Research & Development 

We have established Solar PV Centers of Excellence & Labs for research in multiple institutes. Our Solar Lab features the latest advancements in solar technology and shall leverage the Internet of Things and cloud technologies for the collection of data for research purpose. The system is designed in such a way that researchers can focus on design and engineering, as the measurement is automated and it is easy to download and analyze data. In addition to encouraging paper publishing and innovation in solar, we use these labs for testing, benchmarking and advancing our SaveGen series advanced Solar PV Solutions.



Key Objectives of Lab

  • Development of products, design methods, installation practices and maintenance practices to improve kWh output and reliability of Solar Power Plants

  • Cloud monitoring and detection of maintenance issues in solar power plants from analytics of data collected from sites across india

  • Publication of performance data and benchmarking of different Cleantech Technologies

  • Provide professional training to Industry and Academia in Cleantech Sector

  • Facilitate Industry Academia Interaction in Cleantech Sector
