ReNew Power Center of Excellence

The Renew Power Center of Excellence for Energy and Environment was set up in IIT Delhi in the year 2017 by our Alumnus Mr Sumant Sinha (BTech. EE  1987) with a substantial commitment. The objective is to promote clean energy related research and foster regular exchange of ideas between industry with academia and policy makers to accelerate adoption of renewable energy.  

It will be a leading center and a world-class research facility that develops renewable energy applications suited to Indian context. The research center will provide advice papers and status reports for Government of India and multilateral organizations on renewable energy policy matters. The objective of the research center will be to create a channel for a strong collaboration between faculty and students of IIT Delhi and technical and management team of ReNew Power along with other leading foreign companies and institutes in the area of renewable energy.

Mr. Sumant Sinha is the Chairman and Managing Director of ReNew Power Limited, which is the largest renewable energy IPP in India in terms of total energy generation capacity with a total capacity of 5.85 GW in May 2018 and with a strong track record of nearly doubling its operational capacity in each of the last three fiscal years.

We would like to thank Mr Sumant Sinha for his belief in the above vision and providing IIT Delhi the platform for implementing and executing this vision.
