Renewable energy is energy which comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, and geothermal heat, which are renewable (naturally replenished). About 16% of global final energy consumption comes from renewable, with 10% coming from traditional biomass, which is mainly used for heating, and 3.4% from hydroelectricity. New renewable (small hydro, modern biomass, wind, solar, geothermal, and biofuels) accounted for another 3% and are growing very rapidly. The share of renewable in electricity generation is around 19%, with 16% of global electricity coming from hydroelectricity and 3% from new renewable. By looking at above facts renewable energy has got tremendous job opportunities in future.
The masters programme in renewable energy is aimed at students wishing to develop critical understanding of the significant changes afoot in the energy system due to the development and integration of wind, marine, biomass and solar technologies. The course will provide graduates of a calibre capable of developing and implementing creative solutions to the problems encountered in renewable energy capture, conversion, storage and management.
This M.Tech programme is concerned with the concepts, applications, design, development and deployment of renewable energy converters, and energy storage and demand management systems. The aims are to enable the students to:
* develop detailed knowledge and critical understanding of the core skills in
renewable energy resources, converters and systems.
* develop and use a significant range of principal and specialist skills,
techniques and practices in renewable energy.
You can do your masters programme in renewable energy with solar energy in top institutions like IIT , NIT , by qualifying in GATE examination with high scores.
