VISION & MISSION
Our vision is to become a leading solar energy research institute in the world, contributing to global sustainable development.
To provide energy solutions through non-conventional energy resources like solar, Wind, biomass, Microhydel systems.
To reach the people of rural, hilly and border areas where conventional grid is not connected.
To develop and commercialize solar technologies suited for urban and tropical applications, and support industry development and the energy transformation towards sustainable development.
Renewable Energy sources and technologies have potential to provide solutions to the long standing energy problems being faced by India. The renewable energy sources like wind energy, solar energy, geothermal energy, biomass energy, small and mini hydro as well as fuel cell technology can be used to overcome energy shortage issue. Hence, to meet the energy requirement for such a fast growing economy, the next 10 to 15 years will require an assured supply of 3-4 times more energy than the total energy consumed today. Renewable Energy is one of the options to meet this requirement. In India, for the last two and half decades there has been a vigorous pursuit of activities relating to research, development, demonstration, production and application of a variety of renewable energy technologies for use in different sectors. The state needs to take a major role to fill the energy gap and promote research in renewable energy with emphasis on locally suited renewable energy technologies. As such NERERL in association with AEDA has the following objectives:
To tap the potential of renewable energy sources and reduces the use of conventional grid energy.
To promote local products to meet the aim “Vocal for Local”.
To generate employability to the village areas by providing them an opportunity through electrification by solar systems.
To provide technological solutions to the problems faced by rural, hilly people of the state.
