The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India which has been pioneering this activity, has plans to facilitate further growth to achieve the vision of ‘affordable and reliable clean energy’ to every citizen of the country. The target set by Govt. of India is 100GW of Solar Installed capacity by 2022. The rapid growth in this sector would require an extensive pool of competent manpower (knowledgeable and skilled) to design, install and maintain the Renewable Energy systems. Against this background, the MNRE has proactively worked to meet the demand for the future Human Resource (HR) needs in the Renewable energy sector.
National Institute of Solar Energy (NISE) is an Autonomous Institute of Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India recently created by converting its erstwhile Solar Energy Centre to function as an Apex National Centre for research and technology development and related activities in the areas of Solar Energy Technologies in the Country, located at Gurgaon- Faridabad Road, Gwal Pahari, Gurgaon. Under the skill development initiatives of the MNRE, NISE is mandated as the nodal agency for implementation of all Solar Energy Skill Development Programs including “Suryamitra Skill Development Program (SSDP)”.
