Centre for Energy Research

Dr. U.B. Mujumdar
Centre Co-ordinator

Energy Research Centre (ERC) refers to a team, shared facility and an entity that provides best practices, research, support or training for a focus area. The main purpose of the Energy Research Centre is to encourage and facilitate the various Departments in the Institution to work together by associating the likeminded faculty members to cooperate and collaborate in their programmes and activities on a regular basis, by cutting across departmental and/or discipline barriers.

Energy Research Centre is a central facility to generate synergy efforts for coordinating the disciplinary/ interdisciplinary research and providing solutions for Energy related issues.


  • To develop competency to address complex technical problems related with energy.
  • To strengthen the interdisciplinary research in Energy
  • To provide solutions for energy related issue.

Short term goals

  • To conduct focused research leading to publication of research paper(s) in reputed journals
  • To develop state of art training facilities in the focus area/areas
  • To develop innovative solutions on specific problems in any of the above mentioned focus area.

Long term goals

  • To make the Energy Research Centre self-sustainable through the revenue generation from Research grants and Consultancy
  • To have strong Industry linkages by National and International collaborations
  • To establish as one of the best centres for Energy Research in India.
