Welspun to set up solar lab in Gujarat
Welspun Energy Ltd. (WEL) is partnering with Gujarat Energy Research & Management Institute (GERMI) for the advancement of solar technology in India. The organisation will be setting up a lab at GERMI where different solar technologies will be studied for their performance in Indian terrain and climatic conditions.
The MoU was signed with Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University (PDPU), during the recently held Vibrant Gujarat’s International Conference for Academic Institutions (ICAI) 2013. Welspun Energy will be designing and offering internship programs to students of PDPU’s solar program. With WEL’s large solar and wind projects under development, it is expected that students participating in this internship program will be able to witness the entire project development cycle of a clean energy power plant. Skilled manpower in this field is scarce and through such initiatives the organisation will be able to help students transform into specialised resources.
Vineet Mittal, Co-Founder and Managing Director, Welspun Energy stated, “Solar energy industry in India is still young, with some amount of research carried out in India for standardisation and technology selection. However, we need to be ready for the next phase of growth and that calls for a greater focus on research and building relevant skill sets in our young. As an extension to society, we want to support leading institutions in India and foster indigenous capability.”
A student exchange program has also been initiated by WEL with the Singapore Management University.
