March 1, 2011 to
June 23, 2014The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), GoI has sanctioned funds to TERI for carrying out long-term performance evaluation and development of new designs of Solar Lighting Systems in TERI's Solar Lighting Laboratory located in the TERI University campus. TERI has been conducting extensive testing and evaluation of a wide variety of Solar Lighting Systems with the commitment to evaluate and find cost-effective and cutting-edge solar lighting solutions largely as a part of its Lighting a Billion Lives' initiative.
September 1, 2010 to
May 22, 2014TERI would help TCL to develop a sustainable green cover over overburden dumps besides improving other physical measures using mycorrhizal technology in various plant species of economic importance so that:
1/ The area is converted to better substrates for plant growth;
2/ The tree/plant species used for afforestation could be identified based on economic importance(herbaceous plants, foliage plants, fuel wood, pulp and paper, etc.);
European responses to climate change: Deep emissions, reductions and mainstreaming of mitigation and adaptation
January 1, 2010 to
May 19, 2014The RESPONSES project addresses EU policy challenges by: developing new global low emissions scenarios, placing EU efforts in a global context; building an approach for assessing EU policies against mitigation and adaptation objectives and for developing alternative policy options; applying this framework in five EU policy sectors (water and agriculture, biodiversity, regional development/ infrastructure, health and energy), linked by a set of cross-sectoral integrative activities; and synthesizing the results to new policy strategies.
October 1, 2008 to
April 3, 2014
TERI's role in the project is to develop concept papers on the following topics along with its project partners:
1. Regulatory reforms and urban governance
2. Energy-efficient technology in industry, water, housing,
transport, cooking etc.
3. Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), which includes
studies on urban and peri-urban forestry for carbon
sequestration, bio-diesel for rural and urban energy
October 15, 2013 to
March 13, 2014
The main objective of this project is to raise awareness on opportunities of joint crediting mechanism and Japanese low-carbon technologies.
August 5, 2011 to
February 3, 2014
Ministry of Shipping has engaged TERI to review the Tariff Guidelines of 2005. The main objectives are:
Extending solar Lighting Service to 45 villages in selected Indian States under REC's Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative
April 4, 2011 to
January 15, 2014TERI and the Rural Electrification Corporation (REC) is collaborating to extend clean lighting options under the aegis of LaBL initiative to further REC's corporate social responsibility and better the lives of the rural communities. Centralized solar charging stations will be set up covering 45 villages in Assam, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.
Evaluation of maize genotypes for silicon induced abiotic stress- drought tolerance and revealing the mechanism behind stress tolerance
March 25, 2008 to
January 3, 2014Maize is considered as a promising option for diversifying agriculture in India. Under high altitude temperate regions, with small growing season (3-4 months) and limited irrigation water availability, the reduction in the yield is much higher. Since opportunities are limited for further expansion of maize area in these regions, the future increases in maize supply will be achieved through understanding and adopting the practices which can reduce the losses of abiotic and biotic stresses. Hence working for drought tolerance under such conditions is mandatory.
Application of ‘Green Bio Energy City’ Concept in Trincomalee City based on Integrated Solid Waste Management
September 23, 2011 to
January 3, 2014The main objectives of this project are to:
Reduce climate change by reducing urban garbage accmulation and reduce methane generation;
Formulate a co-operative plan to manage domestic waste by empowering grass-root level community according to the win-win concept;
Programme stakeholders for the project sustainability;
Share the experience with other interested cities through city-to-city programme; and
Create a national climate change reducing policy by sharing proven experiences with the country policy-makers.
