Wind Energy Technology & Applicationnology & Application
4 February - 3 March, 2015, Chennai, India
Organised by NIWE

With the rising concerns on climate change, countries are under pressure to turn to Renewable Energy (RE) sources and reduce CO2 emissions. Amongst RE sources, Wind energy has proved a highly successful energy option and about 319 GW has been installed worldwide. Earth's commercially viable wind power potential is estimated at 72 TW which is five times more than World's total energy demand. With such a huge potential, only very few countries are using wind power. USA, some of the European countries and Asian countries like China and India are using wind energy on a large scale and it is in startup stage in many parts of the world. Lack of skilled human resource has been one of the main barriers that hinders wind and other renewable energy diffusion.

Objectives

  • The prime objective is to transfer knowledge and special skills to the international participants
  • To build skilled human resource so that there will be advancement of wind energy in the participating country
  • To provide an invaluable platform for exchange of professional and cultural experiences among diverse participants
  • To leverage the research that continues to shape this rapidly evolving discipline

17th National Training Course : Wind Energy Technology: 18 - 20 March, 2015
Chennai, India
Organised by : NIWE

Indian Wind Industry faces serious shortage of skilled man power to meet the huge demand of this booming industry. Completely indigenous and low-cost wind turbine design remains a challenge due to non availability of skilled human resource and research infrastructure. To assure timely evolution of wind industry and to meet India's demands and development of rural areas, human resource development is a matter of immense interest. NIWE is continuously addressing these issues by organizing national & international training programmes since 2004 to produce quality human resource for wind industry. Till now, about 1000 national and 280 international participants were trained by NIWE through its 17 national and 13 international training courses including special training courses. All the training programs have been well received by the participants and appreciated for its wide coverage of interdisciplinary syllabus, quality of lectures and hospitality. With this vast experience and its pre- eminent position, NIWE has all the knowledge and facility to undertake such an important task.
