The research center aims to provide a unique opportunity to research scholars, graduate and undergraduate students to work on projects developed in partnership with industry and focused on solving real-world problems in the domain of energy management. Industry promoted projects will help the students in gaining a better understanding and perspective of the real-world requirements and help in translating their theoretical knowledge to tangible outputs. The opportunity to interact with the experts from industry will help in preparing a next generation of technocrats well suited for academia and industry. Our main objective is to cultivate a healthy sharing of knowledge between industry and academia through active engagement in projects, industry specific workshops, short-term courses, conferences and seminars. The research center aims to reach operational self-sustainability through the funds garnered through industrial projects and by conducting short-term courses and industry specific workshops.
