of the research accomplishments of the country,
it is proposed to seek inputs from all individuals, institutions and organizations who have
contributed in renewable energy research.
3. In view of the above, we request all those who have contributed in renewable energy
research and have not been approached individually by the Ministry, to provide inputs in the
enclosed format. In addition to information as sought in the enclosed format, other inputs as
you consider important would be welcome. This will not only help us in correctly reflecting
contributions, but will also help in shaping research and development roadmap for
renewables in India.
In order to coordinate the study, a core group has been constituted in the Ministry.
The information may be sent to any one of the core group member on the following
i. Shri Anubhav Uppal, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, ph: 9868262681
ii. Shri Dipesh Pherwani, email: email@example.com, ph: 9560999291
