The sustainable development and maintain the
quality of life for a growing population are the main challenges of this
century. Energy production and use, particularly of fossil fuels, have a number
of environmental impactsincluding
air pollution, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.GHG emissions can be reduced by
increased energy efficiency, enhancing renewable/alternate energy sources;
Biomass, PV (photovoltaics),Solar technologies, wind energy. Energy and Environment
group aims to carry out research in multi-disciplinary and problem-oriented
areas like development of materials, products and processes which can
contribute in the abatement of GHG emission.
