Renewable Energy Action Learning Lab: Schneider Electric India

The action learning laboratory on renewable energy is established in sponsorship and partnership with Schneider Electric India. It is equipped with Schneider electric benches (off- grid, micro-grid, hybrid, and water pumping systems), solar panels, inverter, controller, battery, DC fans, LED systems, soldering bench, computer, projectors, electrical and mechanical accessories. It adheres to the procedures mandated in training manuals provided by Schneider.

Unique Features

The action learning laboratory generates its own power endeavouring towards SDG 7 and it is completely run by solar photovoltaic power.
