Moser Baer Signs an MoU with IIT Kanpur for Developing Advanced Clean Energy Technologies

INVC,, Delhi,, Moser Baer, a cutting edge tech-manufacturer, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur to institute a research & development programme in advanced clean energy technologies. The projects will focus on energy generation using solar photovoltaics and energy efficiency using organic solid state lighting. The research work will be conducted from IIT (Kanpur) and MBI will extend a fund of Rs 25 lakhs annually and work closely towards successful completion of this initiative. This unique industry-academia linkage is slated to come up with futuristic technologies solutions that will redefine both photovoltaic and solid state lighting. Speaking about the tie-up Dr. G. Rajeswaran, Group Chief Technology Officer, MBI said “Moser Baer has been a technology pioneer in India and a global leader in world-class manufacturing of high technology products. Sustained long term commitment, continued support of advanced research and development programs and rapid commercialization of resulting technologies is key to the continual rejuvenation of our businesses and corporate growth. Therefore, it gives us great pleasure to partner with IIT Kanpur, a premier institute of higher learning and a beacon of technology excellence in India. We will direct our joint multi-year programs towards addressing clean energy and energy efficient technologies. Our joint research programs in solar photovoltaic and solid state lighting technologies will be of great relevance to India’s future energy needs in grid-connected and off-grid segments. Prof. Sanjay G Dhande, director IIT Kanpur said, “IIT Kanpur is enthusiastic about its research relationship with a leading and dynamic Indian company such as Moser Baer. So far, faculty and students of IIT Kanpur have developed excellent research partnership with international companies (e.g. Chevron, Intel, Boeing). It is time now that Indian institutions and Indian companies join hands for developing innovative ideas which are converted into successful economic ventures. IIT Kanpur has established a centre for research on Organic Electronics and Large Area Electronics, an area in which world leadership is still evolving. The centre, which is well supported by the government funding, will also endeavor to bring industry-academia-government, all on the same platform, working towards a common goal to develop inexpensive, clean and green technologies for the country’s energy needs. Scientists and technologists drawn from various disciplines at IIT Kanpur will actively support this collaborative work taken up under the MoU with Moser Baer.”
