Union Minister of State for Ministry of Power and New & Renewable Energy, Raj Kumar Singh, presided over the fourth Foundation Day celebrations of National Institute of Solar Energy (NISE), at its campus in Gurugram, Haryana on October 27.
Addressing scientists, research staff and other guests during the event, Singh said that NISE should aim to establish itself as the World’s leading institute in the field of solar energy through its world class R&D, Testing & Certification and Training, and emerge as a ‘Centre of Excellence’. NISE should strive further and set up regional centers for research and development in solar energy, Shri Singh added.
“There is no scarcity of funds for R&D activities”, Singh said, complimenting the scientists on the number of innovative prototype projects developed at NISE. Further, the Minister said that NISE should work quickly and patent some of the products, and encouraged scientists to work out strategies for public-private collaborations to reach end-users.
Singh also launched the Automation System for Customer Service Cell for Testing Facilities at NISE. He was presented with a set of four books on Solar Energy published by NISE.
The Minister was particularly impressed with the solar powered RO water dispensing ATM, and the solar powered milk chilling unit. He urged NISE to work with central and state agriculture ministries, along with the National Dairy Development Board to take up demonstration projects of the solar technologies developed at NISE.
