Renewable Energies

Profile and Objective

The lab deals with teaching and practical education of students in the fields of renewable energy and energy management. The prospective engineers should be empowered to review, consolidate and extend their basic knowledge gained in various lectures on these subjects through practical applications. From experiments on fuel cell technology, photovoltaics to wind energy, the laboratory offers a wide range of practical applications in power generation and their conversion in a wide variety of systems.
