Initiatives taken up for enhancing the energy security of the country:

  • Development of the Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) Technology, as suited to coal gasification based power generation in India.
  • Development of LED materials and devices for Climate Friendly Energy Conservation.
  • Development of the Advanced Ultra Supercritical Technology for coal-based Power Generation.
  • Launching of the Pre-project R&D for the Development of Boilers with Advanced High Temperature Materials.
  • Launching of the Pre-project R&D for the design and development of blade profiles for high pressure turbine for Advanced Ultra Supercritical Parameters.
  • Development on Super Bright White Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) for Solid State Lighting (SSL) Applications.
  • Supported to establish the technical feasibility of upgrading a 6.2 MWe IGCC technology based thermal demonstration plant of the Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), Tiruchirappalli, to~ 100 MWe..
  • Prepared the Mission Document for 9th National Mission on Clean Coal (Carbon) Technologies under the National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC).
  • Constituted an Apex Committee for an Integrated Photonics Initiative to develop a Road Map for research and development in various streams of Photonics, thereby identifying the thrust areas. The identified thrust areas are:
  1. Laser Diodes and Laser Diode Arrays.
  2. Plasmonics.
  3. Fibre Lasers.
