The project aims to improve information on the behaviour of solar radiation and how it translates into electricity production. The main scientific objectives of the proposed research are 1.Getting a better understanding atmospheric aerosols in India, in particular their wavelength-dependent absorption of solar radiation 2. Develop a method to forecast solar radiation a few hours ahead based on satellite cloud observations; 3. Develop a method to forecast solar radiation a day or two ahead based on an aerosol forecast; 4.
Analyzing implications of land-use-change coupled with climate change on surface runoff using a hydrological model: Case study of Goa
November 6, 2017
The overall objective for the proposed work is to assess the impact of the land-use-change and projected climatic changes on the near surface hydrology across a watershed in Goa. The specific objectives of the proposed work are to: 1. Develop a modelling protocol that couples future climate data for different scenarios with a hydrologic model simulating stream flow; 2. Apply the modelling protocol to the study area on the watershed scale. Calibrate and validate the model for the proposed study area;

The project aims to use established modelling techniques for spatial mapping of air pollutants in the city of Delhi using the data of existing monitoring stations. The spatial maps will provide information about air pollutant levels in all locations of the city. This will help in identification of air pollution hotspots in the city in order to take corrective actions. The project also aims to test the air quality models for forecasting at certain locations, which will help in generating public advisories.

The report provides insights and perspectives on how policy and businesses have to come together towards closing the loop. The report presents specific opportunities in four sectors that are cornerstones to the Indian economy – Agriculture, Automotive, Construction and Electronic & Electricals. These sectors have high potential for growth and are assessed for benefits accrued by adopting circular economy.

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
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.
