| Energy Access

This research and innovation programme will deliver new technologies and robust evidence on the critical barriers hampering systemic change and scaling up energy access, working with Southern researchers and entrepreneurs, to drive locally relevant innovation and delivery. This will have a transformative impact on deploying renewable energy solutions in developing countries, especially in South Asia and Africa.

Development of sludge free, clean, green and cost-effective technology at bench-scale for treatment of textile and dyeing industry effluent

July 18, 2017
| Waste
| Environment

The main objectives of this project are: 1. To develop a bench scale photocatalytic reactor (PCR) specifically targeting such organic dyes which are in dissolved state, highly toxic, recalcitrant/non-biodegradable in nature and constitution, present in the effluent of textile & dyeing Industry.

Development of polyolefin composites loaded with co-microencapsulated intumescent fire retardant system along with nanosized wear resistant additives

July 17, 2017

In this study a high temperature charring agent i.e. propane terephthalamide will be synthesized. This will be co-micro encapsulated with APP in melamine-formaldehyde resin. The microcapsules thus developed will be blended along with nanosized silicon nitride in LLDPE, PP, LDPE and HDPE. The microcapsules will enhance the fire retardancy. Thus, the developed blend will have effective fire retardancy.

| Energy
| Renewable Energy

The project undertakes a comprehensive study on the greening of Andaman & Nicobar and Lakshadweep Islands. The objective is to study the options in de-carbonization of the energy portfolio for these islands and outline strategies for moving towards a low carbon pathway, in line with India's INDCs.

Replacing kerosene for solar in households for lighting

June 30, 2017
| Energy Access

The project aims to develop a business case for redirecting / re-routing kerosene subsidies in India towards the solar product value chain, and in essence, to replace the use of kerosene for basic lighting at the household level by making comparable solar based lighting alternatives available and affordable.

TERI and IGES, along with interested stakeholders from India and Japan, will operationalize the Japan-India Technology Matchmaking Platform (JITMAP) which was initiated in the Financial Year 2016 to promote the dissemination of Japanese low carbon technology in India. Specifically the following key activities will be conducted in the Financial Year 2017: (i) Information collection and sharing; (ii) Feasibility studies; (iii) Dissemination and capacity building; (iv) Outreach activities.

Transforming Pathardi Village into a Model Village

June 13, 2017
| Health & Nutrition

TERI has been extensively working in Pathardi village, Mokhada in Palghar for over 4 years implementing several projects to make the village sustainable in terms of food, energy and water security. Creating better livelihood opportunities for the villagers of Pathardi, especially the women, are important in order to achieve the broader objectives of the project. Sustainable livelihood generation ensures a better shock and stress adaptability, better nutrition for the family members, better access to health services and the resultant low morbidity, thus leading to a better quality of life.
