With the world facing an energy crisis and the effects of climate change looming large, renewable energy studies and applications are set to play an extremely important role in all countries. This has resulted in an increased demand for specialists and engineers in renewable energy. There are very few institutes in India that offer a structured program to cover the diverse range of subjects to meet this demand. This program would provide the much needed talent for managing renewable energy technology in a sustainable manner. The program is designed to train students not only in renewable energy technologies but also in equally important areas such as energy infrastructure, energy economics, energy conservation and energy-environment interface. The program is structured to enable students to tackle practical problems of design and development of industrial applications and to pursue academic research. This course has been started in 2015. The total intake is 24.
