Department of BioenergY

There is no alternative to energy  but certainly there is alternate energy....

In 1982, Department of Agro Energy was formed by establishing an Agro Energy centre with the assistance of then Department of Science and Technology, Government of India. The department was renamed as Department of Bioenergy with more support from Government of India. An University plan scheme on Strengthening of Department of Bioenergy was added during 1990. Subsequently ICAR funded schemes on Renewable Energy Sources (Solar, Wind, Biomass and Biogas) were added and MNRE funded training programme on biogas technology was initiated. During 1990, an Indo-Swedish programme on Fuel Cell Technology was started.
Recently schemes funded by Indo US, ICAR, MNRE, TEDA, DST and private agencies are in progress. The major objective of this department includes supplementing or replacing the conventional energy now being used in the farming sector with renewable energy.
