Solar Power Training for 2014

NEW COURSE MODULE COMING SOON! IST offer courses for 2014 as bellows: 

Opportunities & Issues in the Indian Renewable Energy Sector 2013

Solar power in India now accounts for over 2GW of the country’s electricity generation capacity, according to government figures. Tobias Engelmeier, managing director at Bridge to India said in a recent blog that “Solar power is the only currently commercially available source of power that could both provide enough power from within the country to meet India’s rising demand and in addition offer distributed solutions that are less dependent on grid extension.” The Ministry Of New and Renewable Energy is promoting the grid connected solar rooftop systems in the country under Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission. Central Financial Assistance upto 30 percent of the benchmark cost of the project is provided for setting up of the solar rooftop systems which generate the power and are connected to the grid. Government has launched Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) on January 11, 2010. The Mission targets deployment of 20,000 MW of grid connected solar powe

বিপর্যয় এড়াতে ভূগর্ভের জলস্তর রক্ষা করার ডাক

মা টির নীচের জলভাণ্ডার যত ক্ষয়িষ্ণু হবে, তত বাড়বে দূষণ। ভবিষ্যতে এমন একটা দিন আসতে পারে, যখন তৃষ্ণা মেটানোর জল জোটানোও দুষ্কর হয়ে পড়বে। এই হুঁশিয়ারি দিয়ে কৃষি ও অন্য কাজে ভূগর্ভস্থ জলের ব্যবহার অবিলম্বে নিয়ন্ত্রণ করার পরামর্শ দিলেন বিশেষজ্ঞেরা। বৃহস্পতিবার কলকাতায় জল সংরক্ষণ সংক্রান্ত এক আলোচনাচক্রে কেন্দ্রীয় ভূ-জল পর্ষদের অধিকর্তা গৌরাঙ্গচরণ পতি জানান, সেচে ভূগর্ভস্থ জল ব্যবহারের নিরিখে পূর্ব ভারতে পশ্চিমবঙ্গের স্থান তৃতীয়। মাটির নীচ থেকে যথেচ্ছ জল তুলে নিলে আগামী দিনে পশ্চিমবঙ্গে পানীয় জলের আকাল দেখা দিতে পারে বলে সতর্ক করেছেন তিনি। শুধু তা-ই নয়, অন্য বিপদও আসতে পারে। “পশ্চিমবঙ্গের ভূগর্ভস্থ জলে আর্সেনিক ও ফ্লুওরাইডের দূষণ ছড়াচ্ছে। খুবই চিন্তার বিষয়। ভূগর্ভের জলস্তর যত নামবে, তত বাড়বে এই দুই দূষণ।” বলেন তিনি। এই অবস্থায় বিপর্যয় এড়াতে ভূগর্ভের জল ব্যবহারে সচেতন হতে আহ্বান জানিয়েছেন তিনি। কিন্তু পশ্চিমবঙ্গ সরকার তো সম্প্রতি গ্রামে সেচ-নলকূপ ব্যবহারের উপরে নিয়ন্ত্রণ তুলে দিয়েছে! এমনকী চাষিরা যাতে ভূগর্ভের জল আরও বেশি করে সেচের কাজে লাগাতে পারেন, সেই লক্ষ্যে সেচ-প

600 MW of solar rooftop installations on homes by 2018

Going by the 2011 Census, India has around 330 million houses, with 140 million houses having proper roofs which can accommodate on an average 1-3kWp of solar PV system. Among the 140 million houses, around 130 million are having two rooms. Besides, there are other commercial buildings, shopping complexes and offices that can accommodate larger solar PV capacities. Taking into account the houses with two rooms, approximately 25000 MW of solar capacity can be installed by putting solar panels on 20 per cent of the roofs. With quality sunshine around the year, and huge availability of rooftop space in the country, India can kick out the power woes by installing solar panels on them. As of now, there is clear lack of awareness and the will to harness the potential that could help the country address the issue of energy security to a greater extent. A market study on the residential solar segment in India and estimates that this market will grow up to 600 MW by 2018. This equates t

Green Business Workshops & Training

To turn the youth into green jobs, we need to train and educate youth such that they have the skills that match the work required for development. India today faces a major skills mismatch in the job market, where workers do not have the specific skills that business leaders need in their employees. At IST we aim to provide the PV solar technical skills with business and personnel management. We place focus on practical based learning with a stronger emphasis on skills, along with using the latest case studies. This form of learning will also demonstrate a model to build a new education system for India, founded on practical realities that our future workers will face. Green energy Training and Workshops IST provides training courses and workshops with basic skills and knowledge on climate change and environmental sustainability within business, that will increase your green job potential. We will do an introduction on PV solar system and its solutions, an over view of the

Accelerating Solar Energy at the Local Level

There are some common misunderstandings about solar technologies that we run into, that we need to clear up so that you can all become advocates for solar if you are not already. hroughout the course you will learn a range of practical skills to enable you to work as a domestic installer. You will be assigned your own consumer unit and from there build lighting circuits, socket outlet circuits, cooker & shower circuits and much more. You will also learn the essentials of earthing and bonding as well as how to correctly use the tools of the trade.

Environmental Education through Green-Club

S tudents are initially invited to help with our local environmental activities and those who are interested are then selected to enroll. The membership fee is 10 rupees, and they receive a Green Club note book. Objectives of the Green Club Their objectives are: To create awareness of biodiversity conservation and local environmental issues among schoolchildren. To create a ‘clean and green consciousness’ among students through various innovative methods. To involve Green Club students in open-orientation programmes in schools and public areas. Phase 1: environmental awareness programmes One-day environmental education camp One-day environmental education camp (EEC) are exclusively for Green Club students. Once a Green Club is formed, all members are brought together to the Genetic Garden, and briefed with a short introduction about: the environment, an explanation of Green Club goals, a slide show on the vanishing forest, a video on “Green Health”, as well as an
