Pune UniversityThe School of Energy Studies at Savitribai Phule Pune University, located in Maharashtra state, has set up India’s first vacuum tube testing centre. The investment was around INR 4 million (about EUR 50,000) and was funded entirely by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE). “Considering the expertise available at our university – in physics, electronics, as well as chemistry - it was the obvious choice,” Professor Subhash Ghaisas, Director of the School of Energy Studies, said. His institution also has the first testing centre for concentrating solar thermal technology, which was inaugurated in July 2014.
