Abundant and economical energy is the life blood of modern civilizations. Coal, nuclear and hydro are used primarily to make electricity. The bargraph shows oil, coal and natural gas together supplying 85 percent of the world's energy supply. North Eastern Region (NER) is one of the potential Hydro/Wind Power regions of the country. It is enriched with huge water resources carried by large & small river systems and average wind speed 5-8 km/hrs. Moreover, the surface water resource of the region is near 652.3 billion cubic meters which is 34% of country’s total water wealth. However, due to remote location and inhospitable physical conditions the huge water and wind potential were not fully utilized. The ongoing efforts to harness the vast hydro-power potential through series of dams has posed an unprecedented threat to the water, social and ecological security of the region. These hydropower dams involve the setting up of large infrastructural which in turn leads to deforestation and disruption of forest ecosystems and reduction of biodiversity. In contradiction, small hydro/wind projects combine the advantages of sustainable hydro/wind power with decentralized power generation and also it can be integrated into existing irrigation structures flood control, etc. Therefore, it (small hydro and wind projects) is well suited to the NER India. In order to further boost the development of small hydro/wind power projects in the NER –India, there is a need to share the views in the field through organizing a national seminar covering the advances made in planning, technology selection and implementation of small hydropower projects.

  The seminar will promote research & developments and challenges faced in the areas of wind, hydro, solar and other renewable energy resources. The ultimate goal is to highlight the current research problems and evolve at the suitable solutions. Therefore, we welcome research articles and case studies on any one of the below mentioned tracks but not limited to:
  • Wind Power Technology and Instrumentation
  • Wind Farms Construction
  • Challenges in Wind and Renewable Energy
  • Next Generation Wind Power
  • Hydro Power Technology
  • Nano Technology for Wind Power
  • Global Trends in Wind Energy Commercialization & Investment
  • Wind Conditions
