India ranks third in the world in total greenhouse gas emissions—the result of having the second-largest population and being third largest in energy consumption.
Prof. Ashok Jhunjhunwala, President – IIT Madras Research Park (IITMRP) & IITM Incubation Cell delivered a keynote speech at the IEEE Region 10 Symposium (TENSYMP), one of the official annual conferences owned and organised by the IEEE REGION 10 (Asia Pacific) on “How soon can India get to Net-Zero?”.
Across his expansive address, he throws light on IITMRP’s ambitious move to tackle these fast-escalating energy challenges and move India towards achieving net-zero. IITMRP is creating a robust energy storage mechanism within its 11.42-acre campus that will allow it to operate primarily on energy generated from renewable sources.
On successful demonstration, this approach will help demonstrate the technology readiness and commercial viability of moving towards 100% RE in commercial complexes around the country and the world.
