Renewable Energy

We envisioned a renewable energy-rich future in the early 1980s and developed our strength in technologies, policies, and market designs to promote it. We focus on establishing performance benchmarks and quality standards for renewable energy technologies. We also build research partnerships and programmes with industry and academia, to develop new solutions in solar, wind and biomass energy.

कोविड -19 वैक्सीन: विश्वसनीय कोल्ड चेन के लिए सौर ऊर्जा

Mr Amit Kumar

भारत में दुनिया के सबसे बड़े टीकाकरण कार्यक्रमों का संचालन होता आया है, इसलिए यहां कोविड -19 टीके को जरूरतमंदों तक पहुंचाने में बहुत ज़्यादा समस्या नहीं होगी। लेकिन वर्तमान परिदृश्य में इस पृष्ठभूमि के आधार पर केवल एक हद तक ही ऐसा निष्कर्ष निकाला जा सकता है। इस दृष्टि से यह ठीक ही है कि नीति आयोग की ओर से गठित एक टॉस्क फ़ोर्स वैक्सीन के वितरण यानी लॉजिस्टिक्स पर ध्यान केंद्रित कर रही है। इसमें ख़ास तौर पर कोल्ड चेन पर ध्यान देना शामिल है जो वैक्सीन की गुणवत्ता बरक़रार रखने में मददगार होगी।

Book Release: TERI Energy & Environment Data Diary and Yearbook (TEDDY) 2022-23

January 23, 2024
to January 23, 2024

TERI Energy & Environment Data Diary and Yearbook (TEDDY) is an annual publication brought out by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) since 1986. TEDDY presents latest information on energy supply sectors (coal and lignite, petroleum and natural gas, power and renewable energy sources), energy demand sectors (agriculture, industry, transport, residential, and commercial sectors), and environment (local and global). It seeks to support policy research and decision-making by providing policymakers and researchers with the data which can be used to develop actionable solutions.
