About the FDP
Energy harvesting is essential all around the globe as it endorses eco-friendly technologies which branch out the energy supply to meet the global requirements. The substantial awareness on the energy resources and technologies involved, will promote the future research, and increase the mass production of energy and utilization. The blend of renewable sources like wind and solar energy have shown their efficacy in accomplishing the abovementioned objectives. This One Week International FDP promotes knowledge enhancement and research skills on energy harvesting. The sessions by the speakers from various national and international institutions like National Institute of Wind Energy and National Institute of Solar Energy foster the academia and industry connect. It leads to real time projects and inculcates the new technologies to accelerate renewable energy development in various sectors through individual and collaborative research.
