The Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST) created the country’s first smart grid project, which will generate power from renewable sources of energy. That power generation from wind energy can be produced only during the tropical storm while the power to be produced through solar energy will depend on the sunlight availability. Vegetable wastes which can be collected from the markets and campus kitchen will help to generate power from biogas.The integrated project by the Centre for Excellence for Green Energy Systems (CEGESS) of the institute, they aim to produce 32 KW of power from any renewable resource available and then synchronise the smart grid to use the power in the system depending on the availability.
He expressed that this project will help to deal with the world which is to face a critical situation in future with the depletion of hydrocarbon sources. As the coal-hydrocarbon energy based technology results in environmental degradation, the future depends on the technology based on renewable energy sources.further added that the government planners and academicians should play a major role in the same since technology is changing very fast. The coming 50 years will witness drastic dynamic changes in technology. An eminent scientist revealed that the institute needs to look forward in the age of smart technology.The government planners and academicians should be involved in big way as technology is changing very very fast.“The next 50 years will witness unimaginable change in technology, which cannot be static.
