International Conference on "Solar Homes"
& Green Energy Expo

front13 to 15th March 2012; Mascot Hotel, Thiruvananthapuram

ANERT is organising an International Conference on "Solar Homes" at Thiruvananthapuram from 13th to 15th March 2012.

The theme of the conference is “Solar Homes”. The Conference focuses on the technical and the socio-econo-ecological aspects of Roof-mounted Grid-connected Solar Electric Power Systems (to generate electricity from the roof top and to sell the electricity thus generated to Electric Supply Company by feeding to the nearby distribution line). Such programmes, like the "Million Solar Roofs programme", have been implemented in US, Germany, Japan, Australia, Spain and many other countries. 

Kerala with its shortage of power, availability of abubdant sunshine, but with scarcity of huge tracts of land for solar photovoltaic or wind power plants, is looking at rooftop solar photovoltaic power plants as an alternative.  Kerala is  launching the "10,000 Solar Homes" programme in 2012-13 whereby 10,000 solar power plants of 1 kW capacity each (totalling 10 MW), would be installed as grid-tied power plants.

The objective of the conference is to provide a forum to professionals, policy-makers, industry, non-government organizations (NGOs) and other segments of the society to share knowledge and experience on various aspects of renewable energy.

During the year 2012-13 ANERT is aiming a generation of 10 MW from such installations. As a prelude to launching of this 10,000 SPV Home programmes, experts having practical experience in such projects are sharing their knowledge and expertise in this conference.  We have eminent speakers/faculty from Australia, Germany, China, Singapore, Taiwan, and UAE. Their presentation would dsicuss the strategies and learnings in implementing such programmes.
