The aim is to generate 32 kW of power from whichever resource available and synchronise the smart grid to take the power in the system for use

Sources of energy

“The power to be generated from solar energy depends on the availability of sunlight while wind energy will be produced during nor’wester and tropical storm. The power from biogas will be generated from vegetable waste collected from the campus kitchen and outside markets,” the professor said. “In the integrated project, by the Centre for Excellence for Green Energy Systems (CEGESS) of the institute, we are aiming to generate 32 kW of power from whichever resource available and synchronise the smart grid to take the power in the system for use. Thus we will not be depending on one resource,” Roy said. Roy added that the world will be faced with serious situation with the depletion of hydrocarbon source. “Since coal-hydrocarbon based energy technology leads to environmental degradation, the future lies in renewable energy based technology,” he said.  The eminent scientist said, this being the age of smart technology, the institute needed to look forward.  “The government planners and academicians should be involved in big way as technology is changing very very fast.“The next 50 years will witness unimaginable change in technology, which cannot be static,” he added. – Courtesy
