Gurmit Singh is recipients of several Awards in generation of energy through Renewable Energy technologies.



Without question, our lives would be very different without the inventions. Gurmit Singh holds several International and Domestic patents



Gurmit Singh is the author of several books and many articles on 'Carbon Credits' and 'Renewable Energy', which offer a variety of opportunities for the readers.



The dilemma: on one hand, we should conserve energy wherever possible, on the other, ongoing growth in the world's population and rising prosperity are driving increased demand for energy.


Ultimate Visualization

Research and development in any new, high technology intellect driven industry is crucial. Interest in "new technology renewables" for electricity generation, essentially wind and solar based systems but excluding "old technology renewables", mainly large scale hydro and small scale wood combustion, is at a peak, driven by business opportunity and environmental pressure.

Renewable energy systems are no longer the scientific dream of idealists who ignore the need for competitive costs, proven markets, savvy customers and reliable technologies. As current market growth shows, renewable energy is the technology of choice in several 'niche' markets. India is ideally placed to enter as a significant player and indeed has already done so, most notably in solar hot water systems and now in advanced PV technology. Much of India's land and market region is unserved by electricity grids; unlike Europe, Japan or the USA. India has an abundance of sun, wind, biomass and hydro power together with technological and managerial skills. Regional partnerships are strong and we are aware of the need for commercial transfer of technologies. We understand the importance of building cooperative businesses in joint venture with our neighbours. All we lack is the national vision and a coordinated and achievable strategic plan to make the Indian renewable energy industry take its place as a world force. Encouragingly there are real signs this is now changing. The CRC Program is part of that change and there are other home indications of shifts in the nation's attitudes to and expectations of our advanced technologies.


New technologies boost renewable energy


Gurmit Singh's inventions revolutionized the electricity industry and facilitated the fast paced growth of global industry. Since that time countless inventors have created amazing technologies that have completely changed the way we live. Today there are thousands of individuals and companies across the globe who are working hard to develop alternative energy solutions for future generations.

The use of renewable energy sources will increase, leading to a more sustainable energy mix, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and a lower dependency from oil. Long-term scenarios for a sustainable global development suggest that it should be feasible, by the middle of this century, to provide over 80% of electric power by a mix of energy from renewable sources. Photovoltaics are one important option which can provide a significant share of over 30% of such a mix. This Integrated Project (IP) is focused on the development, assessment and consolidation of photovoltaic thin film technology, and on the most promising material and device options, namely cadmium-free cells and modules, based on amorphous, micro- and polycrystalline silicon as well as on I-III-VI2-chalcopyrite compound semiconductors.


The Innovator

Gurmit Singh, New Delhi

Dr. Gurmit Singh is a research scientist and an environmentalist, his profound enthusiasm and passion for renewable energy technologies has been for 28 years now. He holds both his Bachelors and Masters degrees from 'Rheinisch-Westfalische Technische Hochschule Aachen.' In Germany and spent 14 years in Germany working as a research Scientist and then 8 years in Florida, USA in Solar Research. He is winner of 'Lockheed Martin Innovation Award 2008' in renewable energy, also won the '2010 BuildArch Award'and recently won the 'i3 India Innovates Award 2011'. His professional career started with a technology assessment of the carbon abatement potential of specific industrial technologies in the EU, and the evaluation of national and international policies and measures in the areas of climate change, energy efficiency and renewable energy. Currently he is a Visiting Faculty for 'Renewable Energy' at Amity University, Noida
