About REtopia 2015: Technical Fest by Teri University
REtopia is derived from the English word 'Utopia' referring to an ideal situation or state. The word REtopia extends this concept to the realm of energy. The word REtopia aims to refer to a world which empowers itself from clean energy sources & lives up to the idea of sustainable development.
REtopia was started by students from Department of Energy and Environment at TERI University in the year 2011 as an annual technical conclave. The motive behind the fest is to bring together students, people from academics, industry and government to emphasize the need of clean technology on techno-commercial and environmental aspects.
Inclusive growth of a nation depends on the per capita energy use of that nation. For development to be sustainable, delivery of energy services needs to be secure and have low environmental impacts. Renewable energy sources play a vital role in providing energy services in a sustainable manner and, in particular, in mitigating climate change. We the renewable energy engineers strive towards achieving this global goal with a long vision to mitigate and sustain global harmony as par with nation’s total GDP growth and energy security.
