  • SESI conducts workshops at NIT Silchar to promote use of Solar heat and light

    The Solar Energy Society of India (SESI) recently conducted some workshops at NIT, Silchar with an aim to spread awareness about the fuel crisis faced by the world and to suggest and promote the use of alternate energy sources like solar light and solar heat which can be used for the generation of electricity.

    It is well known fact that the world is headed towards a disaster as our fuel reserves are depleting with each passing day. The world needs to soon find some efficient, alternative ways to meet it's energy demands.

    With this workshop, SESI aims to spread this awareness while it works to achieve total solar autonomy in India. SESI hopes that the students at NIT Silchar, some of the brightest minds in the country would prove to be a great help in this cause if they're guided in the right direction.

    The workshops conducted by SESI at NIT Silchar taught the students about the basic theory and practical knowledge about the Solar Photovoltaic and Solar Thermal technology. The event was inaugurated by the director of NIT Silchar, N. V. Deshpande and conitnued over a period of seven days.

    Talking to Coolage, the head of the body, Mr. Rohit Thakwani said, "The lectures were the first major event of the body and I'm glad they went great. We weren't expecting such great response. Future plans of SESI include, conducting a National level seminar with the presence of Mr. Farook Abdulla and such eminent personalities."

    Another member from the organizing committee, Mr. Sahil Kala while talking to Coolage said, "This workshop was taken by our student chairman, Mr. Rohit Thakwani, who had undergone training at the ministry of renewable energy. The workshop was a grand success. The feedback received was very encouraging. The students learnt all the topics very well and most of them have started doing small projects on solar energy."

    This is a great initiative by SESI and we do hope that it conducts such workshops in various other engineering colleges across the country as well.
