NAGPUR: "With depleting conventional sources, the need for alternative and renewable sources of energy is increasing day by day. Unless scientists develop not just workable but scientifically scalable models in renewable energy sources and device for effective storage of these resources, India cannot progress in the field of non-conventional energy," said SP Kane, vice-chancellor of Nagpur University.
Kane was speaking at the inaugural session of a weeklong workshop or short term training programme (STTP) on the subject 'Advancements in Renewable Energy and Energy Storage Devices', organized by the department of electrical engineering at Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology (VNIT) on Monday.
Kane said that among all the sections of society the contribution of scientists is the maximum as they work to solve the day to day problems of common people and make their lives comfortable. He called for VNIT scientists and all others attending the programme to work for developing newer sources of energy.
