At RGTU an innovative project of development of 80kW Solar Wind Hybrid has been undertaken under sponsorship of Min of New and Renewable Energy Resources, Govt. of India in 2007. The project is under installation. It comprises of 5 wind turbines each of 12kW capacity integrated with Solar power of 3kW and each separately connected to electric load of Street lighting, Boys hostel, Administrative block and two Academic blocks of RGTU.

(x) Development of 500kg/day CO2 Absorption and its conversion into Hydrogen, Methane and Biodiesel at RGTU, 2008

This is one of the high value impact project aligned to mitigate climate change by designing and developing a Pilot Plant for capture of 500kg per day of CO2 and its conversion into Hydrogen, Methane and algae based biodiesel. The project has been sponsored by Dept of S&T Govt. of India and is in advanced stage of its implementation at RGTU Green Energy Technology Park.

(xi) MNRE 100 kW Solar Photovoltaic Project at DTU, Co-Investigator Dr. J.P. Kesari.

Under this project a 100 kW Solar PV Plant is being installed at DTU to showcase latest technology developments in the areas of Solar PV.

(xi) MNRE 100 kW Solar Photovoltaic Project at DTU, Co-Investigator Dr. J.P. Kesari.

Under this project a 50 litres per day Biogas plant is being developed for installation near the DTU Canteen to utilize the kitchen waste from University Canteen and Hostel Messes.

(xiii) Development of a Biodiesel reactor for production of Bio-Diesel from waste cooking oil-Department of Environment, Government of India, 2010. Phase I completed and Phase II in progress. (Co-Investigators: Prof. S Maji, Dr. S S Kachhwaha & Dr. Amitpal)
