Clean energy technology refers to any process, product or service that reduces negative environmental impacts through significant energy efficiency improvements, sustainable use of resources or environmental protection activities. Clean energy technologies also endure economic growth by enhancing the supply of energy demand and tackling environmental challenges and their impacts due to the use of other conventional sources of energy. Clean technology includes a broad range of technology related to recycling, renewable energy (wind power, solar power, biomass, hydropower, geothermal, biofuels, etc), information technology, green transportation, electric motors, green chemistry, lightning, greywater, etc.
The proposed event will basically focus on the clean energy technologies, such as solar energy, wind power, biofuels, biomass, hydropower, hydrogen energy, clean coal technology and related environmental issues. India is one of the largest energy producing countries from renewable sources. In the electricity sector, renewable energy (excluding large hydro) accounted for 20% of the total installed power capacity (69.02 GW). A brief description and fundamentals of these renewable energy technologies will be discussed in the proposed course. This event will focus on energy efficiency, environmentally sustainable technologies and will also discuss on Indian renewable energy scenario focusing mainly the North-eastern region. Different clean energy technologies will be discussed broadly such as: Solar energy deals with conversion of energy from sunlight into electricity either directly by photovoltaic (PV), indirectly by concentrated solar or a combination of both. Concept and application of both this technologies will be discussed in a broader sense. Moreover, the working principles, utilization and application of solar flat plate collector, solar pond, solar distillation unit and solar refrigeration units will be conferred in detail. Wind power and its generation of electricity from naturally occurring wind will be broadly discussed along with its uses, applications and future scopes. The course also includes biomass energy utilization, their different sources and uses as a renewable energy. Biofuels which includes biodiesels, biogas, producer gas, natural gas, their production and utilization in various fields will be broadly covered in the course. Lectures related to gasification technologies i.e. fixed bed and fluidized bed gasification process will be delivered. Moreover, the event will also focus on applications of clean alternative fuels in IC engines. Hydro-electric power generation i.e. harnessing electricity from running water and their different types will be discussed. Furthermore, the discussion session will also cover various aspects of hybrid energy systems, energy storages, different challenges in clean energy technologies which involves rapid increase in energy consumption, dependent on the imports of oil and gas from foreign countries, electricity shortages, and climatic changes. The discussion session will also cover cost analysis of different clean technologies, their advantages, clean energy scenario in India particularly in North East India and their future prospects.
