IOCL-BHEL-IITJ Joint Workshop
Discussion for Finalization of DPR for
an Experimental CSP Plant at IIT Jodhpur

8-9 July 2015 at IIT Jodhpur

Being located on the Sun-city Jodhpur, with 320 days of bright sunshine, IIT Jodhpur is working on both Solar Photovoltaic and Concentrated Solar Thermal Technologies. The objective is end-to-end technology development in Solar Thermal Technologies, in particular. To assist this goal, among other initiatives, a joint Memorandum of Collaboration (MoC) is signed in October 2011 between IIT Jodhpur, Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOC-R&D) and Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL). Setting-up of an experimental Concentrated Solar Thermal Power (CSP) prototype test-bed at IIT Jodhpur is envisaged. As the starting point, a Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the planned CSP test-bed is being prepared. This DPR aims to consolidate the required steps towards achieving this goal. It is expected that the gained insight to these technologies will allow their adaptation in arid Indian conditions, like, in the state of Rajasthan.

The Joint IITJ-IOCL-BHEL Workshop during 8-9 July 2015 aims to present the draft DPR and identify potential partners for this test-bed at IIT Jodhpur. Moreover, during this workshop, the invited participants (administrators, industries, researchers), who have special interest on Solar Thermal Technologies, will share their valuable experiences in these upcoming technologies.
