The project aims to share knowledge and understand low-carbon energy systems

IIT Madras Research Park has collaborated with University of St Andrews, UK to aid India in achieving 100 per cent renewable energy. The project – funded by the UK government – aims to share knowledge and understand low-carbon energy systems and showcase examples of low-carbon energy in practice.

The partnership has already resulted in two successful joint seminars on the theme of ‘Towards 100 per cent Renewable Energy – Routes to Net Zero’ held in June 2021. The sessions led to discussions on different approaches and strategies to deliver low-carbon solutions. The joint collaboration will be further supported through leveraging the expertise of IIT Madras’ researchers, says a release from IIT Madras.


The objectives of the partnership include jointly undertaking research, sharing knowledge and understanding low-carbon energy systems as well as to share research and delivery expertise in the application of low-carbon technologies as part of an overall energy system, while working together to develop a model for low-carbon innovation ecosystems.

The key activities being taken up through this partnership include sharing research and knowledge exchange activities and exchange of emerging technologies in key areas of technology expertise on both sides.

This project would bring focus on a greater understanding of regional and national policy and delivery, the release said.
