Solar Energy will play a major and long term solution to the problems of climate change and energy crisis. Solar PV and Solar Thermal will play a vital role in fulfilling the needs of the growing population.
Both Nuclear and Coal based thermal plants are untenable and not appropriate for the long run. With other renewable energy sources like wave and geo thermal energy which are carbon free at a nascent stage, Solar provides the most complete and mature carbon free solution moving forward.
Along with the developments in CPV (Concentrated Photo Voltaic) and multi-junction diodes to harvest the electromagnetic spectrum from the Sun, several new innovations are being worked on to improve the efficiency of thin film technology which is aptly suited for the Indian solar conditions.
With innovations in Solar technology and cost reduction efforts being pursued rigorously with inverters and BOS (Balance Of Systems) the mass adoption of Solar systems is not too far to address the growing needs of a developing nation.
In addition to address the space problem, Solar PV and Thermal applications can be combined to create a Solar PV-Thermo system to generate both hot water and electricity for the Indian market.
GREPI aims to provide cutting edge technology and innovations to pursue low Carbon and no Carbon technologies for the next millennium.
