Web-GIS Tool for estimating the Rooftop Solar Power potential for Indian Solar Cities
With a view to provide impetus to rooftop solar PV systems uptake in the country, TERI with support from Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation (SSEF) has developed a first-of-kind cloud based open-source Web-GIS tool for estimating rooftop solar power
potential for Indian Solar Cities. The main objective of this study is to develop a high performing, and flexible Web-GIS tool to estimate the rooftop solar power potential for Chandigarh area. The strategic support is being provided by Chandigarh Renewal Energy Science and Technology Promotion Society (CREST), and Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India. The official release of this tool (Version 1.0) is available here. For more information about this initiative, and accessing the Renewable Energy Geo-Spatial Gateway of India, click here .

SPV4ALL Mobile Application
Solar PV for all (“SPV4ALL”) is an initiative taken by The Energy and Resource Institute (TERI), and supported by Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation (SSEF) to promote solar PV systems in India. The ‘SPV4ALL’ mobile application is initially developed for Android mobile devices, using which users can estimate the electricity production of a grid-connected or, off-grid solar photovoltaic system based upon few simple input parameters. To use the solar simulation tool under ‘SPV4ALL’ mobile application, user will need to select a location of interest on map either through find location or, using in-built GPS, specify the space available to install the solar PV system, and provide some basic information about the system cost, and electricity rate. ‘SPV4ALL’ mobile application calculates estimated value of electricity production, capital investment cost, CO2 savings, payback, find local solar PV installers etc. for the user define solar PV system. >> Read More
Conference on 'Accelerated Deployment of Rooftop Solar PV Systems in India'
The conference held on 12 March 2014 at New Delhi was majorly focused on accelerated deployment of rooftop solar PV systems in India. The forum also provided an excellent opportunity for various stakeholders to dialogue, and share knowledge on technological options for promoting rooftop solar PV systems in the country. More than 100 delegates participated in this event. >> Read More
Inauguration of Solar Lighting Laboratory
TERI has established a Solar Lighting Laboratory, a first of its kind in South Asia, to provide a platform for quality testing of off grid lighting products, adhering to international standards. A unique infrastructure created for testing, training and knowledge transfer, this laboratory can test products in accordance with methods specified in the International Electro technical Commission’s (IEC) framework for evaluating off-grid lighting products. >> Read More

Solar-Hybrid Charging Station for Electrical Vehicles
Carrying further the philosophy of making the TERI Gram campus an IC engine, and pollution free zone, TERI has set-up a solar-hybrid charging station with an installed capacity of 3.6kWp SPV array which can be used to charge the existing EVs operating in TERI Gram premises, as well as provides parking space for those vehicles.
Innovative Smart and Sustainable Off-Grid Solutions for Rural Electrification
TERI has designed, installed and commissioned first-of-kind three-phase off-grid solar PV plant in Chikli Village, Madhya Pradesh, one of the sites under TERI Norwegian Framework Agreement (NFA). The hybrid system is designed in such as way in which solar energy is directly supplied to the load in day-time (through AC Coupling), and there is provision to store additional energy in the battery-bank, which can be used in the night-time to cater the critical loads, through Intelligent Battery Management System (BMS).
