About the University

Located in Gandhinagar, the capital of Gujarat, PDEU is spread over an impressive campus of about 100 acres and offers necessary infrastructure of a world-class institute. About the University Pandit Deendayal Energy University, Gandhinagar, is a domain specific university in the field of energy education and research. The university is recognized by UGC with “A” grade NAAC accreditation. PDEU addresses the need for trained and specialized human resource predominantly for Oil & Gas, Solar and Nuclear sectors worldwide. It intends to expand the opportunities for students and professionals to develop intellectual knowledge-base with leadership skills to compete in the global arena. This objective is being addressed through a number of specialized and well planned undergraduate and postgraduate energy education programs and intensive research initiatives.

 

Solar Research and Development Center

The Solar Research & Development Center (SRDC) at PDEU was established as a centre of excellence by the government node in 2013, has been working on the development of fundamental and applied research on solar photovoltaic, solar fuel, fuel cell and energy storage. Also, there are research projects undertaken in the area of Concentrated Solar Thermal, concentrated Solar Photovoltaics and Balance of Systems for off-grid and distributed solar. With tremendous efforts in R & D at the module level, field data validation, R & D in CSP, Energy policy and analysis, SRDC aims to be one of the strongest and the best research centres for executing advanced research and providing suitable solutions for harnessing cheaper solar energy. Moreover, SRDC is highly involved in monitoring the performance of the multi-technology 1MW PV power plant at PDEU. A PV Module Production line with R&D capability and of annual capacity of 45 MW is expected to be operational by early 2022.

About the Conference

The rapid increase in the energy consumption and the demand of the fossil fuels encourages the world to move towards the other clean energy sources i.e. Photovoltaic, Hydrogen generation, Fuel cells and Batteries. Solar Research and Development Center and the Department of Solar Energy has taken an initiative by organizing an International Conference on Nanomaterials for Energy Conversion and Storage application. The objective is to exchange information in order to help raise the awareness of participants to the potential new opportunities, the new challenges and the new risks posed by nanotechnology in the field of Energy Conversion and Storage. This conference will bring the researchers and industries to a common platform for sharing the knowledge. This platform will also be an opportunity to discuss the potential contributions of nanomaterials to sustainable development of energy conversion and storage devices, and to discuss how to achieve a reasonable distribution of benefits, risks and role of responsible stewardship in addressing energy storage applications.
