New Delhi: The Jamia Millia Islamia will work with the government-owned National Institute of Solar Energy (NISE) to provide solutions to the industry and other sectors in the country in meeting their objective of energy efficiency and shift to green energy.

Advance Power Electronics Research Lab of Jamia Millia Islamia’s Department of Electrical Engineering today signed an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with NISE under which the two sides will share their expertise and resources to meet the national objective of green energy and power efficiency.

The MoU was inked in the presence of JMI Vice Chancellor, Prof Talat Ahmad,
With this MoU students of JMI will be able to work at NISE and test engineers of NISE will get training at Advance Power Electronics Research Lab, Department of Electrical Engg. The employability of students will increase and JMI will be known for solving problems faced by the industry nationally and internationally.

JMI’s solar lab has state-of-the-art equipment for research work in the area of Power electronics and its application like Solar Inverter, Smart Grid, among others. It gets power from Solar Power Plant installed on its roof. The lab also has a solar inverter developed and designed by it. NISE which is under Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has facilities of testing solar products. JMI PhD scholars can now use the high end testing equipment at NISE to further their research work.

Speaking on the occasion, Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Talat Ahmad said that it was a significant moment for the university as it will not only prove beneficial for both the partners but will also help meet the country’s energy demand.

He said that at the initial stage solar set up might be expensive but with better research and technology it will be cost-effective in the long run, especially, given the kind of push by the Government of India to encourage the use of solar power. Eventually other green energy sources like wind, geo-thermal and ocean waves will also play a significant role in power generation.
