While BHEL will primarily produce Li-ion cells for ISRO and other strategic sector programmes, it can also suitably modify the space-grade cells—and thus leading to cost reduction—to meet the requirements of commercial applications.
Under this MoU, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) would transfer the technology to Tata Chemicals so that it may manufacture lithium-ion cells of varying capacity, size, energy density and power density—catering to a wide spectrum of power storage requirements.
Indian Space Research and Observatory (ISRO) presented the usage of space technology for solar energy. The space center has included solar radiation data on the existing observation system VEDAS (Visualization of Earth Observation Data and Archival system). ISRO also presented the rooftop potential for smart cities, a government initiative to develop sustainable cities with world-class facilities.
